FA-16x9 (3)

JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars are addressing offensive line in a big, high-profile way.

Brandon Scherff, a five-time Pro Bowl selection with the Washington Commanders, has agreed to terms to sign with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent. The Jaguars announced the agreement Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m., the beginning of the 2022 NFL League Year.

Scherff, 30, the No. 5 overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft from the University of Iowa, played seven seasons with Washington. He was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2020 and made the Pro Bowl following the 2016-2017 and 2019-2021 seasons.

Scherff was widely considered among the NFL's top available free agents entering the 2022 League Year.

Scherff played in all 16 games each of his first two NFL seasons and has started 89 games in seven seasons. Scherff missed four games in October this past season with a medial collateral ligament injury, missing two games in December on reserve/COVID-19.

The Jaguars now have two guards with extensive NFL starting experience on the roster: Scherff and Ben Bartch, the latter of whom started 11 games at right guard for the Jaguars this past season after entering the lineup when A.J. Cann sustained a knee injury Week 4 at Cincinnati. Cann and Andrew Norwell – who started 17 games at left guard last season – both became unrestricted free agents Wednesday at 4 p.m.

The Jaguars also on Wednesday announced they have agreed to terms with six other unrestricted free agents: Wide receiver Christian Kirk, wide receiver Zay Jones, linebacker Foye Oluokun, defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi, tight end Evan Engram and cornerback Darious Williams.
