The Lions agreed to terms on a one-year contract with WR Jarett Dillard, according to the team’s website.
The Jaguars have released WR Jarett Dillard, one of their top receivers last season, along with five other players.
With several wide receivers expected to be added this offseason, the heat will be on the current Jaguars WR corps to produce or else.
Jarett Dillard's foot injury has healed slower than expected, so he was was placed on injured reserve on Saturday. The team signed WR John Matthews from their practice squad to take Dillard's roster spot.
Coming off a productive season in which he set the Jaguars' franchise record for receptions by a rookie, Mike Thomas believes he is much more prepared to improve upon that production this season.
The Jaguars expect several second-year players to have greater roles in the offense this season.
