Marqise Lee went from injury-prone to Jaguars' most reliable receiver

Lee's deal is reportedly worth up to $38 million over the course of the next four seasons.

The Jacksonville Jaguars made a decision to let top wideout Allen Robinson hit the open market, and they lost him to the Chicago Bears. At even just the guaranteed money of $18 million, the Jaguars could have placed the franchise tag on Robinson in 2018 for less.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have chose to pay to keep a wide receiver, but not the one anticipated. Last season he caught 26 passes for 391 yards and two touchdowns.

Moncrief, a third-round pick of the Colts in 2014, appeared in 53 games with 27 starts over his past four seasons.

After playing in all 16 games his first two years in the league, however, Moncrief would suffer a bit from the injury bug in 2016 and 2017, playing in a combined 19 games over that span. Lee earned seven receptions for 69 yards in three playoff games. After going against paying for Allen Robinson to stay, the Jacksonville Jaguars have chosen to give a new contract to Marqise Lee.
