Jaguars just reached agreement with former Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart, per source.


Solid, when he's got carries I've liked what i've seen. Solid signing.

I like it. He's a guy i hoped we would target. Have to see what the money is, but he's way better than Forsett who we axed today so that money cuts down whatever he costs.

Did a pretty good job in spot duty behind AP, obviously didn't get much chance to really take the reins there. Laughing Think he could be a solid option to carry the mail for us, and he'll definitely get the carries he wants here. Cool

He's a great power back with deceptive speed and elusiveness.

Heads up, the song played during these highlights is not safe for work.

The new Michael Turner w/o dat early burst. Same situation/story. Finna be a top 20 fantasy back. If you guys don't draft a RB....

I'm pretty sure we'll draft a running back in the mid rounds, but this is exciting if true.

congrats!!

You guys got yourself a very solid and steady player. Gerhart has played well when given the opportunity. Opportunities are obviously limited behind Peterson.

I will definitely be keeping tabs on the Jags and Gerhart this year.

He'll be a real good guy to have in a RB by committee situation, whether that be with the guys we have or a rookie. 14-ish carries a game will be good for him.

I think Eddie Lacy is a pretty good comparison, personally.

He is a solid RB back who should be the day 1 starter.

I was just goin mainly for the whole playing behind a legend, then getting the chance to flap his wings sorta deal. But yeah Lacy's prolly more accurate than Turner. With less spin move. Laughing
