The Jacksonville Jaguars were a trending topic during free agency after they went on a shopping spree. The player who came away from their shopping spree with the biggest contract was receiver Christian Kirk, though, he received a four-year, $72 million deal that guarantees $37 million.

Of course, the deal caused many to question the Jags (though it’s not as bad of a deal as it seems), and it shook up the receiver market a bit. However, with Kirk joining a Jags team where he will receive more opportunities to be a playmaker, he just might work out.

When appearing on “Jaguars Happy Hour” with host J.P. Shadrick this week, Jags offensive coordinator Press Taylor had nothing but praise to offer toward Kirk, who he sees as a versatile weapon and good decision-maker.

“Yeah, I think that’s the biggest thing is the versatility,” Taylor said. “We can line him up all over the formation. He can do a number of different things. He can win on the outside. He’s a great decision-maker with great speed, which you don’t always hear that about receivers being great decision-makers, but he really is. So you can put him in positions to be able to adjust things and be able to get on the same page with Trevor.”

Taylor also is right about Kirk’s versatility. He’s lined up at various positions when he was with Arizona. According to Pro Football Focus, he took 1,707 snaps out wide compared to only 1,278 reps in the slot. That should make building a playbook fun for Taylor and coach Doug Pederson, but ultimately fans will have to wait until the regular season to see how Kirk is utilized.
