The Jacksonville Jaguars have come to their first agreement of the tampering period. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, they’ve come to a three-year deal with former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Roy Robertson-Harris.

The deal is one worth $24.4 million with $14 million of it being guaranteed.

Robertson-Harris, 27, entered the league in 2016 as an undrafted player for Chicago out of the University of Texas at El Paso. While there, he participated in 52 games and started in 13. He ultimately finished his career with the Bears with 75 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and nine tackles for loss.

Last week, Urban Meyer emphasized the importance of defensive line play and it’s reflecting in the early stages of free agency. With the addition of Robertson-Harris, the Jags are getting a long 6-foot-5, 292-pound defender who could end up starting. He’ll join forces with standout defensive tackles DaVon Hamilton and Doug Costin, who impressed as rookies but needed a veteran presence to help them developed.

Robertson-Harris accumulated a 67.0 Pro Football Focus grade last season. As pointed out below by Jags Wire’s Phil Smith, that would’ve ranked him second among the team’s defensive tackle group.
