Summary

Julius Thomas was the Jaguars big splash in the Free Agency pool this offseason as they continue to add weapons to the offense for QB Blake Bortles. Thomas has caught 24 touchdown passes in 27 games the last two seasons thanks to being a big Redzone target for the one and only Peyton Manning. Now with no Manning anywhere in sight and going to a fantasy wasteland such as Jacksonville, he is going to have to prove that he deserves the big contract and once again be that big Redzone target but this time for 2nd year QB Blake Bortles. The Jaguars are slowly growing their offensive passing game and Julius Thomas could play a big part in that development as he can be a nice outlet for Bortles in the redzone. (May 16)

Latest News

Jaguars | Julius Thomas should help in red zone (Thu Jul 16, 12:46 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is expected to help the offense in the red zone since he caught 13 passes and nine touchdowns in the red zone last season.

Our View: That's a big reason why the team brought Thomas in. Last year, the Jaguars ranked last in touchdowns (13) and completion percentage (39.1%) in the red zone. Thomas is capable of creating mismatches due to his athleticism. His basketball skill set comes through in the red zone when he can box out defenders and high point passes for six points.
