Thompson knows Jay Gruden's offense and had some elite stretches as the scatback in this system when they were in Washington. Staying healthy has always been Thompson's flaw. - Matt Waldman

Summary

The Jaguars were hurting to find some depth at the running back position behind Fournette and Armstead and now with the offseason signing of Chris Thompson that void looks somewhat filled. Thompson has shown glimpses of big play abilities while in Washington but injuries have really slowed things down for him. Over the past three seasons he has missed at least five games each season. Last year in 11 games he rushed the ball 37 times for 138 yards and did most of his work in the passing game, catching 42-of-58 targets for 378 yards. He will help take some of the passing downs away from Fournette this year in Jacksonville. (May 6)
