JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Free agency begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. but teams can negotiate with players during the legal tampering period, which began at noon on Monday. The Jaguars, who have the most salary cap room to spend in the league, have reportedly agreed to terms with these players as of Tuesday evening:
WR Marvin Jones (Lions)
The first pass-catching threat of the free agency period in bringing in the 6-2, 200-pound wideout who played for Darrell Bevell in Detroit last year. Bevell is the Jaguars’ new offensive coordinator.
Jones is coming off of a career-high in catches (76) and has 51 career touchdown catches. According to Adam Schefter, Jones is getting $14.5 million with $9.5 of that guaranteed over the two-year deal.

DL Malcolm Brown (Saints)
It’s a trade for the Jaguars. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars dealt for defensive tackle Malcolm Brown to bolster their defensive line depth. Brown has started 80 games in six years across New England and New Orleans. He has 247 career tackles and 11.5 sacks. At 6-2, 320 pounds, Brown provides a big body on the line for the Jaguars. It wasn’t immediately clear of what the Jaguars gave up for Brown.
