JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville is on the move in free agency, this time addressing its defense.

The team agreed to terms with two defensive players on Monday, linebacker Foyesade Oluokun and defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi, according to multiple reports.

The news came moments after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Jaguars had also agreed to sign Washington offensive guard Brandon Scherff.

Oluokun, who played with the Falcons, is getting a three-year deal worth up to $46.5 million, with $28 million guaranteed, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Oluokun is entering his fifth season in the league and coming off a career year in Atlanta. He had 192 tackles and three interceptions for the Falcons.

Fatukasi is getting a three-year, $30 million deal with $20 million of that guaranteed, according to the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Fatukasi (6-foot-4, 318 pounds) has played his first four seasons with the Jets. He had a career-best 46 tackles last season and is highly regarded as a run stopper.
