DE/OLB Aaron Lynch Inks a Deal with the Jaguars

Free agent Aaron Lynch, who can play both defensive end and outside linebacker, has signed with the Jaguars, ESPN reports.

The signing of Lynch, 27, is another indication the Jaguars are going to use a lot more 3-4 looks in 2020; the team has run the 4-3 defense since Gus Bradley was hired as head coach in 2013. Todd Wash came to Jacksonville from Seattle with Bradley as the defensive line coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2016, and head coach Doug Marrone retained Wash as the defensive coordinator when he was hired in 2017.

The Jaguars drafted Josh Allen last season and K’Lavon Chaisson last month, both of whom can play both defensive end and outside linebacker. After the draft, Marrone said the Jaguars would employ some 3-4 looks with the strongside linebacker playing up on the line of scrimmage.

Lynch spent the past two years with the Chicago Bears and appeared in 29 regular-season games with five sacks.
