Toby Gerhart Agrees To 3-Year Deal With Jaguars

Vikings fans won’t get the opportunity to see running back Toby Gerhart back in a purple jersey next season.  Instead, he was inked to a three year deal from the Jacksonville Jaguars on day one of free agency.

Gerhart landed a nice deal with the Jaguars, where he is expected to compete for  a starting job. They are reportedly paying him $1o.5 million over the three years of the deal, with $4.5 million guaranteed.

In a time where there are a lot of big name free agent running backs available, it is interesting to see Jacksonville go out and get Gerhart so early in the process.

We at The Viking Age wish Toby Gerhart the best of luck going forward with his career.
