The Jacksonville Jaguars entered this offseason with just over $59 million in cap space, second in the NFL. The team made its first big move in free agency Saturday, reaching an agreement with defensive end Red Bryant for a 4-year deal, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Bryant was a starting defensive end for the Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks, where he played in former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's scheme. Bryant will reunite with Bradley, now the head coach in Jacksonville.
