EDGE Analysis
It's a modest contract even by backup RB standards, but the guarantees should at least lock in Hyde for a Week 1 roster spot. The Jaguars could still bring in more bodies to compete for backup work behind James Robinson, who averaged 45.8 snaps and 20.6 touches per game as a rookie. A similar workload isn't out of the question even if Hyde also gets some carries, considering the Jags had an NFL-low 337 rush attempts last season. Robinson accounted for 71.2 percent of the attempts (240) despite missing Weeks 16 and 17.
