JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars have scored a Pro Bowl cornerback in free agency.
Former Seattle Seahawks player Shaquill Griffin will be coming to Duval on a 3-year, $40 million deal, according to Ian Rapoport, National Insider for the NFL Network.
Griffin and his twin brother Shaquem, a linebacker, both played for the University of Central Florida and are from St. Petersburg.
When Shaquem was drafted in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Seahawks, the two brothers were once again on the same team.
Could the brothers end up on the same team again? For his part, Shaquem quote tweeted a tweet that said “DUVAL” and said he was “going home.”
Adam Schefter tweeted that at the moment, Shaquill Griffin is a restricted free agent that has not yet been tendered by Seattle.
Shaquill Griffin made history as the first one-handed player drafted in the NFL. He was born with a congenital birth defect that affected his ability to use his left hand and had the extremity amputated when he was a child because of extreme pain.
