The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Saturday morning that they agreed to terms on a new deal with cornerback Tre Herndon. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, it’s a one-year, $2.6 million contract for Herndon.

The return of Herndon is a bit of a surprise as a previous report indicated the Jaguars had moved on from the cornerback and other teams were showing interest.

Herndon, 27, has spent his entire career with the Jaguars after joining the team as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He earned play time as a rookie and a starting job in 2019.

In five seasons in Jacksonville, Herndon has appeared in 67 games and made 30 starts. He has three career interceptions, one forced fumble, and one sack.

In recent years, Herndon has been primarily used out of the slot, but he has also been a liability in coverage at times. While the Jaguars have now brought back both Herndon and Tevaughn Campbell, the team will likely look to upgrade its secondary in the 2023 NFL Draft.
