Since being drafted No. 5 overall by the Washington Commanders in 2015, right guard Brandon Scherff had been one of the franchise's best and most consistent players.
Selected fifth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, Scherff has made five Pro Bowls in his seven professional seasons with Washington. In 2020, he was named to the Associated Press first-team All-Pro squad, becoming the first Burgundy and Gold player to receive that honor since punter Matt Turk in 1996.
On March 14, Scherff reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency, ending a tremendous seven-year run in Washington.

Brandon Scherff’s contract details
On the first day of the NFL's legal tampering period in free agency, Brandon Scherff agreed to a three-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The contract is worth $49.5 million with $30 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Scherff's big payday comes after he spent the past two seasons playing under the franchise tag in Washington, as the two sides were unable to reach a long-term deal despite ongoing discussions for multiple years. Under the tag, Scherff earned a base salary of $18.036 million in 2021, the most of any guard in the NFL.
During locker room cleanout in January, Scherff stated that he wanted to play his entire career in Washington. But one day later, general manager Martin Mayhew said Scherff rejected a contract from Washington last year that would have made him the highest-paid guard in NFL history. Now, both sides have moved on.
In seven seasons, Scherff has earned $66.8 million, per Spotrac.
