Jaguars, Toby Gerhart agree to 3-year deal

The Jaguars have agreed to a free-agent deal with ex-Vikings running back Toby Gerhart.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's a three-year deal worth $10.5 million, which includes $4.5 million in guaranteed money.

With Maurice Jones-Drew still a free agent, this signing increases the likelihood that MJD won't be back in Duval County.

In addition, Gerhart, the Vikes' second-round pick in 2010, should be featured more prominently in the offense than Jordan Todman based at least on the size of the deal the Jags gave to Gerhart.

Last year, Gerhart carried the ball only 36 times, but he gained 283 yards for 7.9 yards per carry and scored two touchdowns.

Over his four-year career as Adrian Peterson's backup, Gerhart has 276 carries for 1,305 yards (4.7 YPC) and five touchdowns as well as 77 receptions for 600 yards and three touchdowns.
