Griffin, 25, reportedly had strong offers from several other teams, including the Seattle Seahawks, although as recently as Monday, NFL Network's Mike Garofalo reported that Griffin and the Seahawks were "not in the same ballpark on money right now."

In the end, Griffin is signing with the Jaguars and will return to his home state of Florida.

Could the Griffin brothers play together again?

In leaving Seattle, Griffin is also leaving behind his twin brother, linebacker Shaquem Griffin. The Seahawks drafted both of them in consecutive years (Shaquill in 2017 and Shaquem in 2018), and they've been on the same team ever since. So 2021 could be the first year in their professional careers that they're not playing together.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Shaquem is a restricted free agent, and according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the Seahawks aren't planning to tender Shaquem a contract.

Jaguars coach Urban Meyer isn't on the same spending spree as Bill Belichick is right now, but he doesn't have to be to snag Shaquem. There's a chance the brothers could reunite in Jacksonville.
