Operates as No. 1 tight end

O'Shaughnessy started Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Texans and caught six of eight targets for 48 yards.

The 29-year-old was expected to open the season as Jacksonville's No. 2 tight end after Chris Manhertz signed during the offseason, but O'Shaughnessy had a strong showing in the preseason to earn the starting nod. Manhertz did manage a touchdown on his lone target, but O'Shaughnessy played 80 percent of the offensive snaps and benefitted from the Jaguars facing a 24-point halftime deficit (Trevor Lawrence attempted 51 passes on the day). Regardless, it was an encouraging level of production for O'Shaughnessy after finishing 2020 with 28 receptions for 262 yards and zero scores while operating in a reserve role.
