Report: Josh Jacobs, Evan Engram will not report to start offseason.

Two more franchise-tagged players are opting not to report to the voluntary offseason program.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, Raiders running back Josh Jacobs and Jaguars tight end Evan Ingram will be absent from Las Vegas and Jacksonville.

Neither player signed the franchise tender, so it’s no surprise that Jacobs and Ingram chose not to walk away. Jacobs is set to earn $10.091 million at the franchise tender this year, while Engram is set to earn $11.345 million.

With continuity in the offensive schemes of both the Flyers and Jaguars, it’s not like Jacobs and Engram are missing much from this part of the offseason program. In part 1, only work groups in the field can do conditioning.

Six players were franchise-tagged in March: Jacobs, Engram, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, Giants running back Saquon Barkley, Cowboys running back Tony Pollard and defensive lineman Daron Payne.

Jackson and Barkley did not sign their tenders and are also expected to sit out the offseason programs in Baltimore and New York.

Pollard signed his franchise tender and is set to play under a one-year contract. And Payne signed a four-year deal with the Chiefs just days after the club tagged him.
