Former Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart has signed a three-year, $10.5 million deal to likely become the feature back in Jacksonville. 

Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jaguars' standout running back who was drafted by the team in 2006, is testing free agency. In the meantime, Jacksonville added Gerhart, who has just 276 carries in four seasons since the Vikings drafted him in the second round (51st overall) of the 2010 draft. 

Gerhart, 26, has relatively low tread as he played behind Adrian Peterson in each of his four seasons in the NFL. Gerhart's heaviest workload came in 2011, when Peterson tore his ACL and sat out the final four games of the season.
