Breaking: Jaguars Closing In On Deal To Sign $11.2 Million Veteran CB

The Jaguars are considering experienced cornerback assistance.

Following their selection of two cornerbacks in the NFL Draft over the weekend, the Jacksonville Jaguars are currently considering their experienced options.

The Jaguars may have opened the door to a possible addition in the cornerback room by hosting veteran Detroit Lions CB Jerry Jacobs on a visit, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC2.

After being left off of the Arkansas draft, Jacobs signed a contract with the Lions in 2021. In his 13 appearances, 9 starts, 7 pass deflections, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, 34 tackles, and 3 tackles for loss were all accomplished by Jacobs in his first campaign. PFF reports that he gave up a passer rating of 107.8 when he was targeted.

In 2022, Jacobs played a substantial amount of snaps for Detroit again. He started eight of the team’s 12 games, recorded eight pass deflections, one interception, 41 tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, and allowed a quarterback rating of 74.9.

Jacobs played in 15 games (2023) with 12 starts, accumulating 49 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions, 8 pass deflections, and 98 passer rating allowed.

Tyson Campbell, Ronald Darby, a free agency addition, Christian Braswell, Tevaughn Campbell, Erick Hallett, Amani Oruwariye, and draft selections Jarrian Jones and Deantre Prince make up Jacksonville’s cornerback room right now.

“Well, traditionally, there has been a run, usually on corners, in the second round of the draft. Following Day 2 of the draft, Trent Baalke, general manager of the Jaguars, remarked, “When they start coming, they come off quick.”

It wasn’t an unexpected development. You examine objects. You make an attempt to move. You can move occasionally and not at other times. Clearly, Houston had no intention of trading its pick. The guys we have and Jarrian’s acquisition excite us greatly, and we believe he can go in and compete right away. But the board is the board.
