While much of the national attention on the Jaguars has centered on the offense and failed attempt to trade for Tim Tebow, the signings of defensive end Jeremy Mincey, safety Dwight Lowery and cornerback Rashean Mathis mean the team will have 10 defensive starters back from last season when the unit ranked sixth in the NFL.
Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday evening said they were not direction-changing. And Mularkey said that means whatever happened this week, the franchise’s situation at quarterback remains unchanged.
Cornerback was a problem for the Jaguars in 2011. When Cox and Mathis went down, the Jags were scrambling (literally signing people off the street) to find people to play for them. Ross ensures this doesn’t happen.
