Antoine Cason rumors: Jaguars had a bigger offer on the table

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Cardinals signed cornerback Antoine Cason in free agency to just a one-year deal, and was a player we felt the Jacksonville Jaguars should target. The Jaguars did wind up targeting Cason however, but they missed out.

They didn't miss out for lack of trying or being too cheap, however.

Cason actually turned down a better offer from the Jaguars to sign with the Cardinals, according to a report by Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Cason, a California native, attended Arizona to play his college football and was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. He's spent his entire football career on the west coast so far and it appears he wanted to stay there.

By joining the Cardinals, Cason reunites with his former position coach Kevin Ross, who was with the Chargers for Cason's first two seasons in the NFL and is now with the Cardinals.
