Former-Dolphins CB Richard Marshall visits Jaguars, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

Richard Marshall could provide the Jaguars with a veteran presence in an inexperienced secondary.

Update - 2:42 p.m. - The Chargers reached an agreement with Marshall, according to Pro Football Talk.

Free agent cornerback Richard Marshall visited with the Jaguars on Friday and has also received interest from the San Diego Chargersaccording to a report from Pro Football Talk.

Marshall, 28, was released by the Miami Dolphins earlier in the week after playing only one season with the team, despite signing a three-year, $16 million contract with the Dolphins in March 2012. Prior to that he played one season with the Arizona Cardinals and five seasons with the Carolina Panthers, the team that selected him in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

At 5'11, 198 pounds, Marshall doesn't have the ideal length that the Jaguars will look to target in their new-look defense, but he has enough to be an effective defender in press coverage. Furthermore, he could provide the Jaguars with a veteran presence that is absent from the secondary with the exception of Marcus Trufant.

Marshall played in just four games during the 2012 season as he struggled with a back injury that required surgery and sent him to the injured reserve. Through three games in the preseason, Marshall has recorded five tackles and one pass defended.
