Jaguars Not Done in NFL Free Agency

Even though the Jacksonville Jaguars landed linebacker Paul Posluszny with a rather large contract, they're not done in free agency. Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union tweets:

Next up for the Jaguars, another linebacker and a safety or two. And getting the rookies in camp, but that shouldn't be that difficult.

This is no real surprise, as the Jaguars still need to make significant upgrades at those position on their defense. With Courtney Greene, I think the Jaguars could get away with picking up just one starting safety, but I wouldn't be shocked to see them pick up a starter and someone to compete for the other starting safety position.

Some safeties the Jacksonville Jaguars have been linked to in free agency are of course Eric Weddle and Dawan Landry. There are some rumors swirling that the Jaguars are the front runners for Eric Weddle, but the San Diego Chargers are still in play. Weddle's expressed he'd like to return to the Chargers, but would entertain other offers.

There were reports yesterday that the Jaguars were interested in former Baltimore Ravens safety Dawan Landry, who I see as the fallback option for the Jaguars. I wouldn't be shocked to see the Jaguars potentially try and sign both, however that's unlikely.

On the linebacker front with the addition of Posluszny, who will play middle linebacker, it all but rules out the return of Kirk Morrison. The Jaguars will now be in the hunt to find a starting outside linebacker to go with Daryl Smith and Posluszny. A player I keyed for the Jaguars in Stephen Nicholas just agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons on a 5 year deal, so he's out. The Jaguars have rumored interest in Clint Session, so he's a guy to watch.

As far as signing their rookies, I expect all of them to be signed and practicing by Friday at the latest.
