2012 NFL Free Agency: Greg Toler

The Jaguars will be looking to add talent at many positions on the football field, including in the secondary. A player the Jaguars could be interested in is restricted free agent conrnerback Greg Toler. Tolar missed the 2011 season with a torn ACL in the preseason, but he is a player the Jaguars were at one time very interested in in the draft process. Toler is a restricted free agent who the Cardinals hope to hold on to, but it's unsure what kind of designation he will receiver.

I asked Cardinals blog Revenge of the Birds about Toler. Find out more about him after the jump.

Greg Toler, as you may or may not know, did not play a single regular season snap in 2011 due to a torn ACL that he sustained in the preseason. Before that, he was a starter across from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who is now a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Toler has exceptional speed on the outside as well as good size at 5'11". His play in coverage was up and down, but that figures to improve as he becomes more accustomed to playing in the NFL. He allowed 3 touchdowns in 2010, but he also had two interceptions and seven defended passes.

Toler will be a restricted free agent, so the Cardinals are likely to tender him and match any reasonable offer that would come his way. There is an extremely high chance that he plays in Arizona again next season.

At this point, the asking price for Toler is unknown in both what tag he will get and the price he will be asking for, given he's coming off a torn ACL. The Cardinals were confident enough in his ability however to trade former first round pick Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie prior to the start of the season.
