2013 NFL free agency: Jaguars show interest in Tyson Clabo, according to report

Clabo missed just one game in the last five seasons at right tackle for the Falcons.

Recently released offensive tackle Tyson Clabo hasn't been on the free agent market for a day, but has already drawn interest from the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Clabo, 31, was the starting right tackle for the Atlanta Falcons in each of the last six seasons, including a trip to the 2010 Pro Bowl. Originally an undrafted free agent in 2004, Clabo bounced from the Broncos to the Giants to the Chargers and back to the Broncos before he finally found a spot on the Atlanta practice squad in 2005.

Just three weeks until the 2013 NFL Draft though, Rapoport reports that there is no rush from any teams to sign Clabo and that he will likely be a player brought in as a patch for a team that was unable to find a starting-quality right tackle in the Draft.

At age 31, Clabo wouldn't quite fit the long-term vision that the Jaguars have played towards so far in free agency; however, if the price is right, he could certainly fill the gaping hole that is right tackle that has been primarily filled by Guy Whimper and Cameron Bradfield in the last two seasons if the team is unable to find a suitable replacement in the Draft.
