The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed veteran free agent cornerback Marcus Trufant, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon. Trufant flew to Jacksonville to meet with the team on Monday evening and signed later Tuesday afternoon. To make room on the roster for Trufant, the Jaguars have release veteran defensive back Antwaun Molden.
Trufant, 32, spent the first 10 seasons of his NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks as they selected him with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. Trufant spent the past four seasons under new Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley, as he was the defensive coordinator for the Seahawks.
Trufant spent the past season with Seattle as their nickel corner, playing just over 400 snaps on defense. For the Jaguars, Trufant should serves as a veteran presence who's familiar with the defensive scheme.
