On November 11th, he was released and signed with the Dallas Cowboys in a matter of days.
What was the OTTO linebacker? In an interview with 1010XL's "Jaguars Today" weekday radio show, Jaguars defensive coordinator Bob Babich describes it as a player who seals off the edge, has some pass rush ability, and could go down in a third-down situation to blitz him off the edge.
But Watson struggled with injuries and inconsistent play, starting just one game for the Jaguars, playing more than 21 snaps in a game just once, and registering only 14 tackles on the season. J.T. Thomas and Geno Hayes played better than him from the time he got here and he never did much in the way of earning a spot on the 53-man roster.
It was obvious Watson wasn't going to be around long early in the season. He struggled often against the run, which is when he played primarily, and his only decent game of the season was his last.
Personally, I think Watson was our worst free agent signing of 2014. Do you?
