The Jaguars have bolstered their secondary with the signing of Packers defensive back Davon House.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Davon House, per a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapaport.

The move is a bit of a surprise, but with the Jaguars losing Will Blackmon and Alan Ball, bolstering the depth is a smart move and you can never have enough good defensive backs.

House, 25, was originally drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft and he's been a solid player for the Packers in their secondary and will likely compete for the Jaguars nickel or boundary corner position.

One interesting note about House is that the Jaguars should be very familiar with him, as he played under Jaguars defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker at New Mexico State in college. House also seems to fit the "profile" for a corner in the Jaguars defensive scheme, running a 4.44 40-yard dash at the NFL combine at 6'1" and nearly 32" long arms.
