The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't done in free agency, despite being very aggressive on in the first day and signing four players. The team is still looking to add to the pass rush and to the secondary with the newest name on the radar being former New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Amukamara, 26, was originally a first round pick for the Giants in the 2011 NFL Draft and was actually someone a lot of people thought the Jaguars might be interested in drafting. He's started a lot of games for the Giants since he came into the league, but he's also had a lot of injury issues, including missing 13 games combined the past two seasons, playing in just 11 games last year.

At times, Amukamara has flashed Pro Bowl ability but it just hasn't been at a consistent level and he's been derailed a number of times with injuries. He's not really a fit, size/length-wise for what the Jaguars typically like to look for, but he is an outside corner and that's a position the Jaguars need to upgrade so that Aaron Colvin can move back into the slot.
