The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly worked out veteran defensive end Jabaal Sheard, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Sheard is an intriguing player. 51.5 career sacks. Only one year below 4.5 in his 9-year career. https://t.co/Psvh7SBWyh— Demetrius Harvey (@Demetrius82) October 6, 2020
Sheard has played for a number of teams since being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, most recently the Indianapolis Colts the past three seasons — starting all but three games in his time there and averaging over 5.0 sacks per season.
The defensive line needs all the help they can get at this point and while Sheard isn’t a game changer, he can help a young unit trying to find its way should the Jaguars sign him.
In four of his last five seasons he’s compiled double-digit quarterback hits and at least 5.0 sacks per year.
Through the first four games of the 2020 NFL season, the Jaguars have just four sacks and 19 quarterback hits — ranking them among the lowest in the league.
