The Jacksonville Jaguars will reportedly sign former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Winner of the 2013 Jim Thorpe Award given to the best defensive back in college football, Dennard is a former first round NFL Draft pick — but injuries derailed his career. He has missed 19 games in his six-year career.

But in those six years, he has been a solid nickel cornerback for the Bengals, compiling 274 tackles (five for a loss) and three interceptions.

It will be interesting to see what the Jaguars do with current nickel cornerback D.J. Hayden now that they’ve signed Dennard.
