The Jacksonville Jaguars are signing a pass rusher in free agency — outside linebacker and defensive end Cassius Marsh who has been a journeyman since being drafted in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.
This is according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.
Jagaurs also have agreed to terms with former Arizona LB Cassius Marsh on a 1-year deal https://t.co/MSUv48Zr8q— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) March 24, 2020
One clarification: Arizona's Cassius Marsh would be a hybrid LB/DE and rush on third down.— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) March 24, 2020
Consider him an insurance policy for potential holdout/trade candidate Yannick Ngakoue.
One concern: Marsh has 14 sacks in 7 seasons. He's not Yan
A fourth round pick for the Seahawks in 2014, Marsh never produced enough to hold a roster spot for longer than a season or two after being released in 2017. He has 14.0 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, and 25 tackles for a loss in six seasons.
He has been durable, however — he has missed just one game since 2015.
Marsh’s father, a wide receiver who played college football at Utah, was drafted in the seventh round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.
