NFL Injury Report:
Derek Cox might not have to wait long to find work. The free-agent cornerback isn't expected to rejoin the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he might remain in Florida, writes Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
Cox isn't going to be mistaken for Darrelle Revis, but he would address an immediate need for the Buccaneers after the team finished with the league's worst pass defense last season. The Bucs have plenty of salary cap room and -- amid reports Sean Smith is on their radar -- we wouldn't be surprised to see the Bucs sign multiple defensive backs. There is a gaping void in the secondary.
Cox alone isn't going to solve those issues, but in a deep group of free-agent corners, he represents an upgrade.
There have been rumors of Cox attracting interest from the Washington Redskins, yet the Buccaneers with its warm weather climate might be more attractive to Cox.

One of the first priorities for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2012 regular season was for the team to shore up a dismal secondary. Opposing teams threw at will against the Buccaneers secondary and it appears that Tampa might be targeting one corner on the free agent market starting tomorrow at 4 p.m. at the opening of the NFL Free Agency period.

On the eve of free agency it is good to remember the errors of the past. Yes, the Jacksonville Jaguars have a new owner, a new general manager and a new coach. Let's hope the sins of the past will not be repeated in the present. The Jaguars enter the free agency period under the cap space. They also enter the free agency period with lots of holes to fill. Before the new...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Marcedes Lewis is one of those fantasy players that you know can have a solid game and give you some pretty good satisfaction, but usually he performs like a disappointing date which you met online. Looks good at first but turns butt ugly quick...
One of the major areas of concern for the Jaguars as they head into free agency and this year's draft is the state of their offensive line, which surrendered sacks all season long in 2012. The good news is that the draft and free agency both offer them routes to upgrade one of their weakest units, and even though general manager David Caldwell wants to build through the draft...
Two new prospective cornerbacks have reportedly surfaced on the Patriots’ radar.
The Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe reports that the team has shown interest in Chris Gamble and Derek Cox. Gamble was released yesterday after nine seasons in Carolina and Cox, who has spent his four-year career with Jacksonville, is expected to hit the open market when free agency begins this week.
If it looks like a defensive end and walks like a defensive end and talks like a defensive end and is a defensive end who has ties to the community, shouldn’t the Jacksonville Jaguars want that defensive end?Let’s hope that when free agency begins April 12, the team brass has put Detroit Lions defensive end Cliff Avril at the top of its post-Christmas wish list.Avril, who played...
According to a report via Yahoo Sports, cornerback Aaron Ross, who played with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season before being cut, will sign with the team he spent the first five years of his career, the New York Giants.

Over the next couple of days, expect a lot of reports that the Patriots are "interested" or "in talks" about several free-agents. Of course, that doesn't mean they are necessarily close to signing any of them. Legal tampering begins at midnight, which essentially means free-agency starts as teams can start talking to agents.
The latest rumor involving the...
