Jacksonville Jaguars trim the competition at the ‘LEO’ position, part ways with veteran

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell made a huge emphasis in year one on rebuilding the Jaguars’ secondary. Though the verdict is still out, it seems that Caldwell has found a nice gem in safety Johnathan Cyprien. This year, in free agency, he made a huge emphasis on the pass rush. Notice I said pass rush, not defensive line. The defensive tackle position is one...

Jacksonville Jaguars still on the hunt for a big-bodied, one-tech defensive tackle

Even if you’re a die-hard Jaguar fan like myself, you have to admit, the defensive line play last season was quite pitiful. Luckily, thanks to the work of general manager David Caldwell so far this offseason, the defensive line is greatly improved. The Jaguars will likely have three new starters along the defensive line with Sen’Derrick Marks being the starter from year ago...

Jaguars’ fans should expect a defensive improvement in 2014

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense hasn’t been one that’s been too spectacular within recent memory. The days of John Henderson, Marcus Stroud and Mike Peterson are long gone and the Jaguars have been trying to find their predecessors over the past five years or so. With one of the largest salary caps in football, the Jaguars have definitely addressed this need in the past free...

Jaguars defensive line still a work in progress

The Jacksonville Jaguars wasted little time making over their defensive line in their first year under head coach Gus Bradley and defensive coordinator Bob Babich. But transforming that line into one of the NFL's better such units is going to be a far more time-consuming process. When the Jaguars stood at 0-8 at the halfway point of the season, their defense had given up at least...

Jacksonville Jaguars: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

The Jaguars were essentially shut out in their opener, only scoring on a safety. Kansas City is a tough defense, but the fact is that Blaine Gabbert remains one of, if not the worst starting quarterbacks in the NFL. He completed just 16 of 35 for 121 yards and 2 interceptions without a score, but even worse is that just 22 of his yards came through the air. The rest were after the...

Jaguars looking to make their Marks on D

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense in 2012 was a disaster of a unit. Busted coverages, no pressure, and players consistently not trusting each other to play in their roles, led to the worst defense that the Jaguars have ever had. 2013 is looking like there could be a huge turnaround for the unit. New player acquisitions like Sen’Derrick Marks and Roy Miller, draftees Jonathan Cyprien...
