Spicer became the third member of the Jaguars defensive line to ink a new deal this offseason, as defensive tacles Rob Meier and Tony McDaniel signed extensions a little over a month ago. At that time, we explored some of the many reasons why the Jaguars would reach out to extend Spicer in this article http://jac.scout.com/2/758686.html. Now that the deal is official, both sides can move on and the Jaguars most effective pass rusher from a year ago can worry about keeping himself healthy an effective for the 2008 season.
Spicer didn't have much leverage, due to the team drafting defensive ends in both the first and second rounds. Still, Spicer was arguably the team's defensive MVP from a season ago and he has been a loyal member of the franchise and community since 2000. The deal also sends a signal to the younger players that if you work hard and take care of business on the field, the front office will reward you despite your age.
