Jaguar news from the Indy Combine
Tom Condit, the agent for recently franchise tagged safety Donovan Darius said today at the Indy combine that he and Paul Vance, Senior Vice President for the Jags, will open serious discussions to hammer out a contract for the 6-year pro out of Syracuse.
Darius and Condit are upset that the Jaguars placed the tag on the player, seriously limiting his marketability. According to his agent, one key factor that concerns Darius is the fact that the opportunity to hit the open market in free agency with a large signing bonus looming may not occur.
"The Jaguars know what type of player Donovan (Darius) is and has been for them, Condit said. "We hope that they (Jacksonville) give him what he deserves."
Additional indications coming from the Indy Combines are that the Jaguars will release defensive end Tony Brackens if a deal on a contract restructure does not occur.
If the Jaguars were to release the 7-year pro out of Texas after June 1st, it would bring a cap savings of $5.5 million.
