Jags' News and Notes
Free agency market full of talented linebackers
Jags' head coach Jack Del Rio has made upgrading the linebacker core with speed, especially the middle linebacker spot in particular one of his priorities this off-season. In the unrestricted free agency market, it appears to be a rather strong year for linebackers. Look for the Jaguars to possibly fill their linebacker needs through that market. Some of the linebackers that are available are Roosevelt Colvin of Chicago, Mike Peterson of Indianapolis, Hugh Douglas, Shelton Quarles of Tampa Bay, Chris Claiborne of Detroit, Cornell Brown of Baltimore, and Takeo Spikes (transition tag) of Cincinnati, Mike Maslowski of Kansas City, Ronald McKinnon of Arizona and Chris Draft of Atlanta.
