Jacksonville is turning the heat up by searching for free agency bargains. Last Friday, the Giants released a nine-year veteran cornerback. Two teams, including the Jaguars are interested in his services.

Jason Sehorn was released by the New York Giants last Friday after the veteran cornerback refused to accept a pay cut of more than $3 million for next season.

Sehorn and the Giants had talks in recent weeks about reducing his salary this season to around $1 million, but the Giants refused to guarantee that the nine-year veteran would not be cut before training camp.

The NY Post reports the Jacksonville Jaguars have contacted free agent DB Jason Sehorn (Giants) about the prospect of moving from cornerback to free safety. The Minnesota Vikings have also contacted his agent about playing safety instead of cornerback.

The 6-foot-2 and 190 pound speedster has been hampered with injuries during his career, including a make knee surgery to repair ACL and MCL ligaments back in 1998.

Last season as a Giant, he recorded 47 tackles and two interceptions.
