Jaguars waive Darcel McBath

Safety Darcel McBath didn’t live up to expectations as the 48th pick of the 2009 Draft with the Broncos and now he’s looking for work again.

McBath was waived by the Jaguars on Monday, making him available to any team that wants to make a claim. If everyone passes, McBath will become a free agent. He signed with the Jags in December of last season after injuries left them thin in the secondary and played in one game for the team.

He played in 20 games for the Broncos in 2009 and 2010 before getting cut at the end of training camp last year. It’s safe to say that the Broncos were expecting more from McBath, but, then, that’s true of the entire 2009 draft class.

Only Knowshon Moreno, Robert Ayers and David Bruton remain on Denver from the group. Moreno and Ayers haven’t been what the team wanted from first round picks and the three second-round picks were all massive misses in Josh McDaniels’ first year as head coach. McBath, Alphonso Smith (who cost the team a 2010 first-rounder) and Richard Quinn are all long gone from Denver with little to show for their time with the Broncos.

  1. Any current or future teams that has McDaniels on staff should keep him as far away as possible from any personnel decisions.

  2. Robert Ayers is actually developing into a very solid player. He’s a natural 4-3 end, he should never have been moved to linebacker. Just another McDaniels blunder. Ayers is never going to be a top pass rusher, but he’s a hoss setting the edge in the run game, and has flashed some ability to be disruptive as an interior rusher on third downs. Not a star, but he’s a quality three-down lineman with the versatility to play inside or out, and he still has developmental upside. Let him mature another year back at his proper position, more people will see what I’m talking about.
