Dekoda Watson agrees to terms with Jaguars

While the Jaguars aren’t swinging for the fences, they’re hitting a bunch of singles in free agency.

They’ve added defensive end Red Bryant, running back Toby Gerhart, and guard Zane Beadles.  Now, per a league source, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with linebacker Dekoda Watson.

Formerly of the Buccaneers, he’s primarily a special-teams contributor whom the Jags hope can develop into a situational pass rusher.

The Jaguars also could be signing Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond and Lions defensive end Willie Young.

Jacksonville G.M. Dave Caldwell otherwise has been busy, re-signing quarterback Chad Henne, re-signing cornerback Will Blackmon, and shipping quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the 49ers.

    I hope Gene Smith is taking notes on how a real GM does it.

    Jags might actually matter in the next 2-3 seasons.

    They hit a home run losing Gabbert.

    I thought the Jags were only allowed to sign Seahawks? Is Walter Thurmond next?

    He can rush the passer for sure. Solid signing for the Jags, doing it right in free agency. Build depth, don’t sign “stars”.

    Solid moves by the Jags.

    He’ll be the best special teamer in Jax…. and the little that he can contribute on pass rushing will be helpful. Probably shouldn’t expect double digit sacks from him, but it’s likely he’ll get a few and block a punt or 2.

    Sad to see him leave Tampa.

    Go Bucs

    Jags on the RISE. GM Dave Caldwell is a f’in wizard.

    Hayward and now Watson gone. Thought I read they were the Bucs star special teamers.

    What’s Lovie doing?

    Let’s get it Jags!!!!!

    It’s almost a certainty that Walter Thurmond and the recently cut Chris Clemons, will be additions on the Jags.

    And that will help them immensely……

    I’m a Vikes fan who has been watching Toby Gerhart for years. The Jags have found a solid replacement for MJD. Toby plays like Eddie Lacy
