Jaguars cut cornerback Davon House

After not finding anyone willing to give anything up for him, the Jaguars did what we figured they’d do with cornerback Davon House.

According to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, the Jaguars parted ways with the former free agent pickup Monday.

He was due to make $6 million, and he was benched last year, so this one falls squarely in the category of #asexpected.

They signed him to a four-year, $24.5 million deal early in free agency in 2015, but it didn’t take long for that to look like a bad investment.

He had played well for Green Bay previously, and it will be interesting to see if the Packers have interest again, after their secondary was short-handed last year. And now that he’s been cut, it wouldn’t cost them against the compensatory picks formula, which makes it slightly more appealing that if he was an unrestricted free agent.

  1. Sen’Derrick Marks. Played very well for us for the past few.

    Malik Jackson was a stud last year.

    Paul Posluszny has been a fixture on our defense.

    You guys watch football or do you just read PFT?

  2. Was Reggie Hayward a FA? He played well before getting hurt.
    Malik Jackson had a solid year last year, his first with the Jagwads.

  3. As a Packer fan, I was surprised Jax gave Davon that kind of cash. He’s a serviceable CB but not an elite CB.
    I would think Ted Thompson gives his agent a call.
    A 3 year $10 – 12 mil deal is about right.

    Has Jacksonville ever had a free agent signing that panned out?
    .

    Well, Julius Thomas netted them a 7th round pick they otherwise wouldn’t have had.

  5. I mean, my jags usually prefer to lose games as much as possible, but there are a handful of dudes playing well – including some FAs.

    Free agency is like fool’s gold. You always overspend for a guy who was let go or cut. Those guys typically are not the ones who are born to make a significant change on any team.

    Teams find a way to hang on to their blue chip guys.

  6. If I was Davon’s agent I would blame his subpar performance on Gus Bradley, his pathetic coaching and totally lame “Leo Otto” defense.

    Gus Bradley just might have been the absolute worst Head Coach I have ever seen in 40 years of watching professional football. He was so bad that I had to question his basic football knowledge.

    Chargers made a mistake hiring him.

  7. Whatever team signs him better not give him a long-term contract or he’ll mail it in like he did with the Jags. They should only give him a contract with roster bonuses to ensure he’ll be well motivated. It’s pathetic that people can’t get motivated when a team is paying him $6M to exert some effort. I’ll be surprised if he gets anything more than the league minimum guaranteed with lots of performance bonuses.

  8. “You guys watch football or do you just read PFT?”

    To be honest, other than maybe some of their fans, who does actually watch the Jags play?

    You could say that about any of the teams that have finished under .500 for the past few.

    I don’t have time to go out of my way to watch another team play other than my own, unless it’s the playoffs.

  10. I don’t see the Packers going too hard for House. He’s an OK CB, but really would not make the secondary noticeably better. He does well if surrounded by better players. By himself, he couldn’t shutdown a light switch.
