The Jaguars are adding some more help at cornerback.
The former Lions cornerback will get a one-year, $2.25 million deal.
The Jaguars have also signed cornerback Darqueze Dennard from the Bengals, helping to fill in a defense which has been defined by the subtractions lately (though they did spend a pile of money on linebacker Joe Schobert).
The Jaguars will be Melvin’s eighth team in as many seasons, as he’s been with the Buccaneers, Dolphins, Ravens, Patriots, Dolphins again, Colts, Raiders, and Lions. He started 12 games for Detroit last year.
