Jaguars Free Agency 2013: Grading The Moves Thus Far

The Jacksonville Jaguars made two roster moves on March 13th, the second day of open free agency.  The team cut wide receiver Laurent Robinson and signed linebacker Geno Hayes to a two year deal.  How do you, the fans, view the team’s moves from Wednesday?

Personally, I like the move to sign Hayes, especially since he provides experienced depth at a position that severely lacked it in 2012.  I would grade it as a “B” level signing because it addresses a need though does not give the team a guaranteed starter.  It would seem that Hayes could make the jump back up to NFL starter though.

The Robinson cutting was a surprise to most of us.  It seemed that Robinson would provide a strong third receiving option during the 2013 season, but, after passing his physical, he was cut.  This leaves the Jaguars extremely thin at receiver, particularly after letting Jordan Shipley walk despite being a restricted free agent.  I trust GM Dave Caldwell to make the right moves, but I don’t see how this move helps the Jaguars very much.  I have to grade this with a “C” at this time.  Moves later in fre agency could easily affect that grade.
