4 FA additions Jacksonville Jaguars can still make after trade deadline
The Jacksonville Jaguars could use some help at cornerback and tight end.
There’s a clear reason why Tramon Williams hasn’t been able to find a job in the NFL and that’s his age. He’s currently 37 years old, which is akin to having ‘senior citizen’ status at the cornerback position. Nobody is going to look away from his age, but when looking at what the veteran brings to the table, we must take his 2019 production into consideration.
Just last season, Williams started seven games for the Green Bay Packers and recorded eight pass deflections, 39 total tackles, and forced one fumble. Moreover, he allowed 33 receptions on 57 targets, good for a 57.9 completion rate. These are not Pro Bowl numbers by any means, but they are solid enough to help the Jaguars less-than-stellar secondary.
Before the trade deadline, we thought of Seattle Seahawks tight Jacob Hollister as a potential target. Nothing ended up materializing but the ‘Hawks’ announced that they would be releasing Luke Willson to get down to four tight ends on their roster after activating rookie Colby Parkinson.
Early in his career, the Seahawks would stretch the field with Willson. The Rice product averaged at least 15.2 yards per reception in his first three seasons. Although his usage decreased in recent years, the Jaguars should kick the tires on him and see if he has any gas left in the tank.
