Jaguars sign DE Cassius Marsh to 1-year deal
The Jacksonville Jaguars have ushered in significant changes to their roster this offseason. Enter Cassius Marsh.
The Jaguars are now in the process of shoring up some much-needed pieces in order to fill it out.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Jaguars have signed defense live end Cassius Marsh to a one-year deal:
The Jaguars signed veteran DE Cassius Marsh to a one-year deal that includes $600,000 guaranteed, source said.
The departure of defensive lineman Calais Campbell has left a rather notable void up front. Meanwhile, the looming departure of defensive end Yannick Ngakoue indicates that they will need to start addressing the pass rushing department sooner rather than later.
Marsh came into the league as a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He has since bounced around the league over the last three years before spending the 2019 NFL season with the Arizona Cardinals. The 27-year-old finished his brief tenure in Arizona with 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
Although Marsh’s career numbers are rather modest, his experience should still help to serve as a stabilizing factor for a Jaguars defense that has parted ways with a number of key starters over the last year. The fact that he has been a model of durability over the last two seasons means he should be able to provide some quality depth on the edge as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end.
It is no secret that the Jaguars are in the midst of a grueling rebuild. However, they still have some notable voids to address if they want to at least be competitive in the 2020 NFL season.
