Jacksonville Jaguars Sign Cornerback Rashean Mathis
Rashean Mathis will be back in a Jacksonville Jaguars uniform in 2012.
According to Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars reached an agreement with Mathis on a one-year contract worth up to $5 million with incentives.
The incentives placed in the contract likely have to do with playing time as Mathis is coming off of a season ending knee injury, and the Jaguars are unsure of how healthy he will be next season.
Mathis, who is a Jacksonville native, has been with his hometown team since they drafted him in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He has been one of the team’s best defensive players in their short history.
Jaguars general manager Gene Smith identified Mathis as one of the free agents he would like to re-sign before free agency opened on March 13. He provides veteran leadership for a young secondary that played much better last season with him in the lineup.
