The Jaguars desperately need help on defense, especially in the secondary. The Jags gave up the fourth most yards through the air in the NFL in 2015. The secondary play can partially be blamed on a lack of pass rush, but it is easy to see that the Jags need some elite playmakers in the secondary.
Insert Eric Weddle. Weddle is a three time Pro Bowler and has been named to the All NFL first or second team five times through out his illustrious career. He has racked up some truly impressive stats in his 9 years in the league — tallying 849 tackles, 19 interceptions, 71 passes defended, 5 forced fumbles and 4 touchdowns. Yes, all these numbers are very impressive, but how good is he now that he is 31 and heading into his tenth season? Damn good. In 2015 his Pro Football Focus coverage grade was an 85.9, putting him at second in the entire league, ranking ahead of esteemed players such as Earl Thomas, Eric Berry, and Reggie Nelson. Weddle could bring elite coverage skills to a Jaguars secondary that is in desperate need of some playmaking ability.
Throw Eric Weddle in the mix with Davon House, Aaron Colvin, John Cyprien and hopefully another young cornerback or safety…Hm, Hm, Jalen Ramsey … and the Jaguars could go from one of the worst pass defenses in the league in 2015 to one that is, at the very least, average in 2016.
