    Think he's considered a good slot guy right?

    One of the best slot CBs in the league. Great signing

    For what its worth, Jags fans seem bummed to lose him.

    I like it. Odd man out with them signing Bouye. Good pickup. Finally.

    We basically swapped DBs after a year. Would rather still have Bouye but Colvin probably comes a lot cheaper. Really good under the radar move with all the bigger name secondary out there. I forgot all about him.

    Aaron Colvin, CB, 78.5 overall grade

    Much can be said for the play of both A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey on the outside for the Jaguars’ secondary, but let’s not forget about the play of Colvin on the inside. While he may have allowed 45 receptions on 60 targets when in primary coverage from the slot cornerback position, Colvin finished sixth in the league in terms of fewest yards allowed per snap in coverage. He allowed just 0.75 yards per his 449 snaps spent in the slot while allowing a reception on every 10.0 snaps (tied for 22nd-highest total in the league). Re-signing Colvin’s reliability in the slot keeps opposing offensive coordinators still searching for a way to get their passing attacks working against the talented Jaguars secondary.

    Slot CB for the Jags.

    Still think they will push hard to add Malcolm Butler.

    Hmm. Any player would be better than what we have currently.

    So no EJ Gaines & Malcolm Butler. Hopefully still get one. Preferably Butler.





    Or Trumaine Johnson :D

    They have to. We need outside guys and JJo or Kareem are no longer that.
