CB Will Blackmon re-signs, LB Dekoda Watson visiting

JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars moved to retain depth in their secondary Tuesday.

They also took look at the linebacker position.

Will Blackmon, a veteran cornerback, re-signed with the team on Tuesday, Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell announced Tuesday afternoon amid a flurry of activity surrounding the start of the 2014 NFL league year.

Linebacker Dekoda Watson also was in town visiting the Jaguars on free-agent visit, news Caldwell discussed on the same late-afternoon conference call.

Blackmon, who originally joined the Jaguars as a free agent during the preseason in August 2013, re-signed a two-year deal, Caldwell said. Blackmon played in 15 games with eight starts for the Jaguars last season.

Blackmon, who played collegiately at Boston College, defensed 10 passes with an interception last season and also had a sack, forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The latter three came on the same play, when his sack/forced fumble/fumble recovery resulted in a game-clinching touchdown in a Week 10 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Watson, a seventh-round selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2010 NFL Draft, has spent four seasons with the Buccaneers. He has played in 60 of 64 games for the Buccaneers, starting six games. He has three sacks and four passes defensed.

Watson played collegiately at Florida State.

The Jaguars also traded quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers shortly after the start of the league year, with guard Zane Beadles expected to sign a free-agent contract with the team.
