Davon House: A real opportunity


JACKSONVILLE – This was about opportunity as much as anything.

And make no mistake:

For cornerback Davon House, signing with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent provides a real opportunity immediately.

House (6-feet-0, 195 pounds), a fourth-round selection by Green Bay in the 2011 NFL Draft from New Mexico State, signed as a free agent with the Jaguars Wednesday morning at EverBank Field. He is expected to speak at an introductory media availability later Wednesday.

"It's a golden opportunity, and it's an opportunity I had to jump on," House said Wednesday. "It's a blessing to be in this league and to be a part of this organization. I'm here for one reason – to do something this organization has never done, to get to the Super Bowl and win it.

"It would be such an awesome thing to say one day that I was here to help them win the Super Bowl."

House, who played in 40 games for the Packers, started 14 games in four seasons. He sustained a shoulder injury in 2012 and started four games this past season before missing the final three games with a shoulder injury.

House, who has defended 25 passes in his career with two interceptions, has 11 pass breakups this past season. He likely will play the outside corner opposite third-year veteran Demetrius McCray with second-year veteran Aaron Colvin starting at nickel corner.

"It's going to be special," he said. "It's going to be fun."

House has 74 career tackles (60 solo), with two interceptions, a forced fumble and 37 passes defensed.

"My film speaks," House said. "If my film says I'm not good, then I'm not good. But I believe my film showed that I'm a starter in this league. Even though I haven't started the way I feel that I should have, my film shows I should be out there. I feel like I'm just scratching the table.

"I feel like Jacksonville got a great deal with me for the next four years. They have something special, that's for sure."

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House.
