The Jaguars have signed veteran cornerback Terry Cousin, who enjoyed his best season in 2002 while playing for Jack Del Rio in Carolina.
Cousin, who will be 30 in April, was released by the Giants on Feb. 22, following a season in which Cousin played in all 16 games and was a starter in five games. Cousin intercepted one pass and made 39 tackles.
Del Rio was the Panthers' defensive coordinator in '02 when Cousin, 5-9, 185, was a 16-game starter, intercepted two passes, had 19 passes-defensed and 57 tackles. All of those are career highs for Cousin, who signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina in 1997. Cousin played three seasons for the Bears, one each in Atlanta and Miami, then two in Carolina and one for former Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin in New York.
