Official: Cornerback Ronald Darby Agreed to Terms with Jaguars


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars have made secondary a major offseason focus.

Among the ways they did so: Acquiring a veteran player with extensive experience on multiple teams in multiple situations.

Ronald Darby, a veteran cornerback who has played with five teams in nine previous NFL seasons, has agreed to terms with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent. The team announced the move Wednesday at 4 p.m., the start of the 2024 NFL League Year

Darby, who played last season with the Baltimore Ravens, was originally selected by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played two seasons with Buffalo, three with the Philadelphia Eagles (2017-2019), one with the Washington Football Team (2020), two with the Denver Broncos (2021-2022) and one with the Ravens.

Darby, who has started 95 of 105 career games, has eight career interceptions with 97 passes defensed. He started seven of 16 games for Baltimore last season.

The Jaguars now have eight cornerbacks on the roster: Darby, Tyson Campbell, Christian Braswell, Montaric Brown, Tevaughn Campbell, Erick Hallett II, Gregory Junior, Amani Oruwariye. They released veteran cornerback Darious Williams last week, with Chris Claybrooks and Tre Herndon becoming free agents on Wednesday.

Campbell started 10 games last season, with Brown starting six. Williams started 17 games and Herndon started four at nickel cornerback.
