Free Agency-Savage-Terms

JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars have addressed their secondary in significant fashion.

They did so on Wednesday by acquiring a veteran safety with a first-round background and extensive NFL starting experience.

Darnell Savage Jr., a safety who spent his first five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, 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.

Savage, a first-round selection by the Packers in the 2019 NFL Draft, started 69 of 72 games in five seasons with the Packers. He has nine career interceptions, with one returned for a touchdown, and has 306 tackles – including 222 solos. He has been credited with 34 passes defensed and nine tackles for loss.

The Jaguars now have six safeties on the roster: Savage, Andre Cisco, Andrew Wingard, Antonio Johnson, Daniel Thomas and Ayo Oyelola. Cisco started 15 games last season alongside Rayshawn Jenkins, the latter of whom started 17 games last season. The Jaguars released Jenkins earlier this offseason.

Wingard also started twice, with Johnson starting the final three games of the season as a rookie.
