    Del Rio plays more of a Cover 2 style-which is a better fit for Aaron Glenn anyways.

    Why is everyone so obsessed? His depth may be nice, but he had nothing left to begin with.

    Good, maybe now we can move forward.

    Glenn's piddling production will be easy to replace.

    I have a feeling we'll hear about this with every passing TD as if AG would have made some sort of difference.

    If JJ was trying to bring back A. Glenn to be cute and save a few $ he just was burned. Terrible move if that was his angle.

    It's very perplexing that they feel better off with Reeves, Parakeete and Ogelsvbe. Sure seems riskier on the surface.
    Lets hope they saw Glenn's skills diminished. But by all accounts he played well last game.

    Aaron Glenn is the antithesis of a prototypical Cover 2 corner.

    Even though I was one of the peeps hoping we would resign him I am glad the Jags took the worry away by signing him. Now we can all collectively move on to younger talent with great potential. In Wade I trust.

    :hammer:

    Thats what I thought when I first heard he was cut..

    He was going to make 1.7 million...

    He kept 500K after bring cut..

    I think the veteran minimum for a player with 11 years or more is 820,000.

    I really hope Jerry wasn't trying to save around 400 thousand by releasing Glenn and really is assured by Wade that Reeves will be fine if TNew cant go

    I wonder if he signed for minimum in Jacksonville?

    Cover 2 corners are big a physical. They have to jam WR's at line of scrimmage to disrupt timing. 5'9 with cleats and 185 isn't very physical.

    I'm not sure what you're asking. Sure you can run a cover 2 with Glenn.

    I don't think that Jerry was trying to be cute. The only time he cuts a player because of salary is when that player just isn't giving you the value for the money, which Glenn wasn't. If they were really interested in retaining him, they wouldn't have cut him.

    I don't think Jerry would ever put his team in jeopardy to save a few dollars.

    Jaguars Sign Glenn; Release Reyes
    09/03/07

    The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed 14-year veteran cornerback Aaron Glenn and released guard Tutan Reyes. Glenn spent the last two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys before being released in final cuts on September 1.


    Glenn, 35, played in all 16 games for the Cowboys last season with one start and started their postseason contest against Seattle. The 5-9, 183-pound cornerback recorded 20 tackles and one interception along with three kickoff returns for 24 yards. His interception extended his streak of 12 consecutive seasons with an interception which is tied for the NFL’s longest active stretch along with Ty Law.


    The 14th-year veteran has started 171 of his 196 career games after being drafted by the New York Jets with the 12th overall selection in the 1994 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M. He has tallied 635 career tackles, 40 interceptions and five interceptions returned for touchdowns. The Humble, Texas native also has 115 career kickoff returns for 2,622 yards (22.8 avg.) and one touchdown. He will wear jersey No. 23.

    Releasing AG had to be a Jerry move. Isn't Wade supposed to have the scheme fit the player rather than specific players fitting the scheme? Unless Wade was BS'ing, this was a Jerry move 100%

    Really? That's you logic? If it were that simple, then Wade would be able to build a scheme around bad players. Scheme or not, you have to still be able to play. They don't think Glenn can.

    I honestly don't think JJ was looking to save a few hundered thousand while cutting Glenn.

    Seriously, given Newman's situation, and given that we're well under the cap, and that the Head Coach has openly critized the lack of depth at the position, would JJ would cut Glenn to save a few hundred thousand (while aspiring to win the division and win a playoff game(s))?

    I don't think so.

    JJ has never been one not to spend to try to win. If anything, you can blame him for overspending at times.

    My opinion is that the coaching staff probably felt they wanted to get a bit younger at the position, and that the difference in THEIR opinion between Glenn and Reeves was negligible. So you go with the younger guy who you think is about to break out.

    Now we'll see if the coaching staff made the correct decision. But I just don't think the primary motive was to save a few hundred thousand dollars.
