Default Jaguars D Just Got Stronger

Jags just signed DE Reggie Hayward.

Quote:
By Vic Ketchman, jaguars.com senior editor

(March 2)-They targeted him and they signed him. Reggie Hayward, considered to be the top player among the free-agent defensive end crop, signed a five-year contract with the Jaguars on Wednesday evening.

“We think Reggie is an ascending player and we're excited to add him to our defensive front. We feel that alongside Marcus Stroud and John Henderson, he'll have an opportunity to generate a lot of production,” Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said of the addition of Hayward.

Hayward arrived at Alltel Stadium in mid-afternoon on Wednesday and signed the contract by seven p.m. Wednesday signaled the start of the free-agent signing period.

“I was in the office at midnight last night, we talked and it seemed like he had a lot of interest in this and this was the right fit. He knew a lot about us and John and Marcus, was interested in playing with them and for Jack. Things went fairly quickly,” Jaguars salary cap boss and lead contract negotiator Paul Vance said.

The addition of Hayward, 6-5, 275, addressed a desperate need at defensive end, where the Jaguars' top pass-rusher last season was converted linebacker Greg Favors. Hayward had 10.5 sacks with the Broncos last season, and seven of those sacks were against AFC South teams. Hayward recorded a sack against the Jaguars in week two, in a game in which Hayward was judged to have dominated the early action.

Hayward had three sacks against Tennessee, two against Indianapolis and one against Houston. The Jaguars' hope, of course, is that playing each of those teams twice in the regular season will cause Hayward's sacks total to skyrocket.

At 25, Hayward just completed his fourth pro season and is entering what should be the prime years of his career. He was a third-round draft pick by the Broncos out of Iowa State in 2001. In '03, Hayward rose to prominence with 8.5 sacks.

The Broncos had the “franchise” tag available to use on Hayward, but declined to do so. The Broncos are tight against the salary cap and would've needed to re-structure a couple of contracts to make room for Hayward, and that option may have been made further unattractive by the fact that the Broncos are switching to a 3-4 defense in '05 and Hayward is clearly not suited to play end in a 3-4.

Stroud, Henderson, Hayward. Now all we need is some speed at WR and hopefully we won't be "owned" as you say. Texans lookout, the Kitties are coming.

Carr protection anyone?

Seriously, this guy needs some lineman help or it will be Ragone/Banks to Johnson. If he is the future of the franchise, then why haven't we heard of any signings? A good RB would help lighten the load also. Two stars can't do it by themselves. There better be a tackle drafted in the first couple of rounds.

Try actually beating us once or twice before you try to tell us to stop saying we own you.

Hayward is a nice DE, but he can't help you score more than 6 points in two
games. Here kitty, kitty.

A kittie is a baby cat, are you refering to your team as a bunch of babies?

Who missed more games last season? Oh thats right Gary Coleman, I mean Leftwich. Sounds like you guys should be worrying about his protection as well instead of a D-line that was fine to begin with. Oh and have you heard of a guy named Domanick Davis??? Trust me we are just fine at RB.

If you've watched the Jags games, the pass rush is not a threat. We can make our defense look way better by adding a solid pass rusher. Paul Spicer was out after the Denver game, and the pass defense suffered because of that.. I see us being a playoff caliber team with a WR(s) who can stretch the field.

Because we had no pass rush. We had the best DTs, but we NEEDED a pass rush to relieve our CBs. With the Hayward signing, our defense has just gotten that much stronger. Now, we need to get a quality OLT in FA and then sit back and wait for the draft.

Just an expression, geez. A cat is a cat. These are grown men playing. Trying to have some fun with y'all.

And please, stop with the Gary Coleman thing. Come up with somethin' creative if you wanna diss us that badly. You hate the Jags but have a love/hate with the Titans.

Good pickup but I want Andre Johnson. Free agent anytime soon? We got plenty of money to spend. Thanks.

Hayward did have like 10 1/2 sacks last season though. That D-line keeps getting better.
