The Jaguars announced that they have signed former Titans cornerback Tommie Campbell, as Adam Caplan of ESPN.com tweets. In a corresponding move, the Jags placed fellow corner Alan Ball on injured reserve.
Campbell, 27, worked out for the Seahawks, Dolphins, Lions, and Bucs this fall but didn’t land a roster spot with any of them. His September audition with Jacksonville, however, clearly made an impression. Campbell has 37 games of experience across three seasons with the Titans with 28 career tackles.
Ball, 29, has been struggling with a biceps injury for the past week. He has arguably been the Jags’ best cornerback since joining the team last season, so this is a tough blow for Jacksonville. Ball made 15 starts last season and led the team with 14 pass deflections and a career-high 47 tackles to go along with two picks. This year, Ball recorded has 22 tackles, one interception, and three pass breakups in seven games.
