The Jags signed Watson, a former Buccaneers linebacker, to a three-year deal this past offseason that included $1.5MM in guaranteed money. However, he battled multiple injuries during OTAs and training camp and didn’t produce much once he got onto the field.
The 26-year-old has 69 career games of experience dating back to 2010. In 2013 with Tampa Bay, Watson appeared in 15 games and recorded 42 tackles and two sacks. This season with the Jaguars, Watson started in just one game and turned in a total of 14 tackles.
