Jaguars To Sign DB Don Carey

After seven years away, Don Carey will return to Jacksonville. The Jaguars plan to sign the free agent defensive back, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press (on Twitter).

Primarily a special-teamer, Carey has spent the past seven seasons with the Lions. He hasn’t started a game since the 2014 season but has been a cornerstone member of the Lions’ special teams units. Carey’s 15 special teams tackles were fourth in the NFL during the 2015 campaign.

The 30-year-old defender was a starter for the 2010 Jaguars but gradually settled into a backup role. Now in his 10th season, he’ll be expected to be a reserve player in Jacksonville’s secondary and work on its ST units.

 

Lions Extend S Don Carey

The Lions have extended safety Don Carey, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. It’s a one-year, $1.35MM deal that will take him through 2017. "<strong

Listed as a safety and sometimes as a cornerback, Carey’s main contributions come on special teams as a gunner. Thanks in part to Carey, Sam Martin currently leads the league with a 45.4 yard net average. This year, the 29-year-old has a team-high seven special teams tackles.

Overall, the Lions have made special teams a priority this year. In the offseason, they added special teams ace Johnson Bademosi and their September extension of Sam Martin made him one of the highest-paid punters in the NFL.
