The Jacksonville Jaguars were already earning the name “Sacksonville” for leading the league in sacks and now they’ve reportedly added another guy to help along the defensive line.
And apparently the Bills had been trying to get rid of him for some time:
Dareus only has one sack on the year so far, but his 6-foot-3, 300-plus pound frame will help that line get even more free as he will probably occupy two blockers. He was a Pro Bowler twice and has 35 sacks in his career to go with 205 tackles. The Jags gave up an asset they can live without and they don’t necessarily need Dareus to perform at a high level so it’s a low-risk move for them as well.
The former Alabama standout has been with the Bills his entire career when he was drafted No. 3 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. His two best years were his Pro Bowl seasons in 2013 and 2014 when he recorded 7.5 and 10 sacks, respectively those seasons.
