CB - FA
CB Darqueze Dennard and the Jaguars were unable to come to an agreement on final terms on original three-year, $13.5M deal, making him a free agent once again.
Dennard is back on the open market after his representation and the Jaguars couldn’t come to final terms on the contract. After spending six seasons in Cincinnati, Dennard finds himself as a free agent once again. The Jaguars were in desperate need of a corner after trading away both Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye in the last six months, but it looks like Dennard will not being filling in that hole for Jacksonville this season.
Former Cincinnati CB Darqueze Dennard agrees to a one-year deal with the Jaguars.
The former 2014 first-round pick out of Michigan State has played all six seasons in the NFL with Cincinnati, but he’ll be moving on to Jacksonville to bolster up their secondary in 2020.
Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs.
Dennard missed the week of practice with a shoulder injury he suffered in last Sunday’s loss to the Steelers. It’s unclear if he will be sidelined beyond Week 7.
According to Coley Harvey, the Bengals first round pick has been impressive while filling in for veteran CBs during their off days as well as participating on Special Teams.
The CB position in IDP is one of the hardest to project. I've always been one to watch rookie CBs mostly because QBs like to pick on them, which means more opportunity for IDP points. See 2011 Patrick Peterson. I'm not saying Dennard is the next Peterson, but given the lack of youth at CB with the Bengals he is likely to get some playing time this year and definitely in years to come. If you have an IDP keeper or dynasty league this is a player to keep an eye on.
