JACKSONVILLE, Florida (Ticker) - The Jacksonville Jaguars addressed a pressing need Wednesday, signing free agent defensive end Reggie Hayward.

Terms were not disclosed, but the team will hold a news conference Thursday morning to introduce its new pass rusher.

Hayward, 25, led Denver with 10 1/2 sacks last season, when he started 15 games - including the Broncos' AFC wild card loss at Indianapolis. He recorded 60 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery while forcing one fumble.

A third-round pick in 2001 out of Iowa State, Hayward also had one sack and two tackles in the postseason loss to the Colts.

In 47 career games with the Broncos, Hayward registered 22 sacks and 75 tackles.

Last season, the Jaguars were led in sacks by defensive end Greg Favors and defensive tackle John Henderson, who recorded 5 1/2 apiece.

Jacksonville also signed defensive tackle Martin Chase, a seven-year veteran who missed the entire 2004 season with the New York Giants due to a knee injury. Chase appeared in 13 games with Washington 2003, recording 12 tackles

Exactly. Hayward's contract demands wouldn't have allowed to make any moves this off-season.

at the bottom it says that we are going to the 3-4 and hayward does not play there

losing him is no big deal as shanny said if he stayed he would be a pass rushing LB (like gold can now do)

I agree that we should not have matched an offer. Even if (when) TP is gone, it is better to get all around better with four or five decent players. We have a cap problem. :sad:

He wasn't worth the money. At least not to us. Hopefully well get another DE

Hayward might lead the AFC in sacks next year. Henderson and Stroud are monsters and will give him tons of one on one opportunities. It's a safe bet that he'll be top 3 in the AFC in sacks. I hate to say it, but the Broncos roster does not look like an elite group right now. With the toughness of our schedule, I think we'll be lucky to go 10-6.

Also, the Broncos keep talking about improving our pass rush, yet we let our best pass rusher leave and are talking about letting go Pryce. I don't see where we are going to improve our D-line. Right now it's getting worse.

i think shanny was making excuses when he talked bout hayward being a lb. Cause the guy defdinitely is a good pass rusher. We couldnt afford him. but dont talk that junk bout him being a line backer.

Eh, we have Warren? We still have the draft and FA. FA probably isn't offering many good free agents.

This 3-4 idea better be pretty f*****g good!! We are watching other teams build a D-Line, which is our biggest need. I just hope that they are more successful with the 3-4 than I think they will be.

considering its basically worth 7 million a year.. I'm DEFINATLY happy that we did not sign Hayward to a contract. (25 million divided by 5, the 10 million up front divided by 5)

the way nfl contracts are structured, it's more like 10 million bonus followed by 4 years of minimum salary and then a balloon payment the last year. i bet his cap number is only around 2.5-3.0 for this year.

also, anyone notice that this has come full circle sort of?

the donks take out paul spicer for the rest of the year, and the jags "replace" spicer with hayward.

Good riddance Reggie, you were a 1 dimensional DE who was not worth half of what your agent was looking for. Thanks for the good season in Denver though. :cheers:

Heywards a sell out just like the old number #26. Coward.

actually the contract is frontloaded...he's gonna count almost $8 million against the cap this year making the rest of the contract very cap-friendly

NFL players don't know what will happen from game to game, season to season. You can have a carreer ending injury before you ever make the big bucks, or you can be a bust and get cut. Reggie had a hell of a year and is peaking at the right time. I hate to see him go, especially to the jags but that's the business. I was more upset when we let Berry go the year before.

Sacks & pass rushing is great, but where I would really like to see the improvment is in our turnovers... last few years we have been way below the league average despite our pass rush in defensive ints.

You're kidding, right? A free market is not allowed ofor NFL Players?

What, he is supposed to be loyal? Teams aren't loyal to players. Why should the converse be true.

I mean, yeah, it suck that Denver couldn't afford to keep him, but that's the way the free agent system is set up.
If he REALLY wanted to be with one team his whole career, he could have just offered to sign a contract with a small signing bonus and the minimun salary level with no incentives.....


as if THAT would ever happen!

Yeah but we need good D-linemen to create turnovers. Maybe we should have resigned Reggie instead of Gold.
