Jaguars Re-Sign Cornerback Rashean Mathis To One-Year Contract

Thursday March 8th, 2012

Cornerback Rashean Mathis will remain with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the Associated Press. Mathis has agreed to an incentive-laden one-year contract with the Jags, possibly worth up to $5 million.

Mathis has spent his entire nine-year pro career with the Jaguars. He was a second-round draft pick out of Bethune-Cookman University in 2003.

Mathis, who turns 32 in August, missed the last seven games of the 2011 season with a torn ACL in his left knee. He also missed six games in 2009 and four games in 2008. The veteran corner has 538 tackles and a Jaguars franchise record of 30 interceptions in 125 career games.
