Roman Harper and Eric Weddle Two Possible Free Agent Options for the Jaguars

With the NFL lock out still raging along, here are some possibilities for the Jaguars as far as free agency goes once the lock out ends. Names have been thrown around as possible help for the team at the safety position.

The two highest profile of these names are Eric Weddle and Roman Harper. Both of these players have tremendous upside and are both good enough to have a solid impact on the team. Now the last anyone saw of Roman Harper on the field the Seattle Seahawks were making him look like a fool and burning him all day.

Harper may not be the greatest as far as coverage but he is a solid tackler and can make big plays as he forced 6 fumbles and had one interception last season. Harper also had 98 total tackles last season. Harper has the talent to really help the Jags and will be looking to show that what we last saw of him was a fluke and not what kind of player he is.

The second of these two men is Eric Weddle who has spent his first four seasons with the San Diego Chargers. Weddle is a hard hitter but did not make many turnovers last season as he only had 2 interceptions and only has six for his career. Now while the Jags have serious hopes of possibly getting Weddle there may be a reluctance to leave the San Diego area as he is from Fontana, California.
