Jacksonville Getting a Visit from Former Colts Safety Bob Sanders

Over the years the Jaguars had seen quite a bit of former Colts safety and former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Bob Sanders. Now they are talking to him about the possibility of coming to help out beat his former team.

According to NFL Network, Sanders is in Jacksonville for his first free agent visit. He has been rumored to be drawing interest from a couple AFC South teams, including the Jags and Titans.
