Call them the Jacksonville B-Hawks.
A few short days after signing recently-released defensive end Red Bryant, the Jacksonville Jaguars have apparently been working to acquire cornerback Walter Thurmond III. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the news on twitter that Thurmond would be visiting the Jags camp:
Seahawks free-agent CB Walter Thurmond is visiting the Jaguars in next 24 hours, per sources.

No official signing has been reported as of yet but the appeal for Thurmond is obvious. As I wrote when they signed Bryant, the Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradley was the Seahawks defensive coordinator for several years and will be looking to add players familiar with his system. That could mean that even more Seahawks will be heading to Florida soon.
Jacksonville has also signed offensive guard Zane Beadles, who played for the Denver Broncos in the Super bowl. I can’t recall who won that game. Can anybody help me out?
