Jaguars Agree to Terms with Northcutt
 
http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-onlin...orthcutt.shtml

The Jaguars said early in free-agency that they were searching for a veteran free-agent wide-receiver with the ability to stretch the seam from the slot. Northcutt fits the description. He also brings reliably good punt return skills into the fold, something the team currently doesn't have.

Thoughts?

I guess this means no Moss

Meh. Nothing exciting.

Return game?

Didn't Drew do well in that role?

KICK Return

As a Browns fan I am happy to see Northcutt get paid. He is a good PR and runs the reverse pretty well he just needs some help with bring the ball in as a WR. Best of luck Dennis.

TheChampIsHere 03-03-2007 06:56 PM

perfect signing for the Jags. They needed a slot receiver with speed and return skills.

Green Bay Scat 03-03-2007 06:59 PM

looks like teddy will be slipping past them. Dennis will fit perfectly with the Jags, and could be a KR if need be if MJD gets more carries

The Unseen 03-03-2007 07:00 PM

It's an okay signing. I don't dislike it, but it's nothing special.

jriles0522 03-03-2007 07:00 PM

Northcutt sucks. He's an above average punt returner but for some reason those hands don't translate onto the field. My anxiety and frustration levels watching the Browns will now decrease because I do not have to watch him drop any more wide open passes.

Good luck with him though.

Ya he will be your #3 or 4 WR. You basically signed a guy that will give you 10-12 yards per return on punt team.

or a touchdown?

Northcutt is a great punt returner.......but a sorry receiver. He might be okay in the slot for a team with a good QB.

49erfaithful 03-03-2007 07:21 PM

So how does this affect the draft for them

Not much. The team has already stated that they won't pursue a wide-receiver in the first round, and that won't change.

But if a guy like Jason Hill is available in the 2nd and he's the best available player, they'd probably take him.

Go_Eagles77 03-03-2007 07:42 PM

One less possible destination for Stallworth. :)

Eaglez.Fan 03-03-2007 07:50 PM

Northcutt isn't really that good. He's a good KR, but below average at WR. IMO this won't effect much, maybe just there need at KR

You mean PR, but I kind of agree. I hope the front office and coaching staff sees something that we don't, but he does not have a good history as a receiver.

ninerfan 03-03-2007 07:54 PM

Ouch that seems alot of $$$. I couldnt see him starting a bidding war or anything

JT Jag 03-03-2007 07:57 PM

I'm guessing Joe DeCamillis, our ST Coordinator, was the one who pushed for this signing the most.

Combined with Northcutt being on the "short list" of free-agent wide receivers that Dirk Koetter assembled, imploring them to bring in at least one of them, he was a likely and logical signing. Office politics. He'll be a good returner for the team in the long-term and a good slot guy in the short-term.

All I can say is that you Jaguars fans better hope he only returns punts. Otherwise you're going to be VERY frustrated when he starts dropping half the passes thrown his way.

You admit to being a Browns fan......why? Just kidding, it is good to see him get paid and maybe he'll be involved more so on the offensive side of the ball.

I haven't seen him play much, so I just want to know: How often does he drop passes that hit him squarely on his hands after a good pass?

Or his he the sort of person that you most of the time end up finding yourself saying "Jeez... if you get your hand on it, you SHOULD be able to bring it in", after passes that he really has to work for?
