In a surprising move, the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to part ways with nickel CB Drew Coleman. In 2011, he signed a 3 year contract worth $7.4 million. Coleman played pretty well at the nickel position, laying the wood on anyone that dared to cross his path, but as many seemed to notice, that was the only spot that the team trusted him to play. After a swath of injuries swept the defensive backfield, the Jaguars would continue to sign players off of the street and they would leave him covering the slot. After the Jaguars picked up Aaron Ross and drafted Mike Harris, his $1.75 million salary probably made him expendable. Now, one has to wonder who will start at te nickel spot? William Middleton, Aaron Ross, or Mike Harris.Tags: Aaron Ross, Drew Coleman, Football, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Jaguars, Mike Harris, NFL, William Middleton
