AP source: Jaguars bringing back free agent CB Don Carey, who spent the last 7 years with the Lions. Should help special teams— Mark Long (@APMarkLong) March 14, 2018
Carey, 31, has been a staple of the Detroit Lions special teams units for the last seven seasons. His skills as a gunner and on kickoff coverage has helped make Detroit’s coverage teams one of the best in the NFL.
He joins a Jaguars team that actually helped start his career. After being drafted in the sixth-round by the Browns in 2009, the Jaguars picked him up off waivers. The following year, he started 10 games for the Jaguars at safety, picking up 55 tackles and an interception. The Jaguars are also signing Lions cornerback DJ Hayden to a three-year deal.
We wish Don Carey the best of luck in Jacksonville and thank him for seven years in Detroit!
