Rashean Mathis Re-Signs With Jaguars For One Year, $5 Million

Unrestricted free agent Rashean Mathis was going to be one of the Jacksonville Jaguars' biggest losses this offseason if he opted to test the free agent waters, but he's decided to return to the team where he's spent the entirety of his professional career. Adam Schefter dropped the news on twitter.

Mathis was an All-Pro selection in 2006 and was one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL during his younger years, but his play dipped a bit in the couple of years prior to the 2011 season. Mathis got off to a brilliant start this past year, but tore his ACL mid-season and missed the final seven games of the year.

Because Mathis is 31-years-old and coming off of a major injury, he was always unlikely to command serious interest in a long-term contract from anyone. If he returns to full health before training camp, he should be a starter for the Jaguars in 2012.
