Jaguars, Dennard part ways after agreeing to 3-year contract

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars and cornerback Darqueze Dennard have parted ways nine days after agreeing to a three-year, $13.5 million contract in free agency. The Jaguars say “the two sides could not come to an agreement on the final contract terms.” Dennard agreed to the deal March 17. That was the night before the official start of the new league year. The contract included $6 million guaranteed. But it never got signed. Now the Jaguars and Dennard are going in different directions. The Jags agreed to sign journeyman cornerback Rashaan Melvin to a one-year, $2.25 million contract Tuesday.
