JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are shuffling their secondary again, creating their 13th starting combination in the last 23 games.
The latest one, which has Dwight Lowery replacing Courtney Greene at free safety, might just settle the defensive backfield.
Jacksonville believes Lowery could be the final piece to solidifying what was one of the worst defenses in the league last season. The Jaguars used five different safeties in 2010 — Gerald Alexander, Don Carey, Sean Considine, Greene and Anthony Smith — and couldn’t find success with any combination.
They signed free agent Dawan Landry and acquired Lowery in a trade with the New York Jets a week before the opener. Both could be tested at Carolina, which leads the NFL with 16 pass plays of at least 20 yards.
