Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks (ACL) is optimistic he'll be ready for the season opener September 13 against Carolina.

"I think we're coming along with it," said Marks at his youth camp earlier this week. "I’m going to be pretty ready for it." Marks is six months removed from surgery. He finished with PFF's ninth-highest pass rushing grade among defensive tackles last season. With Dante Fowler done for the year, getting Marks ready for Week 1 will be a top priority for Jacksonville.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco said Week 1 "may not be realistic" for DT Sen'Derrick Marks (ACL surgery).

Marks would like to return for Week 1, but he will only be nine months removed from a torn ACL when the season beings. The Jags would like to take it slow with Marks, but the season-ending knee injury to Dante Fowler leaves Jacksonville short on pass rushers. Marks posted a career-high 8.5 sacks last season.

Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks (knee) said his target date for return is Week 1.

Marks tore his ACL in Week 17. The season opener would be the tail end of his 6-9 month recovery timetable, but expect the Jaguars to bring Marks along slowly as he's been their best defensive lineman the past two seasons. He's unlikely to play at all during the preseason and may miss most of training camp.
Apr 22 - 1:03 PM

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said DT Sen'Derrick Marks (knee) is "on track" with his recovery from ACL surgery.

Marks tore his ACL in Week 17 and has a 6-9 month timetable. He'll need to avoid setbacks to be ready for the start of training camp. Marks is coming off a breakout 2014, posting a career-high 44 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and 10 TFLs.

Jaguars DT Sen'Derrick Marks tore his ACL in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Texans.

Marks was one of the Jaguars' true bright spots on defense this season, compiling 44 tackles, 8.5 sacks, three batted passes and 10 tackles for a loss while playing in all 16 games for the second straight year. He was PFF's No. 17 defensive tackle among 81 qualifiers. Now Marks, heading into the third year of a five-year contract, has a 6-9 month rehab timetable in front of him.

The Jaguars want to reduce DT Sen'Derrick Marks' snaps in an effort to keep him fresh.

Marks played 83 percent of the defensive snaps in 2013 and had an outstanding season that netted him a four-year, $22 million extension. He started all 16 games for the first time in his career and registered 34 tackles and career-highs in sacks (4), pass breakups (8), and forced fumbles (2). As the three-technique, he concentrates on penetrating gaps and getting to the quarterback for the Jags.

Jaguars signed DT Sen'Derrick Marks to a four-year, $22 million extension through 2017.

Marks inked a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Jaguars in April after spending four seasons with the Titans. He's started all 15 games and registered a career-best four sacks, eight pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. In terms of pass rushing, Marks is a top-six defensive tackle at Pro Football Focus. His new $5.5 million annual average puts him in the top-13 highest-paid defensive tackles in the league. Marks will turn 27 years old in February. It's a sensible deal for the Jaguars, locking up Marks at a reasonable price just as he's peaking in his career. The new Jacksonville regime under GM Dave Caldwell is off to a largely impressive start.

Jaguars agreed to terms with DT Sen'Derrick Marks, formerly of the Titans, on a one-year contract.

Pumped up endlessly by his agent, Marks comes off the market 21 days into free agency. Assuming Marks' price is in line with how long he wallowed without a deal, it's a nice signing for a Jags team that's extremely thin at defensive tackle. Marks graded out as one of the league's worst defensive tackles in Pro Football Focus' ratings last season, but is still only 26. He'll play somewhere in the neighborhood of 600-700 snaps for the Jags. The Jags are trying to shore up a run defense that allowed 141 yards per game in 2012, but Marks has never been particularly adept as either a rusher or run-stopper.

The Jaguars are hosting DT Sen'Derrick Marks for a free-agent visit on Monday.

Tyson Alualu is Jacksonville's only defensive tackle who's made an NFL start. Marks is 26 years old and was the 62nd overall pick in the 2009 draft. The Jags would probably consider Marks if he's willing to sign for dirt cheap.

Free agent DT Sen'Derrick Marks' rep insists his client is receiving "plenty" of interest, but doesn't expect a new deal with the Titans.

Marks hasn't been publicly linked to any teams since the start of free agency, but is supposedly "entertaining offers from other teams, long and short term." Marks' rep said the Titans don't have "any interest" in a short-term deal. That would suggest they're only interested in bringing him back if the bulk of the cap charge can be offloaded to future seasons. Marks is going to get role-player money.

The New York Daily News is "told" that one of the teams interested in free agent DT Sen'Derrick Marks is the Giants.

Marks, 26, is an undersized gap shooter at 6-foot-2, 294. The Giants are always looking to compile talented defensive linemen, and we don't anticipate Marks' price tag being especially high despite a healthy amount of free-agent buzz.

The Nashville Tennessean reports "five teams" have shown interest in free agent DT Sen'Derrick Marks.

None of the teams that are interested are known, but Marks' agent is doing a great job of drumming up interest. He's been gaining plenty of perceived buzz for the past couple of weeks. The Titans want Marks back, but they're not going to overpay with capable in-house replacements available.

Free agent DT Sen'Derrick Marks will test the open market.

Marks has been generating plenty of buzz since the Combine, and he's expected to be highly sought after for some odd reason. He's never lit up the stat sheet, he isn't overly big, and he has just three career sacks. However, Marks, 26, is still young and, he is a former second-round pick.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 04:05:00 PM

The Titans and free agent DT Sen'Derrick Marks are "still not close" to a long-term deal.

Marks' play has been spotty throughout his career, but he just turned 26 and is coming off a career-high 41 tackles. The former second-round pick out of Auburn is expected to draw "plenty of interest" on the open market after generating "a lot of buzz" at the Combine.
