Jaguars signed DT Jared Odrick to a five-year, $42.5 million contract with $22 million guaranteed.
The $8.5 million average makes Odrick the league's fourth-highest paid defensive tackle. Odrick will team with Sen'Derrick Marks and Roy Miller to form an impressive interior rotation. Odrick, 27, is above-average both as a pass rusher and in run defense. It's a huge get for Jacksonville, even it's coming at a steep price. The Jaguars' especially aggressive pursuit of Odrick may hint at Marks (ACL) not being available for Week 1. Mar 11 - 11:05 AM

Jaguars agreed to terms with DL Jared Odrick on a deal worth $7 million per season.

The cap-rich Jaguars add Odrick to a free-agency haul that already includes Julius Thomas and Jermey Parnell. It's an underrated signing, as 27-year-old Odrick can step in as a 307-pound "big" defensive end for Gus Bradley. Odrick will likely play three technique until Sen'Derrick Marks (ACL) returns. Odrick posted 16.5 sacks over the last four years for the Dolphins, showing an ability to push the pocket from the interior while also playing at a plus level against the run.

Free agent DL Jared Odrick is expected to sign with the Jaguars, according to Pro Football Talk.

This comes less than a day after the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Odrick was likely headed to Oakland. A bidding war between the Jags and Raiders was probably inevitable considering how much cap room the teams have at their disposal. The Dolphins closed the door on Odrick's return to Miami Sunday by offering Ndamukong Suh the richest contract ever for a defensive player.
Mar 9 - 10:50 AM

Free agent DL Jared Odrick is reportedly in talks with the Raiders, Jaguars, and Broncos.

A tweet from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Twitter account on Sunday stated "Jared Odrick expected to sign with Oakland," though the story to which that tweet links does not say that. It says Odrick is speaking to these three teams and may command $7 million annually. The story also says "Oakland is believed to be chasing Odrick and Denver’s Terrance Knighton."

Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson reports the Jaguars "are turning their attention" to free agent DT Jared Odrick.

This comes after the Jaguars lost out to the Dolphins for Ndamukong Suh, who will reportedly ink a $114 million deal with Miami on Tuesday. Odrick is in the next tier of free-agent defensive tackles, though he's obviously several notches below Suh talent-wise. Odrick is expected to have plenty of suitors.
Mar 8 - 1:33 PM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker believes Miami will let free agent DT Jared Odrick walk.

This doesn't come as a huge surprise. The two sides haven't engaged in contract talks, and the Dolphins seem poised to make a serious run at free agent Ndamukong Suh. Odrick will still have a healthy market after Suh and Terrance Knighton sign their deals. Odrick could command north of $6 million annually as a scheme-versatile lineman who can play 4-3 defensive tackle or 3-4 end.

According to the Palm Beach Post, there's a "growing belief" free agent DT Jared Odrick will test the open market.

The Dolphins are trying to re-sign Odrick, quite possibly their No. 1 priority in free agency. But as a scheme-versatile 27-year-old that can get after the quarterback from the interior, there's going to be plenty of interest come March. Odrick's market will get even hotter if interior linemen like Ndamukong Suh and Terrance Knighton re-sign with their respective clubs.

Free agent DT Jared Odrick has yet to hear from the Dolphins.

Odrick, 27, started 15-of-16 games this past season, grading out as a top-19 defensive tackle at Pro Football Focus. He received especially strong marks as a pass rusher, although he recorded just one sack. Odrick has 16.5 career sacks and has experience playing 4-3 defensive tackle and 3-4 end.
Feb 15 - 12:36 PM

Dolphins DE Jared Odrick is taking snaps at defensive tackle in OTAs.

Odrick is on a positional island after the Dolphins used the No. 3 pick on DE Dion Jordan. He's also a poor fit for Miami's 4-3 defense, and is coming off a rough 2012. Odrick will likely be frequently called on to kick inside on passing downs this season.

Dolphins RE Jared Odrick filed a lawsuit against financial firm Success Trade over an alleged investment scam.

Yahoo! Sports reported Wednesday that multiple federal agencies including the FBI, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and Department of Justice were probing Success Trade investments. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) has red-flagged Success Trade for selling $18M in fraudulent and unregistered promissory notes to 58 investors, 30 of whom were pro athletes. Among the athletes who purchased Success Trade promissory notes were Browns CB Joe Haden, 49ers TE Vernon Davis, ex-Redskins RB Clinton Portis, and ex-Bears DE Adewale Ogunleye.

Dolphins RE Jared Odrick says he will shed 20 pounds this offseason if he's asked to stay at defensive end.

He's keeping the weight on for now in case DT Randy Starks leaves in free agency and Odrick has to kick inside. We suspect Starks will be tagged if no long-term deal is reached, and Odrick will stay at end regardless. Even at the lesser weight, Odrick is unlikely to suddenly become an explosive pass rusher.
Sat, Feb 23, 2013 10:50:00 PM

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald suggests that the Dolphins might place RE Jared Odrick on the trade block.

Odrick was drafted to play "five technique" in a 3-4 defense. The Dolphins are a 4-3 now, and Odrick lacks explosive ability requisite for 4-3 defensive ends. "He's not a fit for the scheme," Salguero writes. Odrick has cheap base salaries through 2014, is only 25 years old, and possesses an ideal skill set for the 3-4. He could likely bring back a second-day draft pick via trade.

The Dolphins will look to Jared Odrick and rookie Olivier Vernon to generate pressure opposite Cameron Wake.

Without a strong pass rush, the Dolphins shaky secondary will get torched this season. Odrick will be a full-time starter for the first time in his pro career. According to Pro Football Focus, he generated 24 QB pressures last season, converting five for sacks. In passing situations, he'll kick to DT with Vernon coming in at DE.

The Dolphins are using Jared Odrick at left defensive end in their new 4-3.

Odrick played right end in the old 3-4. Now a 4-3 team, the Dolphins are trying to get their best four defensive linemen on the field. Odrick figures to play end on all running downs, kicking inside to tackle in passing situations with rookie Olivier Vernon replacing him on the edge. Cameron Wake will be a full-time, every-down right end. The D-Tackles are Paul Soliai and Randy Starks.

Dolphins RE Jared Odrick earned a $1 million contract bonus by playing over 45 percent of the team's defensive snaps in 2011.

Finally healthy after an injury-shortened rookie year, the 2010 first-round pick exploded for six sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception to earn praise from NFL Films guru Greg Cosell for a breakout season. Pro Football Focus graded Odrick as a top-20 3-4 defensive end in 2011. With NT Paul Soliai and LE Kendall Langford both unsigned for 2012, Odrick is the Dolphins' primary building block on the defensive line going forward.
