Texans reportedly sign ex-Jaguars CB Shaquill Griffin to 1-year deal

Former Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who was released by the team earlier this year, will stay in the AFC South after joining the Houston Texans on a one-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Griffin, 27, began his career with the Seattle Seahawks and earned Pro Bowl honors in 2019. The Jaguars made Griffin their prized addition of the 2021 offseason, signing the cornerback to a three-year, $40 million deal.

After earning a respectable 72.0 grade from Pro Football Focus in his first year in Jacksonville, Griffin struggled in the first month of the 2022 season. He was credited with allowing three touchdowns in five games — including a game-winner against the Indianapolis Colts — before landing on injured reserve with a back injury. Griffin never returned and was released in March to clear more than $13.1 million in salary cap space.

In Houston, Griffin will join a secondary that features 2022 top five draft pick Derek Stingley as well as veterans Steven Nelson and Darius Phillips.
