He completely shut down his side of the field for the enemy offense and even if they caught the ball they regretted it!! Look at the damage done to the Jags when he was injured and could not defend his turf. These young players had better be mean as hell to replace him!!(A really fine individual off the field, too!) Hope he McCardell's 'em and gets on somewhere to get a Super Bowl ring!

He will be the next Super Bowl Champ! Del Rio needs to stop worring so much about the Defence and consintrate on the Offence. If we don't make it to the play offs he may be the next in the unemployment line. Decisions like this, explains why we can't fill the stadium as well as Altel removing their name. Releasing all of the great players, maybe we should release everybody and have the U.F players play for the jags. At least this way, we'll have a shot at the playoffs.

How do you franchise a guy one year, only to release him outright the next?

You really think Nelson is that good? I think he's a good player...AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL. Granted, we haven't seen him in a professional game, but I promise he won't hit like DD could hit. He'd break in half!

Unless Darius was smart and ASKED for the release (to get on a team that is actually doing something to win a championship instead of a team attempting to stay medicore at best), I'm considering this just a plain old dumb ass move.

You don't think you could have at least gotten a trade for him? And don't tell me that you didn't think the guy had tallent...YOU FRANCHISED HIM! Geez man...what the hell...

For the player that he was (is), and the man he was (is) off the field, they need to retire this dude's number.

Good luck to you DD...I hope that you get the chance to plant Leftwich this season...I will laugh and laugh and laugh and....

I support the Jaguars, but this has got to be the stupidest thing they have ever done. Offenes fear this man, and now you're going to put a rookie in his place. Whatever team Double D go to, I'm going for them.

What's that tell you about the jag's management? A franchised player released, dumb as dumb can be.But the Jags will start a player that can't scamble to save his life, rocket of an arm. Leftwich will get hurt this season and Gerard will have to clean up the mess as usual. Shold have stared Gerard. and applied the energy to building the offence line. We need wide receivers that can actually catch the ball and put points on the board. WHAT A CONCEPT HUH?

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

That sucks!

The team is letting go of a real defensive leader. If nothing else, he had a ton of knowledge to pass on.

What!? and we kept a running back that has been hurt and unable to play for how long? Bad decision. But no doubt he will be picked up quick.

I think Darius should been able to redeem himself after coming off an injury pledge season. If we (Jaguars) are tring to make an run at a championship now, we need the experience in the secondary.

You've got to be joking!!! Franchise a guy for three years or however long, draft a rookie safety, and release the Free Safety. Everyone in the Jaguars front office needs a urine test.
