Odrick (shoulder) has drawn interest from the Giants, Seahawks and Eagles, ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan reports.
Odrick was released by the Jaguars in February after completing just two seasons of a five-year, $42.5 million contract -- a deal that was widely viewed as an overpay at the time. Coming off a season in which he was limited to one sack and 12 tackles in six games while dealing with shoulder, triceps, quad and ankle injuries, the 29-year-old defensive tackle will have to settle for a much smaller contract in his second crack at free agency. He did have 4.5 or more sacks in four of five seasons from 2011 to 2015, playing all 16 games in each of those years. Odrick would make sense as a discount/fallback option for a Giants defense that recently lost DT Jonathan Hankins to the Colts. Seattle could also use interior line help, whereas Philadelphia seems to have addressed that area by trading for Timmy Jernigan to join Fletcher Cox. Odrick should have time to work his way back to full strength before training camp.
Odrick signed a five-year, $42.5 million deal with Jacksonville in 2015, and although he went on to lead the Jags with 5.5 sacks that year, he missed 10 games this past season due to a shoulder injury, limiting him to merely 12 tackles and one sack. In cutting the 29-year-old, who will become a free agent upon his release, Jacksonville is set to save $8.5 million in cap room.
Odrick (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jacksonville.com reports.
Odrick has dealt with a rash of ailments in 2016, the latest being a shoulder injury suffered in Week 11 against Detroit. He also dealt with triceps, quadriceps and ankle issues. Ultimately, the former first-round defensive end -- and third-most expensive player on the team this season -- managed just 12 tackles across six games. The Jaguars could save $8.5 million by cutting him in the offseason.
Odrick (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Vikings.
Odrick will miss his third consecutive game, while Tyson Alualu figures to draw the start at defensive end opposite Dante Fowler.
Odrick (shoulder) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Odrick has missed back-to-back games due to the shoulder injury, and may be in line for another week on the sideline if he's unable return to practice later this week. In such a case, Alualu would be in line to start at defensive end.
