The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Tashaun Gipson , the Florida Times-Union reports.
Gipson, who turns 26 in August, will bolster the Jaguars' free safety position, an area that the team has been trying to beef up. He's coming off a 2015 season in which he notched 60 tackles in two picks in 13 games, though in 2014 Gipson's ball-hawking skills were evident, as he picked off six passes in 11 games for the Browns.
Tashaun Gipson , who recorded three solo tackles in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, finished the season with 60 combined tackles (42) solo) and two interceptions.
Gipson led the team in interceptions a season ago, but opposing quarterbacks were a bit more careful with him in 2015. Furthermore, he missed three straight games in the first half of the season to an ankle injury. One bright spot on Gipson's season is the fact he was able to surpass his 2014 tackle total (52), but the lack of turnovers left fantasy owners with much to be desired. He's worth a flier in IDP drafts next season, with prospective owners banking on the fact he'll be able to get his turnover total back up in 2016.
Tashaun Gipson (illness) is active Sunday against the Steelers.
Just as Gipson started to get over an ankle injury that plagued him for most of the early part of the season, he came down with an illness that put his Week 10 status in jeopardy. It looks like he's healthy enough, though, and will suit up and start alongside Jordan Poyer, who gets the start in place of Donte Whitner (concussion).
Tashaun Gipson (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Gipson can't catch a break this season. He has played the past two weeks under questionable status due to ankle injury that kept him on the sideline from Week 5 until Week 8. It seems like he finally is fully recovered from the injury and now has come down with a illness that could jeopardize his availability this Sunday. If he isn't able to go, look for Jordan Poyer to once again start in his place.
Tashaun Gipson (ankle) is active for Thursday's game in Cincinnati.
Gipson returned from a three-game absence for Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, immediately stepping back in as an every-down player and grabbing his second interception of the year. He's usually good for about five tackles per game, with few players offering similar upside in terms of turnovers.
