It took just two days following his release from the Jaguars for Cole to find a new home in New Orleans. There's still a good chance he'll find himself on the outside looking in at final cuts, but it's a good opportunity for him to showcase his abilities for the time being.
Cole was released by the Jaguars on Saturday, John Reid of the Florida Times Union reports.
Cole inked a deal with the Jaguars in March to serve as a reserve linebacker for the club, but it appears his time in Jacksonville has run out. A four-year veteran, it wouldn't be surprising if he pops up on another roster.
The exact terms of the deal remain a bit unclear, but the sixth-year linebacker will provide the Jaguars with some depth at the middle linebacker position behind veteran Paul Posluszny. It's unlikely he will produce enough to be worthy of ownership in IDP leagues, with the majority of his snaps likely coming on special teams.
Cole will start at middle linebacker Sunday against Detroit with Eric Kendricks inactive due to a concussion.
Cole will not see the bulk of snaps however, as Chad Greenway will likely stay on the field in nickel and dime situations with Cole sitting out. Cole may not be an ideal IDP replacement for Kendricks as a result.
