Jaguars' A.J. Bouye: Ready to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye (illness) will play Sunday against the Titans.

The fifth-year corner played 79 defensive snaps against the Texans in Week 1, recording six tackles (five solo) and two pass breakups. His ailment kept him out of Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, but he was a full participant Friday.

Jaguars' A.J. Bouye: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers for an undisclosed reason, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

The Jaguars haven't provided much information regarding Bouye's absence, so it's reasonable to assume that he's being given the game off for rest purposes. By all accounts, Bouye is expected to be a key piece of the Jacksonville secondary after signing a five-year, $67.5 million contract in the offseason.

Jaguars' A.J. Bouye: Signs five-year deal with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bouye signed a five-year, $67.5 million contract with the Jaguars on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bouye was one of the highest priority free agent cornerbacks and was certainly paid like it. He had 63 tackles and 16 passes defenses, including an interception, in 15 games in 2016. He'll likely start across from Jalen Ramsey in 2017.

Texans' A.J. Bouye: Unlikely to receive Texans' franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans likely won't use their franchise tag on Bouye, the Houston Chronicle reports.

After ranking in the top 10 in the NFL in terms of passes defended (16) last season, Bouye is a hot commodity as he becomes an unrestricted free agent for the first time. The only organization he's ever known, the Texans, are seemingly hamstrung by the commitments already made to others for 2017, including to fellow cornerbacks Kareem Jackson ($9 million) and Johnathan Joseph ($6.9 million). As a result, the front office likely won't allot more than $14 million in order to keep Bouye in the fold this fall. If the preceding comes to fruition, he should strike it rich on the free-agent market and become another team's No. 1 CB.

Texans' A.J. Bouye: Picks off Brady in Saturday's playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Bouye had five tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in Houston's 34-16 loss to New England in Saturday's AFC divisional-round playoff game.

Bouye was one of the most improved players in the NFL this season and his emergence came at a fortunate time for the cornerback, who enters unrestricted free agency in the offseason. The fourth-year pro, who had picks in each of Houston's postseason games, should command a healthy salary after leading the Texans with 16 passes defensed, tying him for ninth in the NFL. Houston could opt to apply the franchise tag to him, but that would be expensive. The tag for cornerbacks this past season was $13.952 million and will go up next season. If he can't come to terms with Houston, Bouye is sure to land a multi-year deal elsewhere.
