Sean Considine Signs With Jaguars

The only Stateline native to start an NFL game in the last decade will be starting a new chapter in his pro football career. 23 news was the first to tell you that Sean Considine has signed a two year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars
Today is the first day that free agents can sign with another NFL team and Considine met with the Jaguars this morning. 23 news learned that about half a dozen other teams also showed interest, including the New England Patriots, but Considine chose Jacksonville, in part, because they plan on making him a starting safety.
Considine played his first four NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles after being taken with the first pick on the second day of the 2005 NFL draft. He started 17 games with the Eagles and is widely considered one of the best special team players in the league.

    I got the link to this from the Philadelphia Eagles website. Too bad Sean didn't end up back in this area with the Packers (his favorite team growing up) or with the Bears. Were either of these teams in the "interested" group?

    Having gone to Byron High during his first two years there, I will still wear my #37 Considine jersey from the Eagles. At least until I find a Jaguars one. He will be missed on gameday, as we are Eagles fans and I feel that the Eagles made a huge mistake not giving Sean the starting position! Good luck Sean!
