If Tampa were unable to clear up enough cap space to make a move for Mathieu or another one of the big named safeties, Gipson would be a quality player for a team on a budget to pursue. He has 32.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries, including 18 sacks and four forced fumbles in three seasons with the Jaguars.

Gipson signed a five-year, $36 million deal that included $12 million guaranteed. Given their histories, both players should get some attention on the free-agent market.

Gipson has started every game since joining the Jaguars and has six interceptions and 16 pass breakups in 48 games.

The 32-year-old Parnell was entering the final year of his contract and was due a $1 million roster bonus on March 17. Gipson is 28 and hasn't missed a game since October 2015.

Parnell missed three games because of injuries in each of the last two seasons, and the Jaguars believe they can get equal or better production for less money.

Gipson, who signed with the Jaguars in the 2016 offseason as an unrestricted free agent from Cleveland, started all 48 games with the Jaguars and helped the Jaguars rank second in the National Football League in passing defense each of the past two seasons. And that's necessary for a team with little cap space and plenty of holes to fill. The deal included $15.5 million guaranteed. He's now coming off a knee injury that ended his 2018 season and it appears the Jags will be using the newly signed Matt Overton in his place. Denver could certainly use more depth on the defensive line but it remains to be seen if the Broncos will have any interest in bringing Jackson back. But Jackson played just 61.4 percent of the Jaguars' defensive snaps in 2018 and fewer than 30 snaps in each of Jacksonville's final three games.

The Jags likely will address the position in free agency or the draft, or maybe both. Hyde, who the team traded for previous year, was brought in to help T.J. Yeldon carry the load after Leonard Fournette was injured. He became expendable in Cleveland when rookie Nick Chubb started looking like a second-round steal. He was due to have $2 million of his $3.25 million base salary guaranteed, as well as receive a $1 million roster bonus if he was still with the Jaguars on March 15.
