It just means that he's free. So he's able to now sign a multi year deal with the Jags if they meet his demands, rather than being franchised.
We just spent 2 second rounders on EDGES to develop, and Houston is under contract. He would not be a great investment considering how we just invested.
He's been the best corner at the Senior Bowl according to many analysts. I just checked his measurables... he's a bit on the small side and not very long. Still a really good player though. I wonder if we have similar thresholds to Seattle about cornerback length... I really hope he's on our board.
