Former Colts DL Ricky Jean-Francois Visiting With 49ers, Redskins, & Seahawks

Update:

Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the Seahawks will also bring in former Colts DL Ricky Jean-Francois for a visit at some point this week.

The Seahawks seem to always be in the market for defensive line upgrades each and every year, so we shouldn’t be surprised to hear that they’re interested in a veteran player who was cut ahead of free agency.

Signing Jean-Francois wouldn’t count against their compensatory picks and he does offer some position versatility, which is one thing the Seahawks value.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the former Colts DL Ricky Jean-Francois will visit with the Redskins and 49ers this week.

Following his release, Rapoport mentioned that Jean-Francois’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, expected his client to have an active market, so it wouldn’t be surprising to hear more teams added to this list.

Jean-Francois, 28, ultimately secured a four-year, $22 million contract that included $5.5 million guaranteed from the Colts, and it’s not as though he was a horrible player last season.

In fact, Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 26 defensive end in a 3-4 system out of 47 qualifying players.

Last year, Jean-Francois appeared in all 16 games and recorded 28 tackles, three sacks, a fumble recovery and six pass defenses for the Colts.
