Jacksonville needed to make room on the roster for their newest addition, OLB Kamalei Correa, after his trade acquisition from the Titans. Marsh was the logical candidate given Correa likely replaces him.
Marsh, 28, is a former fourth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Seahawks traded Marsh to the Patriots for fifth- and seventh-round picks in 2017 but he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the 49ers.
Marsh played out the final year of his rookie contract before returning to the 49ers on a two-year deal worth a base value of $7.7 million. San Francisco cut him loose last March and he signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks.
After being among Seattle’s final roster cuts, Marsh caught on with the Cardinals and finished out the year in Arizona. He signed with the Jaguars as a free agent this offseason.
In 2020, Marsh appeared in four games for the Jaguars and recorded nine total tackles.
