Jags get LB Winborn from 49ers for draft pick
October 7, 2005

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired linebacker Jamie Winborn from the San Francisco 49ers on Friday in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

Winborn started two of the 49ers' three games this season and had 13 tackles and a pass deflection. Last week, Winborn cleaned out his locker and left the team after coach Mike Nolan abruptly announced plans to trade him. Winborn had lost his job to converted defensive end Andre Carter.

In four-plus years with San Francisco, Winborn had 156 tackles, nine sacks and three interceptions.

The Jaguars released defensive tackle Martin Chase to make room for Winborn.

``It was an opportunity to acquire a linebacker who's a good player and fits our system,'' Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. ``It wasn't anything that was too costly or too difficult to pull off.''

Del Rio wouldn't commit to Winborn becoming a starter when he begins workouts with the Jaguars next week, but said he would get a spot with the club's special teams.

``We see him as a guy who's played well, has started, so he has experience, has speed and can help us on (special) teams,'' Del Rio said. ``We'll let him grow

I still don't know what fell out between he and Nolan but good pickup by the Jags. Hate to see him go.

Something about "pass deflection" just made me laugh.
