Odrick signed with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Odrick is expected to sign with the Jaguars once free agency opens Tuesday, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Odrick has also drawn significant free agent interest from the Raiders, but at the moment it appears Jacksonville is his most likely destination. Under new head coach Gus Bradley, the Jaguars' defense drastically improved its pass-rushing ability last season and the addition of Odrick could bolster the unit even more. In the past four seasons, Odrick has recorded 16.5 sacks.

Dolphins DE Jared Odrick is taking snaps at defensive tackle in OTAs.

Odrick is on a positional island after the Dolphins used the No. 3 pick on DE Dion Jordan. He's also a poor fit for Miami's 4-3 defense, and is coming off a rough 2012. Odrick will likely be frequently called on to kick inside on passing downs this season.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald suggests that the Dolphins might place RE Jared Odrick on the trade block.

Odrick was drafted to play "five technique" in a 3-4 defense. The Dolphins are a 4-3 now, and Odrick lacks explosive ability requisite for 4-3 defensive ends. "He's not a fit for the scheme," Salguero writes. Odrick has cheap base salaries through 2014, is only 25 years old, and possesses an ideal skill set for the 3-4. He could likely bring back a second-day draft pick via trade.

The Dolphins will look to Jared Odrick and rookie Olivier Vernon to generate pressure opposite Cameron Wake.

Without a strong pass rush, the Dolphins shaky secondary will get torched this season. Odrick will be a full-time starter for the first time in his pro career. According to Pro Football Focus, he generated 24 QB pressures last season, converting five for sacks. In passing situations, he'll kick to DT with Vernon coming in at DE.

The Dolphins are using Jared Odrick at left defensive end in their new 4-3.

Odrick played right end in the old 3-4. Now a 4-3 team, the Dolphins are trying to get their best four defensive linemen on the field. Odrick figures to play end on all running downs, kicking inside to tackle in passing situations with Olivier Vernon replacing him on the edge. Cameron Wake will be a full-time, every-down right end. The D-Tackles are Paul Soliai and Randy Starks.

Dolphins RE Jared Odrick earned a $1 million contract bonus by playing over 45 percent of the team's defensive snaps in 2011.

Finally healthy after an injury-shortened rookie year, the 2010 first-round pick exploded for six sacks, a forced fumble, and an interception to earn praise from NFL Films guru Greg Cosell for a breakout season. Pro Football Focus graded Odrick as a top-20 3-4 defensive end in 2011. With NT Paul Soliai and LE Kendall Langford both unsigned for 2012, Odrick is the Dolphins' primary building block on the defensive line going forward.
