Jaguars claimed CB Jamell Fleming off waivers from the Cardinals.
The 2012 third-round pick got crowded out of new GM Rod Graves' secondary in Arizona, but was known as a press corner coming out of Oklahoma, and is a fit for Gus Bradley's scheme. With the Jags low on healthy corners, Fleming is likely being claimed as more than a rental, and could see immediate playing time.

Cardinals released CB Jamell Fleming.
A 2012 third-round pick, Fleming was a holdover from former GM Rod Graves and entered the season no higher than the Cardinals' No. 5 corner. He started three games last year and could draw some interest on waivers. The Bills and Jets are potential landing spots.

The Cardinals' website hints 2012 third-round pick Jamell Fleming isn't a lock for a 2013 roster spot.
Cornerback is suddenly crowded in Arizona with Patrick Peterson, Jerraud Powers, Antoine Cason, and Javier Arenas all ahead of old-regime holdover Fleming, and rookie FS Tyrann Mathieu also capable of playing or perhaps even starting at slot corner. Fleming was a major disappointment as a rookie, and the track record of ex-Oklahoma Sooner defensive backs has been unkind in the NFL.

Cardinals CB Jamell Fleming (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's night game against the 49ers.
Fleming practiced on a limited basis Saturday, but there's been no indication that he won't be available. With Greg Toler (doubtful, hamstring) not expected to play, the Cardinals will enter Monday with just four active corners on their roster. Michael Adams (hamstring) practiced fully this week and is listed as probable.

Multiple team sources tell Pro Football Weekly that third-round CB Jamell Fleming has been the Cardinals' "most impressive overall performer" this offseason.
PFW "hears" that Greg Toler and William Gay are the likeliest candidates to start opposite Patrick Peterson, but the Cardinals are intrigued by what they think Fleming can do in sub-defenses. Fleming displayed "exceptional quickness" and "change-of-direction skills" during OTAs, and was recently nominated as a "player that stood out" by coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt nominated third-round CB Jamell Fleming as a player who stood out in offseason practices.
"It seems like every day he's made a play on a ball, knocking it down or making an interception," Whisenhunt said last week. "The thing that really jumped off the film to me was his quickness ... his change of direction is really, really outstanding. He's a competitive guy, he's big." Fleming will give veterans William Gay and Greg Toler a run for the starting job opposite Patrick Peterson.

Cardinals signed No. 80 overall pick CB Jamell Fleming to a four-year contract.
Fleming was productive at Oklahoma over the last two seasons, showing power in man-to-man coverage and picking off seven passes. He has an outside shot at the starting corner job opposite Patrick Peterson and a good chance to beat out Greg Toler and A.J. Jefferson for the No. 3 gig.
