With Terrance Knighton departing for Denver, and the Jaguars releasing C.J. Mosley on Monday, Jacksonville is precariously thin at defensive tackle. Tyson Alualu is currently the only Jaguars defensive tackle with NFL starting experience. The 26-year-old Marks started 26 games during four seasons with Tennessee. Marks' agent said the former second round pick has received "plenty of interest" in the free agent market, although Jacksonville will be his first reported free agent visit.
In Jacksonville, Marks could potentially fill the role of the three-technique defensive tackle. The Jaguars have also been linked to free agent Alan Branch, who played the three-technique spot in Seattle the previous two seasons. Unlike Branch, Marks does not have a connection to new Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.
If Marks and the Jaguars do not agree to a deal, Marks has visits scheduled with two unnamed teams, according to McCormick's report.
