Former Texans CB A.J. Bouye signs with Jags

Jaguars Free Agency Day 1 Recap: Mike Kaye breaks down the moves

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars have found Jalen Ramsey's tag team partner in the secondary.

On Thursday, former Houston Texans cornerback A.J. Bouye agreed to a deal with the Jaguars, according to a league source.

The deal is for five years and $67.5 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He will receive $26 million in guaranteed money.

Bouye (6-0, 191 lbs.) entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He spent the last four years working his way up the Texans' depth chart. He became a full-time starter with the team last season.

In four seasons with the Texans, Bouye produced 140 tackles, 32 pass breakups and six interceptions.

He will now fill the role left open by cornerback Prince Amukamara.

The Jaguars also released/traded former starting cornerback Davon House this week.

Bouye will join Ramsey and Aaron Colvin as the Jaguars' trio of starting cornerbacks. Colvin will man the middle, while Bouye and Ramsey look to shut down wide receivers on the outside.

Bouye was a college teammate of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles at the University of Central Florida. The 25-year-old actually intercepted a pass by Bortles in a 2014 matchup between the Texans and Jaguars.

Pro Football Focus ranked Bouye as the third best cornerback in the league last season.
