Former Indianapolis Colt and Iowa Hawkeye safety Bob Sanders will visit former rival Jacksonville in search for a contract, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.

He has only played nine games in three years after he won the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2007, which is the sole reason (not his talent) Indy cut Sanders.

If Jacksonville can keep him healthy then they can essentially sign a Pro Bowler for a scrubs contract.

The reason that he will accept a scrub contract?

1) No one is going to offer him anything more than that (no team is that desperate for a safety).

And, 2) he only has until March 3rd to sign with a team before the CBA runs out, as teams can't sign free agents until a new deal is worked out.

It would be a huge deal if the Jags could steal Sanders from a division rival and make Indy pay every time the Colts come down to Florida.

If the Jags don't snatch him up then someone will. Maybe another division rival, like the Tennessee Titans.
