Former Clemson safety Jonathan Meeks had a workout with the Jacksonville Jaguars last week according to multiple reports.

Meeks could add depth at the safety position and help out on special teams.

The former Clemson defensive back had 16 tackles, a pass deflection, and a fumble recovery last season with the Bills. In 2015, he had 13 tackles and forced two fumbles.

In 2014, Meeks spent the entire season on the injured reserve with a neck injury. His rookie season with the Bills, he had two tackles after being a fifth-round draft pick (#143 overall) by the Bills in 2013. An interesting tidbit is that Meeks played in 38 total games for Buffalo but never started a single game.

For his Clemson career, he had 157 tackles, two tackles for loss, seven interceptions for 192 yards, four quarterback pressures, 13 pass breakups, and two recovered fumbles in 1,889 snaps over 50 games (24 starts) in his career. He is fifth in school history in interception return yards and fifth in takeaway return yards (195).
