Detroit's 'naked assistant' to join Jags?

By Paul Kuharsky

Joe Cullen’s background is as a defensive line coach.

Jack Del Rio has a defensive line coach in Ted Monachino.

So it’s unclear just what is unfolding on Del Rio’s staff. But Cullen looks like he’s in line to join Jacksonville.

And before the punch lines start flying, the Jaguars did their due diligence on the former Lions assistant who once drove through a suburban Detroit Wendy’s naked -- a scene later revisited through a Jon Kitna Halloween costume.

Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote Wayne Weaver a letter saying Cullen has redeemed himself. This news story will cover that for you.

Perhaps JDR is looking to double up. Pass rush is the Jaguars biggest issue, at least on defense.
