Jaguars sign 7, including QB Jordan Palmer
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed seven players, including quarterback Jordan Palmer.
All seven participated in last weekend's rookie camp. Palmer, the younger brother of Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer, spent four seasons with Cincinnati, where he worked with current Jaguars offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski. He will serve as Jacksonville's third-stringer behind starter Blaine Gabbert and backup Chad Henne.
Jacksonville also signed fullback Naufahu Tahi, defensive tackle Odrick Ray, linebacker Donovan Richard, defensive back Jeremiah Brown and receivers Mike Brown and Chris Forcier.
Quarterback Dan LeFevour, safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, defensive end Frank Trotter and receivers Jarett Dillard, Nelson Rosario and Jarrett Boykin were waived. Dillard was the most notable of the group. A fifth-round pick in 2009, Dillard had 35 receptions for 398 yards and a touchdown in three seasons.
