The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with former Houston Texans punter Matt Turk, according to his agent David Canter. The Jaguars lost Adam Podlesh in free agency when the Chicago Bears handed him a 5-year, $10 million contract. This left the Jaguars in a spot to go looking for a punter. Currently, the only punter on the Jaguars roster was undrafted free agent Brian Saunders.

I'm not sure if Turk will be the Jaguars punter in 2011, but he will at least offer competition in camp. Matt Turk has bounce around the league since 1995, playing with the Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, and Washington Redskins. Last year with the Texans, Turk had a 42.1 (36.8 net) average with 19 punts downed inside the 20 yard line.

Plus, he wears a single bar helmet. Who doesn't love a kicker who wears a single bar? Everyone does. Everyone.
