Upon the news of fullback Naufahu Tahi leaving the Jaguars for "personal reasons" and Maurice Jones-Drew not reporting for training camp on time due to a contract dispute with the team, the Jaguars have added another fullback to fill their backfield void.

Jones-Drew was added to the Jaguars' reserve/did not report list on Saturday which allows one extra roster spot for the team until he does report. That spot was filled by fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou, a fourth year player tha signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears in 2009.

Ta'ufo'ou has also spent time with the Broncos, Browns and Titans since 2011. During his time with the California Golden Bears, Ta'ufo'ou played fullback in front of Marshawn Lynch (2005, 2006), Justin Forsett (2007) and Jahvid Best (2008), each of whom finished their respective seasons with 1,000 yards rushing.

Ta'ufo'ou also fills the void for difficult-to-pronounce Polynesian last names with the departure of Naufahu Tahi.
