Jaguars Sign Maurice Stovall, Release Stephen Spach

The Jacksonville Jaguars continue their tight end shuffle on Wednesday, signing veteran tight end Maurice Stovall and releasing tight end Stephen Spach.

Stovall, 6-5, 220, has played in 71 games with 11 starts after being selected in the third round of the 2006 draft by Tampa Bay. His career totals include 52 receptions for 668 yards and three touchdowns. He spent five seasons (2006-10) with the Buccaneers before joining Detroit in 2011 where he played in 15 games. He entered the NFL as a wide receiver before making a move to tight end.

The Jaguars signed Spach a little over a week ago to replace Colin Cloherty, but once again shuffle their tight ends. Stovall looks to be more of a flex/motion tight end than the blocking style tight end, as he was originally a wide receiver in the NFL, that Spach was signed to be, so it's possible Stovall could actually be used in the Jaguars offense. It needs all the help it can get.
