Jaguars sign Pannel Egboh, Chris Banjo from tryout group

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Of the 18 players brought in for tryouts during voluntary mini-camp, the Jaguars signed a safety and a defensive end on Thursday.

Following a three-day veteran mini-camp that featured 18 tryout players working to impress the Jaguars brass, defensive end Pannel Egboh and safety Chris Banjo were both signed by the team on Thursday, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Egboh, 27, played at Stanford, but went undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft before signing with the San Francisco 49ers. After bouncing from the Houston Texans to the Philadelphia Eagles, Egboh stuck with the Tennessee Titans, playing 12 games for the team in 2012. At 6-6, 277 pounds, Egboh's best fit would appear to be at the 5-technique position opposite the LEO.

Banjo, 23, was a four-year starter at Southern Methodist, but went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft. After the draft he earned tryouts with the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers, but did not receive a subsequent contract from either team. He has not played in an NFL game.

The Jaguars will continue their offseason workout program with OTAs, beginning on May 13 and running until the final, mandatory mini-camp that is scheduled to conclude on June 13.
