Jaguars sign guard Jacques McClendon to 53-man roster, waive wide receiver Jeremy Ebert

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed guard Jacques McClendon to the 53-man roster and waived first-year receiver Jeremy Ebert, the club announced. McClendon opened the 2013 season on the Jaguars’ 53-man roster after he was claimed off waivers from Atlanta on Sept. 1. He was waived on Sept. 14 by the Jaguars and re-signed on Sept. 16 and waived again on Sept. 22. He has spent time with Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. McClendon is a former fourth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2010 where he played in four games as a rookie, his only career action. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Falcons before he was waived on final cuts.

The Jacksonville Jaguars summed up in one sign | For The Win

With the seventh pick in the third round of last year’s draft, the Jags took punter Bryan Anger from California. Five picks later, the Seattle Seahawks drafted Russell Wilson from Wisconsin, the same Russell Wilson who torched the woeful Jags for four touchdown passes on Sunday. You can’t really blame the Jags for going punter over quarterback. Between Blaine Gabbert (4-10 as a starter in his 2011 rookie campaign) and Chad Henne (13-18 overall as a starter), the team was stacked at quarterback entering the 2012 draft, like those years when the Packers had Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. Punter, on the other hand, was a huge question mark for the team. It’s an especially important position when Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are your quarterbacks.
