The Jaguars were awarded FB Bradie Ewing off waivers from the Falcons. 2012 5th rd pick out of Wisconsin, limited by injuries thus far— Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) March 25, 2014
Ewing, 24, was originally drafted in the fifth-round of the 2012 NFL Draft, which was the final draft that David Caldwell participated in with the Atlanta Falcons before becoming the Jaguars general manager in 2013. He played his college football at Wisconsin as a two-year starter and special teams ace.
At the NFL combine Ewing measured in at 6' and 239 pounds, running a 4.76 40-yard dash. His rookie season with the Falcons was short, as he tore his ACL in August and was placed on injured reserve. He played just two games his second season in the NFL before a shoulder injury saw him placed in injured reserve once again.
Clearly Caldwell is a fan of what Ewing can bring to the table.
