Report: Jaguars sign WR/S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah to PS, release S Matt Estrada

New, comments

Adam Caplan of Sirius/XM Radio is reporting that the Jaguars have signed former Cowboys S/WR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah to their practice squad. To make room for him, Caplan also reports the Jaguars released S Matt Estrada from the practice squad.

Owusu-Ansah was drafted by the Cowboys because of his elite physical skill set (6'0, 207 pounds, 4.32 40 yard dash), but was unable to provide much production. The Cowboys moved him to safety and then to wide receiver at the beginning of this season, but ultimately his only contribution for the team was as a return specialist and a subpar one at that.

His pure athleticism make him an interesting prospect and one that the Jaguars will try to get the most out of on their practice squad. Estrada spent the entire season on the Jaguars practice squad after a relatively strong showing in preseason.
