Report: Jacksonville Jaguars sign DE Paul Spicer

According to Adam Caplan of Fox Sports, the Jacksonville Jaguars have signed veteran defensive end Paul Spicer. Spicer was previously a member of the Jaguars from 2000-2008. He was released in 2009 and had a stint with the New Orleans Saintsin the 2009 pre-season. I was under the impression Paul Spicer was doing some scout work with the Jaguars, but it looks like the Jaguars felt the need to bring on a veteran defensive end. Spicer, now 35, had 21.5 sacks with the Jaguars from 2005-2008.

I find it hard to believe this will be much more than a ceremonial retirement situation, as I can't see Spicer making the teams roster or even going to camp.

UPDATE 9:37 A.M.: Tania Ganguli tweeted as much, confirming my suspicion.

The #Jaguars signed Paul Spicer to a one-day deal because he wants to retire a Jaguar. I'll try to talk to him today to find out his plans
