Report: Jaguars expected to sign DE John Chick

Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio is reporting that the Jaguars are expected to sign defensive end John Chick. Chick originally entered the NFL in 2006 after attending Utah State University, signing with the Texans after going undrafted. His time with the team was short-lived and he signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canandian Football League in 2007.

Chick found success in the CFL and earned the league's Most Outstanding Defensive Player award in 2009. His play in the CFL earned him a contract with the Colts and he worked himself on to the Colts practice squad for the 2010 season.

In the 2011 preseason he made some noise recording 11 tackles and 1.5 sacks in the Colts four games, but ultimately didn't make their final 53 players.

Chick is a 28 year old, 6'4, 250 pound end that should provide another pass rusher for the Jaguars that are still looking to establish themselves in that regard. It's unknown at this point if he will be signed to the practice squad or the active roster.

Update: TSN reports that Chick was offered a practice squad spot by the Colts, but turned it down to go on the Jaguars practice squad. Felt like he’d have a better chance at being activated to the active roster in Jacksonville.
