During the three day mini-camp that took place over the weekend, over two dozen players participated on a tryout basis without a full-time contract. Among those tryout players were seven veterans, three of which earned their way on to the roster by impressing coaches over the weekend.

Today the Jaguars announced the signings of quarterback Jordan Palmer, fullback Naufahu Tahi and defensive tackle Odrick Ray.

Palmer spent four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, mostly backing up his older brother Carson Palmer, and appeared in four games. Tahi has spent most of his five-year career with the Vikings where he played in 56 career games and made 14 starts. Ray was an undrafted free agent signing by the Jaguars in 2011 and spent preseason with the Jaguars before being released.

Three veteran players were released to make room for he signings: quarterback Dan LeFevour, wide receiver Jarett Dillard and safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. Also waived were three rookies: wide receiver Rosario Nelson, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin and defensive end Frank Trotter.
