The Jacksonville Jaguars have added veteran interior offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The team should be pretty familiar with Wisniewski, as offensive coordinator Greg Olson worked with him the past two seasons with the Oakland Raiders. Originally drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Wisniewski has started 61 games for Oakland on the interior of the offensive line.

Many wondered why Wisniewski was available to late in the free agency process, but it appears that he played much of the 2014 season with a torn labrum and had it repaired during the offseason, as reported by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.

Outside of his rookie season where he spent time at both left guard and center, Wisniewski has been a solid player at the center position for the Raiders the past three years, even last year with a torn labrum. His addition to the Jaguars gives the offensive line at worst some good versatile depth, but he's also someone that can push second-year center Luke Bowanko for a starting position.
