The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed free agent offensive lineman Mackenzy Bernadeau on Friday afternoon, according to a report from Mike Garofolo of FOX Sports.

Bernadeau was seventh-round pick by the Carolina Panthers in the 2008 NFL Draft. He's played in 95 games, starting 48 of them, including all 16 for the Dallas Cowboys last season.

At 30 years old, Bernadeau would definitely be the veteran presence the Jaguars need along the interior of their line, what with Stefen Wisniewski most likely leaving as a free agent. It'll be interesting to see what the Jaguars do with their young guards Brandon Linder and A.J. Cann, who can also play all three interior spots. Will they play Bernadeau at center and keep Linder and Cann at their natural guard spots? Will they try Cann at center and have a veteran in Bernadeau next to Luke Joeckel?

Either way, it's hopefully an upgrade to Wisniewski and the recently released Zane Beadles.
