The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed free agent offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Beachum is someone who's reportedly been adamant about playing left tackle in the free agent market, not guard, and I would assume he'd prefer to sign with a team who'd give him a chance to compete for a starting position. The Jaguars interest seemed to point to the fact that they're already looking for fallback plans with Joeckel, which is smart. Not a lot of general managers are willing to admit mistakes that quickly and look for a potential replacement/upgrade, which is what Beachum could be if he's signed.
Beachum was a seventh round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and has played in 40 games in his four-year career with the Steelers. He's started 35 of them, including all 16 in the 2014 NFL season.
