Jaguars sign Jacques McClendon, release Rasheed Bailey

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Wednesday that the team has signed veteran offensive lineman Jacques McClendon, releasing wide receiver Rasheed Bailey.

If that name sounds familiar, it's because McClendon was on the Jacksonville Jaguars a few seasons ago as a backup interior offensive lineman. In fact, at one point McClendon was in the competition to be the team's starting center and started a total of five games for the Jaguars combined during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Last season McClendon was with the Miami Dolphins, but the signing shows the team needed to add some depth to the offensive line with some of the injuries, which are forcing the team to play Luke Joeckel at left tackle rather than at left guard like intended. McClendon can play all three interior line spots and should compete for a backup role on the roster.
