The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed veteran cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste.
Jean-Baptiste was previously with the Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, and Detroit Lions after originally being selected by the New Orleans Saints in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Jean-Baptiste has appeared in four career games, all of which were with the Saints during his rookie season.

Most recently, Jean-Baptiste was signed by the Chiefs back in May before being waived in June.
Jean-Baptiste, 27, attended the University of Nebraska where he appeared in 36 career games, totaling 74 tackles, one sack, seven interceptions, 22 passes defended, and seven special teams tackles. As a senior in 2013, Jean-Baptiste started all 13 games and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection after posting 41 tackles, one sack, and four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.
He was originally enrolled as a wide receiver, but made the transition to cornerback in 2011.
Free agent tight end Gary Barnidge worked out with the Jaguars today, but the team opted to sign Jean-Baptiste instead.
The Jaguars now have 90 players on their roster.
