The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fifth-year cornerback Kenneth Acker and undrafted rookie cornerback Bryce Canady. To make room on the roster, the Jaguars released fifth-year cornerback Dexter McDougle and waived first-year cornerback Charlie Miller.

Acker has played in 40 games (15 starts) in his NFL career, most recently playing all 16 games in 2017 with the Kansas City Chiefs. In his last two seasons with the Chiefs, Acker appeared in 25 games and recorded 35 tackles, four passes defensed, one interception, and one fumble recovery. In 2015, Acker played in 15 games (13 starts) with the San Francisco 49ers and posted 63 tackles, eight passes defensed and three interceptions.

As a rookie, Acker spent the season on the reserve/injured list.

Canady, a Jacksonville native, played at Florida International from 2016-17. As a senior, he played in all 13 games with the Panthers and produced 65 tackles, one interception, seven passes defensed, and three fumble recoveries.

Canady played locally at Paxton High School right here in Jacksonville.
