The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Tennessee Titans defensive end Pannel Egboh and safety Chris Banjo following a three-day tryout.

The 6-foot-6, 277-pound Egboh and the 5-foot-11 Banjo were two of 18 veteran free agents invited to participate in the team's voluntary minicamp, which ended Thursday.

Egboh stood out because of his size. He also got extra repetitions because of injuries to Jeremy Mincey (ear infection) and Andre Branch (groin).

Egboh, who played college football at Stanford, originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with San Francisco in 2009. He also spent time with Houston and Philadelphia before landing in Tennessee. He played in 12 games with the Titans last season after spending 2011 on the team's practice squad.

Banjo, a four-year starter at Southern Methodist, tried out for Oakland and Pittsburgh during rookie minicamps in 2012, but sat out last season. He first caught Jacksonville's eye at the 2013 Dallas Super Regional Combine.
