Free agent center Wisniewski signs 1-year deal with Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed unrestricted free-agent center Stefan Wisniewski to a one-year contract, providing them with much-needed line depth.
Wisniewski started 61 games - 46 at center and 15 at guard - over the past four seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
A second-round draft pick in 2011, the 6-foot-3, 307-pound Wisniewski played under current Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson the last two seasons in Oakland. He started all 16 games at center in 2014 and was part of an offensive line that allowed the sixth fewest sacks (28) in the league.
The Jaguars went into the offseason wanting to add depth and competition to a line that allowed a franchise-record 71 sacks in 2014.
Jaguars general manager David Caldwell says Wisniewski gives ''us great position flexibility along our offensive line'' and ''brings a lot of experience to our offensive line room.''
