JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed cornerback Mike Holmes and waived safety Jeremiah Brown.

Holmes was originally signed as a rookie
free agent by the Chicago Bears in 2011 and was waived during final
cuts. He was signed to Indianapolis' practice squad last October and
then promoted to the 53-man roster in early December. The Colts waived
him in May.


Holmes finished his college career at
Syracuse with 274 tackles. A three-year starter at cornerback and free
safety, he had six career interceptions. He also recorded a 23.5-yard
average as a kickoff returner with one touchdown and returned 30 punts
for a 10.4-yard average.
