The Jaguars have signed in the past couple of weeks a pair of big-name linebackers, Paul Posluszny and Matt Roth.
They’ve added another linebacker with a somewhat lower NFL “Q” rating. The team has announced that linebacker Gerris Wilkinson is now a Jaguar.
A third-round pick in 2006, Wilkinson has played in 58 games, including seven regular-season starts. He has 32 tackles playing defense, and 36 special-teams tackles.
Wilkinson played in every game of the Giants’ 2007 Super Bowl run, starting the wild-card win over the Bucs, during which he made seven tackles.
The Jags also announced that they have signed punter Brent Bowden, a sixth-round pick of the Buccaneers in 2010. The Jaguars dumped linebacker Alvin Bowen and receiver John Matthews, keeping their roster at 90.
