Jaguars G.M. Gene Smith has made some nice moves since taking over the team, but signing Aaron Kampman to a big free agent deal has not worked out well.
Kampman started off last season strong before tearing his ACL last November. He struggled to get healthy at any point this season, and will be placed on injured reserve on Friday according to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. (She did her reporting while driving. Dedication.)
Kampman was only active for three games this year and didn’t record a tackle. He was paid $11 million guaranteed on a four-year contract, but will almost definitely be cut in the offseason.
The team signed tight end Colin Cloherty to the active roster.
