The Jaguars announced Friday morning that they have re-signed offensive tackle Guy Whimper to an undisclosed contract extension.
Whimper, who turns 29 in May, was forced into the starting lineup for 15 games last season. He struggled noticeably and mightily to protect quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
The Jaguars will presumably hope that Whimper returns only as a backup in 2012. They need Eben Britton to get healthy.
