The Atlanta Falcons have beefed up their offensive line.
Vince Manuwai, a guard who has played his entire NFL career in Jacksonville, has signed with the Falcons.
The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Manuwai was a third-round pick out of Hawaii and was, when healthy, a starter for the Jaguars from 2003 to 2010. But he suffered an ankle injury during the lockout, showed up to training camp out of shape, and was cut by the Jaguars in July of 2011. He didn’t catch on anywhere else after that.
Manuwai heads to Atlanta already knowing the playbook: Current Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter was the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator for Manuwai’s final four years in Jacksonville.
