Brad Meester signs on for 14th season with Jags

There’s a new general manager and coach in Jacksonville, but it looks like the same old center will be snapping the ball.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that Brad Meester and the Jaguars have agreed to terms on a one-year deal. That will make 14 straight years in a Jaguars uniform for Meester, who was drafted in the second round of the 2000 draft.

Meester’s been quite durable for the Jaguars over the years. He’s missed just 15 games during his career and none in the last four years. His play slipped in 2012, perhaps explaining why he was talking about retirement if the Jags moved in a different direction.

That didn’t happen, although it would probably behoove the Jaguars to find a younger player to groom as Meester’s replacement in the draft. Meester’s leadership and experience with the organization will be hard to replace, but he isn’t going to play forever.

    He prefers to be called Mr. Meester.

    Always enjoy seeing players stick with one team. Hopefully Kaepernick can be like that with the 49ers!

    His replacement might be on the roster now. Mike Brewster was an All-Conference center at Ohio State. Brewster played guard for us last season as a rookie free agent after Will Rackley went on IR & Eben Britton flamed out.

    Something to be said about the loyalty there. I think its pretty cool. I know Jax. hasn’t been the best team over the last decade and then some.

    To see someone stick it out through it all is refreshing. Regardless of what team a person players for.

    Yeah, Kaepernick could be a solid center with the 49ers for the next decade, if he can put on 75 pounds.

    Nice to have him back for one more year. Not only has he been a great player, but also has been a great role model in our city.

    49′er fans will be wanting him out of the picture as soon as he has a mediocre year in 2013.

    To be fair, his play really didn’t slip much at all last year. He was actually one of the more consistent linemen for the Jags.
