Jaguars sign yet another former Patriot

Jeremy Ebert AP

As a public service to any player released by the Patriots in the coming weeks, we suggest you listen to classic rock radio. Because you’re about to go from Aerosmith to Lynyrd Skynyrd quicker than you can say Two-fer Tuesday.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars have signed wide receiver Jeremy Ebert.

He’s the third former Patriot acquired by the Jags in the last eight days, joining defensive tackles Brandon Deaderick and Kyle Love.

The Patriots cut the former seventh-rounder on April 29, after drafting a pair of receivers. He spent some time on the Eagles practice squad last year, but had re-signed with the Patriots in January.

To make room for Ebert on the roster, the Jaguars waived defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton, a seventh-round pick last year.

    The Patriots are sending their players down to the minor leagues.

    In a related item, how is a guy named Ryan O’Halloran NOT covering sports for a Boston newspaper?

    The Jags scouting department is basically just a guy with a laptop that F5′s PFT until another Patriots failed draft pick becomes available.

    What a travesty.

    I f you’re this player how do you explain this to your family that you’re going from Multi Championship Winner New England to the NFL’s universal doormat team?

    What’s worse is you have to depend on TheGreatGabbert to throw you the ball.

    How embarrassing.

    Why would a team’s fans so used to winning talk sooo much trash about another team that isn’t one of your rivals?

    Good luck to Ebert. I’m a big fan- after we got him last year I’d watched all his youtube vids, and he looked amazing. Like Danny Amendola he’s younger, bigger and faster than Wes Welker. So fast that on a longer run he’d burn the defenders big-time. And his 40 time was lousy. But that and distance runs can be sooo different. Explosion vs top speed. Something Wes can’t do is outrun defenders in distance runs. So anyway… I’ve been singing his praises all along, hoping he’d find a spot back on the team. I wonder what went wrong? Maybe just a case of close but no cigar? But Gabbert throwing him the ball won’t be helping his career.
