The Jaguars are 0-3 and they brought in three players on Tuesday they hope will help them get rid of that zero in the win column.

The team announced that they have signed safety Sherrod Martin, tight end Nic Jacobs and linebacker Jeremiah George to their 53-man roster. Martin is the only member of the trio with professional experience.

Martin was a second-round pick in Carolina in 2009 and made 36 starts for them before tearing his ACL in December 2012. He didn’t play in the league at all last season and was with the Jaguars this summer. The need for Martin’s help arose when Chris Prosinski hurt his triceps. He was waived/injured on Tuesday and his departure leaves the Jags with only wide receiver Cecil Shorts and defensive tackle Tyson Alualu to show from the 2010 and 2011 drafts.

Jacobs was signed off of the Saints practice squad, where he landed after failing to make the team as an undrafted free agent. George was a Jets fifth-round pick this year and joins the Jaguars front heir practice squad.

The Jags also announced that they waived wide receiver Kerry Taylor and tight end Marcel Jensen and that defensive tackle DeAndre Coleman has left their practice squad for a job on Miami’s 53-man roster.
