JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars might supplement another former Pro Bowl actor to a brew before a start of training stay on Jul 27.
Former Cleveland Browns parsimonious finish Gary Barnidge is scheduled to revisit and work out for a Jaguars on Jul 25, a joining source told First Coast News on Wednesday.
Entering his 10th NFL season, Barnidge has constructed 2,258 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns during his career.
His best deteriorate came in 2015 with a Browns, as he posted 1,043 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns.
Barnidge was expelled by Cleveland following this year’s NFL Draft. The Browns used a first-round collect on Miami parsimonious finish David Njoku, who is set to take on Barnidge’s personification time.
If a Jaguars were to pointer Barnidge, it would be a homecoming for a maestro parsimonious end. Barnidge played football during Middleburg High School. He played college football during Louisville
Barnidge was drafted in a fifth turn of a 2008 NFL Draft by a Carolina Panthers.
The Jaguars now have Marcedes Lewis, Mychal Rivera, Ben Koyack, Neal Sterling, Alex Ellis and Caleb Bluiett at parsimonious end.
Lewis and Rivera have been a front-runners for a starting job, though Koyack has been seen as a gifted developmental player. Sterling gained some-more weight this offseason to continue his transition from tiny propagandize far-reaching receiver to parsimonious end.
Barnidge is a clever blocker and receiver. He offers a Jaguars a stronger multiple of those skills than any other stream member of a parsimonious finish abyss chart.
Adding Barnidge to a abyss draft could harm Lewis or Rivera when it comes to receiving personification time or even creation a roster.
The Jaguars have Koyack and Sterling as young, inexpensive options as backup parsimonious ends, so dropping one of a veterans to keep Barnidge would make sense.
Barnidge’s workout might have a domino outcome on a register and/or make it harder to acquire a job in training stay for a rest of a parsimonious ends.
The register now has one open mark following a recover of rookie reserve Charlie Miller.
