Jags add Tony Gilbert for LB depth
By Paul Kuharsky
Jacksonville added linebacker a couple veteran linebackers in Tony Gilbert, who played 2003-2007 with the franchise, and Kris Griffin. Gilbert’s been with Atlanta the last two seasons.
While I was recently with the team indications were they weren’t thrilled with their depth at the position after Daryl Smith, Keith Morrison, Justin Durant, and Russell Allen. Freddy Keiaho, who had some good stretches in Indy, could have ranked fifth but hardly stands out. Teddy Lehman could also be bumped down the depth chart with the moves.
The Jaguars also added second-year defensive tackle Leger Douzable.
Receiver Nate Hughes, safety Terrell Whitehead and offensive lineman Andrew Crummey were cut to make room for the additions.
