Jaguars finalize practice squad

9/2/2014

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars filled out their 10-member practice squad Tuesday by signing rookie tight end Marcel Jensen, who had been with the team during OTAs, training camp and the preseason. Here is a quick look at the squad:

OT Cody Booth: The undrafted rookie played left tackle and tight end at Temple. He had been with the Bears since May but got cut Aug. 1 and signed with the Jaguars Aug. 16.

DL DeAndre Coleman: He's a big body (6-foot-3, 315 pounds) who wasn't able to crack the rotation at tackle or end because of the Jaguars' offseason upgrades along the defensive line.

TE Marcel Jensen: He looked very good in OTAs and minicamp, but once the pads went on in training camp he had some problems. He has good size (6-6, 270 pounds) but is a raw talent who needs time to develop.

RB Henry Josey: The undrafted free agent from Missouri led Philadelphia in rushing in the preseason (225 yards) and also had a 27-yard touchdown on a screen pass. It was going to be tough for him to get playing time behind LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

S Craig Loston: The undrafted free agent from LSU has the size (6-2, 209) the Jaguars like in a safety.

QB Stephen Morris: Being familiar with Jedd Fisch's offense, plus being younger, made him the pick over Ricky Stanzi to be the team's third quarterback.

WR Kerry Taylor: He had problems with drops throughout camp. He caught 19 passes in seven games with the Jaguars last season.

CB Peyton Thompson: He spent the 2012 season on Atlanta's practice squad and part of the 2013 season on Washington's practice squad. He spent just six days with Chicago last month.

WR Tony Washington: The undrafted rookie free agent caught three passes for 37 yards with Indianapolis in the preseason.

LB Marcus Whitfield: He's another pass-rushing linebacker who could potentially be a fit at the OTTO position.
