Jacksonville Jaguars reacquire WR Ernest Wilford

The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed Ernest Wilford, giving him a chance to make the roster as a tight end.

The team also waived defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis.

Wilford, a fourth-round draft pick by the Jaguars in 2004, left Jacksonville after four seasons and signed a lucrative deal with Miami.

The Dolphins, who gave him $6 million guaranteed, terminated his contract Monday, Miami’s biggest free-agent bust in the Bill Parcells regime.

Wilford caught just three passes for 25 yards last season. He moved from receiver to tight end this year and had a 33-yard touchdown reception against Jacksonville’s reserves in the preseason opener. He had no catches in the second preseason game.

Based on Wilford’s play last year, I don’t expect him to be of much use for Jacksonville.
