Jaguars sign Ricky Stanzi, Jacques McClendon
The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed quarterback Ricky Stanzi and offensive guard Jacques McClendon and quarterback Ricky Stanzi, cutting wide receivers Jeremy Ebert and Tobais Palmer.
Stanzi was signed to a two-year contract.
McClendon opened the season on the 53-man roster after he was claimed off waivers from Atlanta on Sept. 1. He was waived the last three weeks on a Saturday and re-signed the following Monday as the club added a wide receiver from the practice squad.
He has spent time with Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. McClendon is a former fourth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2010 where he played in four games as a rookie, his only career action. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Falcons before he was waived on final cuts.
Stanzi was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Aug. 27 from Kansas City and was waived on Sept. 28. He was a fifth-round pick of the Chiefs in the 2011 NFL draft. Stanzi spent the last two seasons on the Chiefs active roster but did not play in a regular season game.
Stanzi started 35 games at Iowa and posted a 26-9 record as a starter, completing 542 of 907 passes for 7,377 yards.
