The Jaguars added depth to their offensive line today when they signed Daryl Terrell to a two-year contract. Terrell, who played 60 percent of the snaps at left tackle for the New Orleans Saints last season, signed a deal this morning that will pay him $450,000 in salary this year and $750,000 in 2003. Terrell also received a $25,000 signing bonus, and his contract includes an $800,000 roster bonus due the first day of the '03 league calendar year.
At New Orleans, Terrell replaced injured veteran Willie Roaf last season. At 6-5, 296, Terrell is also capable of playing guard.
Terrell was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted rookie free agent from Southern Mississippi in 1997. He spent time on the Saints' practice squad in '98 before making the final roster in '99, when he played in 13 games.
He was a restricted free agent this spring. When Terrell's rights reverted back to the Saints on April 15, the Saints released him.
The Jaguars may also make a similar contract offer to former Tennessee Titans center Kevin Long.
