The Jaguars signed two players to their practice squad today to fill roster spots created when two other players were signed by other teams. The new players are DT David Barnard and DE Harold Gragg. They replace LB Al Wallace, who was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles, and DT Mike Flynn, who was signed by the Baltimore Ravens.
Barnard is a 6-2, 320-pounder from the University of Florida. He spent 15 weeks of last season on the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad and was in the team's training camp this year until being waived on August 19. He played last spring with the Scottish Claymores in the World lLeague. A native of Miami, the 24-year-old Barnard was a four-year letterman at Florida, where he led the team's linemen in tackles in 1995.
Gragg is a 6-4, 275-pounder from Wake Forest who signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted rookie in April and was waived by the Giants on August 19. Gragg started most of four seasons at Wake Forest. He is a native of Black Mountain, N.C.
