The Jacksonville Jaguars have been awarded fourth-year long snapper Jeremy Cain off waivers from the Washington Redskins.
Cain, 6-1, 245, has played in 17 games as a fullback/long snapper. Cain was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by Chicago in 2004 and he appeared in eight games over two seasons as a backup linebacker. He was not on an NFL roster in 2006 but was signed by Tennessee on October 30, 2007. He played in nine games and one postseason game for the Titans as a long snapper after an injury to Ken Amato, and also saw action on the coverage units.
A native of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., the 29-year old Cain was a two-time All-America selection as a linebacker at the University of Massachusetts where he ranked fifth on the school's career list with 363 tackles. He played linebacker and long snapper at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Florida.
