The Jacksonville Jaguars today re-signed offensive lineman Todd Fordham, an unrestricted free agent who has spent the last five years with the team.
Fordham, 28, has played in 40 games with 21 starts since being signed as an undrafted rookie out of Florida State in 1997. A versatile player, he started 12 games at left tackle in place of Tony Boselli in 2001 and eight at right tackle for an injured Zach Wiegert in 2000, in addition to one start at right guard in 1998. He missed the entire 1999 season with a torn ACL. Last year, Fordham signed with the Denver Broncos as an unrestricted free agent but was released in the final cuts. He re-signed with the Jaguars on October 2 to provide depth on the offensive line and then took over at left tackle when Boselli was injured for the season.
The Jaguars' roster now stands at 71 players heading into this weekend's college draft. The Jaguars have eight selections in the seven rounds.
