Jaguars sign Barnes

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms on a contract with rookie offensive tackle Khalif Barnes today. Barnes was drafted in the second round and was one of eight players selected by the Jaguars in the 2005 NFL Draft in April. He is the fifth Jaguars draft pick and second of the NFL's second-round picks to agree to terms.

Barnes, 23, was the 52nd overall selection in the draft. The 6-5, 315-pounder was a four-year starter at Washington. He started 42 consecutive games before missing the final seven games as a senior after fracturing his right wrist. The Spring Valley, Calif. native allowed only three sacks as a junior and senior.

All 88 Jaguars are under contract except for three of this year's draft picks.
