The Jaguars have signed quarterback Todd Bouman to their active roster. Bouman will serve as the backup to starting quarterback Quinn Gray on Sunday, when the Jaguars play in Tampa Bay. Gray will be making his first pro start.
Jaguars tight ends coach Mike Tice was Bouman's head coach with the Minnesota Vikings. Bouman had a career game in 2001, when Bouman started three games in place of the injured Daunte Culpepper. In a game that season against the Tennessee Titans, Bouman threw for 348 yards and four touchdowns.
Bouman was traded to New Orleans in exchange for a sixth-round draft choice in 2003, and he started three games for the Saints in '05 without remarkable results.
Signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 1997, Bouman played in NFL Europe in 1999. He played his college football at St. Cloud State. He's 6-2, 226 and is 35 years old.
The Jaguars will announce later today what player has been released to make room for Bouman on the roster.
