The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed middle linebacker Chester

Burnett, who played for the Washington Redskins in 1998. He

replaces Tom McManus, who was placed on injured reserve

yesterday with a foot injury.

Burnett was waived by the Redskins in the final cuts on September

  1. He was a seventh-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in

1998 and waived before the start of the season. He was signed to

Washington's practice squad and then activated to the 53-man

roster for the final five games of the season, playing both linebacker

and on special teams, where he made two tackles. The 5-10,

238-pound Burnett was a four-year latterman at the University of

Arizona, where he was second-team All-Conference as a junior and

senior. Burnett, 24, is a native of Denver.
