The Jaguars signed veteran free agent guard Chris Liwienski today and waived quarterback Paul Smith, who had signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in April.
Liwienski, 32, started 14 of his 16 games at left guard for the Miami Dolphins last season after signing as an unrestricted free agent. The 6-5, 325-pounder enters his 10th NFL season after starting six games in 2006 with the Arizona Cardinals and his first eight seasons (1998-2005) in Minnesota. The Sterling Heights, Michigan native was originally drafted by Detroit in the seventh round of the 1998 NFL Draft out of Indiana but was waived in the preseason. He has started 94 of his 126 career games. He will wear jersey No. 68.
