JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed TE David Grinnage to their active roster, the club announced today. To make room on the roster, the team waived/injured CB Josh Johnson. If Johnson clears waivers tomorrow, he will revert to the Jaguars' reserve/injured list.
Grinnage, 6-5, 265, has yet to appear in an NFL game after originally signing as a rookie free agent with Green Bay on April 30, 2016. Grinnage was released by the Packers via injury settlement after sustaining an injury during rookie minicamp. A three-year letterman at North Carolina State University, Grinnage caught 67 career passes for 798 yards and nine TDs. Grinnage left for the NFL following his redshirt junior season. Grinnage attended Newark H.S. in Newark, Del., and was a three-star recruit coming out of high school.
Johnson, a second-year CB out of Purdue University, has appeared in eight career games in the NFL, all with the Jaguars in 2016.
