The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fullback Patrick Washington and defensive end Chris Combs to tender offers. Both players were exclusive rights free agents.
Washington, 25, has been the starting fullback the last two seasons after signing with the team as an undrafted rookie out of Virginia. He has played in 30 games as the Jaguars' primary blocking back, with no carries and six receptions. He missed the final two games of 2002 with a torn MCL suffered on December 15 at Cincinnati.
Combs, 26, played in the final two games of last season after being activated from the Jaguars' practice squad. He spent the 2000 and 2001 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being drafted in the sixth round out of Duke.
