Jaguars Sign Wilbur; Waive Yelk

The Jacksonville Jaguars made two roster moves, signing rookie free agent Eric Wilbur and waiving punter Tony Yelk, who had signed on March 15 as a first-year free agent.

Wilbur, 22, was originally signed by the Houston Texans on May 5, 2007 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Florida. The 6-2, 200-pound punter was a four-year starter and help the Gators claim the 2007 BCS Championship title as a senior. The Winter Park native concluded his career as the University's all-time leader in punting yardage (9,900) and attempts (231) and was second in average (42.9). He led the SEC as a senior with 53 punts for a 42.3-yard average. He will wear jersey No. 4.

The Jaguars will have a practice session today at 1:30 p.m. (pads) at the practice fields. Thursday will be the last day training camp is open to the public, with practices scheduled for 11:00 a.m. (special teams) and 7:00 p.m. (shells). On Friday the Jaguars will travel to Dolphin Stadium to take on the Miami Dolphins in their first preseason game on Saturday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m.
