The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed wide receiver Kevin Lee, a four-year veteran who was waived in the St. Louis Rams' training camp in 1997 and spent this spring with the World Bowl champion Rhein Fire in the NFL Europe League.
Lee, 6-1, 200, was originally drafted by the New England Patriots in the second round (35th overall) of the 1994 draft. He spent the 1994 season on injured reserve with a broken jaw and then played in seven games with two starts in 1995, catching eight passes for 107 yards. In 1996, Lee played in two games with the San Francisco 49ers after being waived by the Patriots during training camp. With the Fire, he made 18 receptions for 237 yards (13.2-yard average) and two touchdowns in 10 games.
A native of Mobile, Ala., the 27-year-old Lee was a four-year letterman at the University of Alabama, finishing his career with 63 receptions for 1,142 yards and a 1992 national championship.
With the signing of Lee, the Jaguars have 85 players on their roster.
The first practice of Jaguars training camp will be 3:20 p.m. Friday, July 24 and will be open to the public through Monday, August 17.
