JAGUARS SIGN ZACH WIEGERT

The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed free agent guard Zack

Wiegert, a four-year veteran who has started 45 games for the St.

Louis Rams since 1995. Length and terms of the contract are not

disclosed.

Wiegert, 26, was a second-round draft choice of the Rams in 1995.

He played in five games as a rookie, making two starts and missing

11 games with an ankle injury. He moved permanently into the

starting lineup in 1996. In 1998, Wiegert started 13 of 13 games

played at both right and left guard, missing three games at

midseason with a knee injury. In '97, Wiegert committed the fewest

penalties of any Rams starting offensive lineman.

The 6-4, 310-pound Wiegert is very versatile. He can also play both

guard and tackle on either side of the line, and he has one pass

reception for a first down and he scored a touchdown on a fumble

recovery.

The winner of the Outland Trophy in 1994 at Nebraska, Wiegert

started 37 consecutive games at right tackle and was consensus

first-team All-America and All-Big Eight as a senior.

Wiegert was a three-sport athlete at Bergan High in Fremont, Neb.,

where he was All-State in football and All-Conference in basketball.

He is married (Amy).
