The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed offensive tackle Chris Ziemann, who has been with the New York Giants the last two seasons. Ziemann was originally signed as an undrafted rookie in 2000 and played in eight games before suffereing a torn ACL in his left knee and spending the second half of the season on injured reserve. In 2001, he was waived in the final cuts and then re-signed to the Giants' practice squad, where he spent the entire season. The 6-8, 305-pound Ziemann started for two years at Michigan, where he played with current Jaguars offensive tackle Maurice Williams. Ziemann, 25, is a native of Aurora, Ill.
