Jaguars Sign Ziemann, Six Jaguars Assigned to NFL Europe Teams

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.


The six Jaguars players who were allocated by the team last week to play in the NFL Europe League have been assigned to teams:

OT Derrick Chambers Berlin Thunder

CB Renard Cox Barcelona Dragons

TE James Hill Amsterdam Admirals

OT Jeff Miller Rhein Fire

WR Jimmy Redmond Frankfurt Galaxy

OT Patrick Venzke Rhein Fire

The six players will report to the NFLEL training camp in Tampa on March 9, and play will begin on April 13. The six players will report for the Jaguars' training camp in July but will not count against the team's roster until the final cuts in September.
