Jaguars Waive Zahursky, Sign Wesley

The Jacksonville Jaguars today waived offensive lineman Steve Zahursky and signed linebacker Joe Wesley.

Wesley, 6-1, 234 pounds, was signed by the Jaguars on July 25 and was waived in the final roster cut on September 2. He had five tackles and four special teams tackles in four preseason games. He played this spring for the Berlin Thunder in the NFL Europe League. He signed as a rookie free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 1999, starting the year on the practice squad before seeing action in eight games, primarily on special teams. He spent the first four weeks of the 2000 season on the 49ers' injured reserve list before being waived on September 26. Wesley, 24, led Louisiana State in tackles as a senior in 1998 and started every game as a junior and senior. Wesley will wear jersey number 50.

Zahursky, 24, was claimed on waivers by the Jaguars from Cleveland on August 29. He played in one game and was inactive for two this season. He was with the Jaguars in the 1998 preseason after signing as an undrafted rookie, but he was waived in the final cuts. In the last two seasons, he started 23 of 25 games played for the Browns, including all 16 last year. The 6-6, 305-pound Zahursky was a four-year starter at Kent State.

There are no changes to the Jaguars' injury report from Thursday.
