JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars continued piecing together their offense Thursday.
Continuing a free-agency period that largely has focused on offense, the Jaguars on Thursday re-signed a player at a position of need.
James O’Shaughnessy, who spent the past two seasons with the Jaguars, re-signed with the team as unrestricted free agent Thursday. Specifics of the deal were not disclosed.
O’Shaughnessy became a free agent March 13.
O’Shaughnessy (6-feet-4, 245 pounds), 27, originally a fifth-round selection by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2015 NFL Draft, joined the Jaguars off waivers from the New England Patriots during final roster reductions prior to the 2017 season. He has 46 career receptions for 449 yards and a touchdown in four NFL seasons, including 38 receptions for 363 yards and a touchdown with the Jaguars.
He has started 10 of 30 games played in his two seasons with the Jaguars.
Since the start of the new NFL League Year on March 13, the Jaguars have signed or re-signed seven players, including six offensive players: guard A.J. Cann (re-signed), quarterback Nick Foles (Philadelphia Eagles), tight end Geoff Swaim (Dallas Cowboys), tackle Cedrick Ogbuehi (Cincinnati Bengals), wide receiver Chris Conley (Kansas City Chiefs), linebacker Jake Ryan (Green Bay Packers) and O’Shaughnessy (re-signed).
The Jaguars currently have four tight ends on the roster: O’Shaughnessy, Swaim, fourth-year veteran Ben Koyack and first-year veteran Pharoah McKever.
