The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed fullback Daimon Shelton, safety Mike Logan, tight end Rich Griffith, guard Todd Fordham and linebacker Erik Storz. Length and terms of the contracts are not disclosed. Griffith was an unrestricted free agent, while Shelton, Logan and Fordham were restricted free agents.

Shelton, 27, has been the Jaguars' starting fullback the last two seasons. In 1999, he was the lead blocker for the NFL's top-ranked rushing offense. In three seasons, Shelton has carried the ball 37 times for 101 yards and one touchdown and caught 22 passes for 166 yards.

Logan, 25, was the Jaguars' nickel back last season, but he fractured his left ankle in the second game and spent the remainder of the year on injured reserve. In three years, he has played in 28 games, making 34 tackles and returning 29 kickoffs for 675 yards (23.3-yard average).

Griffith returns for his sixth season with the team. The 30-year-old tight end and long snapper has seen action in 71 games as a Jaguar, tied for seventh most in franchise history. He has made 21 receptions for 296 yards.

Fordham, 26, suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in a combined practice session with the Atlanta Falcons last August 7 and spent the entire 1999 season on injured reserve. He appeared in 12 games in 1997 and '98.

Storz, 24, played on special teams in seven games last year before suffering a torn ACL in his right knee on October 31 at Cincinnati.

The Jaguars now have 64 players on their roster, including DE Tony Brackens (franchise player) and TE Damon Jones (the only remaining restricted free agent).
