Sorensen, 26, was the Jaguars special teams captain last season and played in all 16 games.

Cole, 27, played in 11 games for the Broncos before being placed on injured reserve for the final four weeks of 2003. He spent four seasons in Denver after being drafted in the third round (70th overall pick) by the Broncos in the 2000 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M. The 6-0, 195-pound wide receiver has played in 35 games with two starts, while recording 12 catches for 164 yards. He also has 89 career kickoff returns for 2,105 yards.
