Defensive tackle Renaldo Wynn, the Jaguars' first-round draft choice in 1997, signed a contract today and practiced with the rest of the team in the afternoon session of the second day of training camp. Length and terms of Wynn's contract are undisclosed. His arrival gives the Jaguars their complete roster of 81 players in training camp.
Wynn, who missed both practices on Sunday and today's morning session, said, "I'm happy it's behind me, and now I just want to get started on the field. I will have to make up for the lost time, and I look forward to making that goal. I'll give 120 percent - that's the kind of guy I am."
"He's behind three practices," said head coach Tom Coughlin, "but getting here gets our defensive line together and our rotation will be in effect. We'll go forward and get him up to speed with everyone else."
Monday's two practices - the team practices in full pads in the morning and in shoulder pads and helmets the afternoon - were conducted in 90-plus degree temperatures. "I think it's great," said Coughlin. "I think it will help us. The guys seemed to have come through it OK."
Tuesday's practices were also conducted with officials on the field to call penalties. "We've already created the emphasis we want in that direction," said Coughlin, "and having officials during practice makes players aware of what the consequences are."
The team will practice at 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday on the Ferrell Fields adjacent to ALLTEL Stadium. There is no afternoon practice scheduled for Tuesday. The team will resume two-a-day sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.
