JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 14 (UPI) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars Friday continued to fortify their offensive line, signing versatile guard Raleigh Roundtree to a one-year contract.
Despite his versatility, Roundtree, who spent his first five seasons with the San Diego Chargers and started 31 games at both guard positions over the last
two years, did not draw much interest in the free agent market. He signed for the veteran minimum of $525,000.
Since June 1, the Jaguars have signed Roundtree, center Kevin Long from Tennessee and tackle Daryl Terrell from New Orleans after unloading wide receiver Keenan McCardell and middle linebacker Hardy Nickerson.
Roundtree has started at every position on the offensive line except center, most of them at guard. He cracked the starting lineup at left guard in 2000 before switching to right guard last season. He became expendable when the Chargers selected Nebraska's Toniu Fonoti in the second round of the April draft.
