The SportsXchange

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed cornerback Will Blackmon and waived defensive back Marcus Burley, the team announced Wednesday.

Blackmon was out of the NFL in 2012 while recovering from a knee injury. He was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday after spending the 2013 preseason in Seattle.

The 28-year-old Blackmon began his career in Green Bay as a fourth-round draft pick in 2006 and played in 32 games, including two starts, in four seasons with the Packers. He signed as a free agent with the New York Giants during the 2010 season.

In 43 NFL games, Blackmon has 21 tackles, five fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. He also has returned punts (9.5-yard average) and kickoffs (20.7 yards per return).

Burley was an undrafted free agent from Delaware.
