Jacksonville added the final piece to its practice squad on Thursday, as specialist Kaare Vedvik signed with the team. Vedvik, originally from Norway, played college football at Marshall and started his career as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Ravens. He has since bounced around the league and has one career appearance.

That came in a 2019 game for the New York Jets, in which he missed an extra point attempt and a 45-yard field goal. Vedvik spent the 2020 season with Buffalo, Carolina, and Washington.

Though Jacksonville has one of the best specialist groups in the NFL with Josh Lambo and Logan Cooke, Vedvik is capable of playing both kicker and punter, giving him some versatility as a practice squad option.

The Jags have already signed a number of preseason contributors to the practice squad, including receivers Phillip Dorsett II and Laquon Treadwell. With the addition of Vedvik, the practice squad is now full and Jacksonville will not be able to add more players unless it releases someone or a player is signed to an active roster.
