Well-traveled kicker Brandon Coutu signed with the Jaguars on Monday, continuing an NFL career that's seen him sign with three teams, but play just one game.
Coutu, a former All-SEC honorable mention selection at Georgia, was drafted by the Seahawks in 2008 and made the team's 53-man roster, but never saw game action. He did not play football in 2009 or 2010 before returning to the NFL in 2011. Coutu spent time with the Seahawks and Jaguars' practice squads last season before finally being signed to the Bills' active roster on December 28. He played in the season finale against the Patriots, connecting on all three of his extra-point attempts and missing a 45-yard field goal attempt in a 49-21 loss.
To make room for Coutu on the roster, the Jaguars waived rookie free agent cornerback Dontrell Johnson.
