Chinese placekicker Long Ding plans to attend the Jaguars' rookie minicamp.
Ding is from Quing Dao and participated in the New York regional combine prior to the draft. He was a two-time conference special teams player of the year at Norwich University after first playing football in 2007. He attended the Northfield, Vermont, military college, and helped the Cadets to their first NCAA postseason berth.
Ding, 6-0, 209 pounds, made a 51-yard field goal and was perfect inside of 40 yards last season.
Jaguars' kicker Josh Scobee continues to avoid team workouts because he's unhappy Jacksonville designated him a franchise player in free agency.
