Jaguars Sign OL Guy Whimper

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced the signing of free agent offensive lineman Guy Whimper.

Linebacker Eric Alexander has been placed on waivers to add Whimper to the 53-man roster.

A fourth-round pick (129th overall) out of East Carolina by the New York Giants in 2006, Whimper (6-5, 302) appeared in 30 games between the 2006, 2007, and 2009 seasons, all with the Giants. Whimper missed the 2008 season with a foot injury.

Whimper was not eligible for unrestricted free agency this off-season, and was tendered at the "Original Round" level by the Giants. Whimper was released by the Giants as part of their final training camp roster cuts.

The Jaguars also re-signed wide receiver Clarence Denmark to the practice squad. Wide receiver Lance Long was released from the practice squad, leaving one spot open.
