For the second week in a row, the Jaguars have added a backup quarterback.
Following their signing of Todd Bouman last week, the Jaguars signed former Rams QB Keith Null on Monday. Null was released by St. Louis at the end of training camp. He started four games for the Rams in 2009, throwing three TDs and nine interceptions. At 25, he is by far the youngest QB on the Jaguars' roster.
To create a roster spot for Null, Jacksonville released CB Michael Coe. The team also waived TE Ernest Wilford and re-signed FS Gerald Alexander. QB Brett Ratliff was waived from the practice squad.
The way we see it
As long as starter David Garrard struggles, head coach Jack Del Rio will continue to bring in signalcallers to challenge him. Null, who was a sixth-round pick by the Rams in 2009 that was made available when the team drafted Sam Bradford, is not likely to start this year as he learns the team's offensive system. Coe sealed his fate when he was burned by Eagles WR DeSean Jackson for a 61-yard touchdown in the first quarter of the Jaguars' Week Three loss.
