JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars wasted little time upgrading their offensive line in free agency.
Just days after cutting starting guard Uche Nwaneri for performance reasons, the Jaguars agreed to terms with former Denver Broncos guard Zane Beadles.
Beadles was en route to Jacksonville on Tuesday afternoon, and pending a physical, was expected to sign a five-year deal worth $30 million. General manager Dave Caldwell says, "He could really flourish with us."
A second-round draft pick from Utah in 2010, Beadles started 62 games for Denver the last four years. He didn't miss a single snap last season.
The Jaguars also announced they re-signed cornerback Will Blackmon to a two-year deal, traded quarterback Blaine Gabbert to San Francisco for a sixth-round draft pick and scheduled a visit with free-agent linebacker Dekoda Watson.
