DT Kennedy signs Jags' offer sheet

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy has signed a one-year offer sheet with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the veteran minimum of $605,000. The deal includes a $50,000 signing bonus making it worth $655,000.

The Bears have the right of first refusal, a clause negotiated into his contract when he signed with them in December. The Bears wanted him to sign a two-year deal and when he balked they included this provision.

The Bears have until Monday to match the offer or decline it. It’s unlikely Kennedy will be a Bear.

Nothing to worry about.Hes St.Louis Trash anyways.Probably would have been cut by the end of training camp.Matt Toeiana now has a little of a chance to step up where he left off.He made some good plays and brought some good energy to the mix.If he makes it after 2nd cuts I think he could be a allright 4th DT.

Agreed. Let Toeiana show what he can do. He did some nice things and supposedly the Bengals strongly regret letting this guy go off their practice squad.
