JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars brought back Ernest Wilford on Tuesday, giving him a chance to make the roster as a tight end.

Career Statistics:
Receptions: 144
Yards: 2,019
Touchdowns: 14

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Wilford, a fourth-round draft pick by the Jaguars in 2004, left Jacksonville after four seasons and signed a lucrative deal with Miami. But the Dolphins, who gave Wilfork $6 million guaranteed, terminated his contract Monday after he caught just three passes for 25 yards last season.

Wilford moved from wide receiver to tight end this year and had a 33-yard touchdown reception against the Jaguars' reserves in the Dolphins' preseason opener. He had no catches in the second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

The Jaguars waived defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis to make roster room for Wilford.
