Jaguars, Stefen Wisniewski strike one-year deal

The Jacksonville Jaguars have landed a new center.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that the team is signing former Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year, $2.5 million deal, according to a source involved with the negotiations. 

After 61 starts in Oakland, the fifth-year pivot never landed the cash he was hoping for in free agency on the heels of offseason shoulder surgery. Still, chalk it up as a quality signing for Jacksonville. Wisniewski projects as an immediate starter alongside guards Brandon Linder and Zane Beadles. The Jaguars also added former Cowboys tackle Jermey Parnell to start on the right side across from bookend Luke Joeckel.

Center Luke Bowanko, last year's sixth-round pick, showed moments of promise last season, but the Jaguars desperately needed to upgrade a front five that allowed a league-high 71 sacks last season.
