JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed offensive tackle Herb Taylor and tight end Stephen Spach, and cut receiver Brian Robiskie and tight end Colin Cloherty.
The Jaguars needed immediate help on the offensive line and wanted to upgrade the tight end position.
A sixth-round draft pick in 2007, Taylor has spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. Spach has 22 receptions for 137 yards in seven seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (2005), New England Patriots (2007-08), Arizona Cardinals (2008-10) and St. Louis Rams (2011).
Robiskie became expendable with the emergence of youngsters Kevin Elliott and Cecil Shorts, who caught four passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in the season opener.
Jacksonville waived Cloherty in final cuts and then brought him back because of injuries.
