McDaniel latest member of Jaguars to agree to extension

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Tony McDaniel agreed to a contract extension Wednesday, the team's third player to get a new deal in the past week.

Height: 6-7

Weight: 310

Season: 3

College: Tennessee

Defensive tackle Rob Meier and offensive tackle Richard Collier signed extensions last week.

McDaniel, a 6-foot-7, 310-pound backup entering his third season, is expected to play a more significant role this fall with the departure of Marcus Stroud and Grady Jackson.

McDaniel has 25 tackles and a sack the last two years. He missed the final 12 games last season after suffering a wrist injury.

Details of McDaniel's new contract were not released.
