Veteran LB Gilbert returns for second stint with Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Veteran linebacker Tony Gilbert is returning to the Jaguars.

Gilbert signed with the team Sunday, giving it a proven special teams ace. The Jaguars also signed linebacker Kris Griffin and defensive tackle Leger Douzable.

The team waived wide receiver Nate Hughes, safety Terrell Whitehead and offensive lineman Andrew Crummey to make roster room.

Gilbert spent five seasons with the Jaguars from 2003 to 2007 and played in 56 games. He led the team with a career-high 16 special teams tackles in 2006. He spent the past two seasons in Atlanta, where he primarily saw action on special teams for the Falcons.

Griffin has played in 46 games with the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns, but he hasn't played since 2008. Douzable has spent time with the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams.
