Jags bring in OL Beadles
Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Jacksonville Jaguars signed offensive guard Zane Beadles to a contract on Wednesday.
No terms of the deal were announced, but multiple media outlets reported the pact to be worth $30 million over five years.
Beadles spent the last four seasons in Denver and has played in 64 consecutive games to begin his career since being drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
In 2013, the 27-year-old Beadles started all 16 games for the third straight season and was part of an offensive unit that allowed just 20 sacks, the fewest in the NFL.
Also Wednesday, the Jaguars announced the signings of former Vikings running back Toby Gerhart and former Tampa Bay linebacker Dekoda Watson.
Best known for backing up Adrian Peterson during his four years in the league, Gerhart was a Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2009 when he ran for 27 touchdowns as a senior at Stanford. He also won the Doak Walker award for best running back in the nation that year.
Gerhart was selected in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft by Minnesota. In his career, he's racked up 1,305 yards and five touchdowns on 276 carries.
Watson, 26, has spent his entire four-year career with the Bucs, racking up 76 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception in 60 games, including six starts.
