Couch, who the Cleveland Browns selected with the No. 1 pick in the '99 draft, comes to the Jaguars with the understanding that he'll battle incumbent Quinn Gray for the No. 3 quarterback spot with the club, once Gray recovers from his current ankle injury. "He's got an opportunity to come in here like anybody else who's in camp," Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. "His first opportunity is to make the football team." The Jaguars want four quarterbacks in training camp with the special emphasis the team has placed on improving its passing game. With Gray currently on the PUP list, it left just starter Byron Leftwich, backup David Garrard and rookie Lester Ricard as active quarterbacks. Teams generally like having four QBs in training camp to prevent one of the top signal callers from getting a sore arm. "We're a little short at that position right now with Quinn down, so we added a fourth quarterback," Del Rio said. "At some point, Quinn will get healthy and at that point, we'll deal with the numbers. "We've added an experienced quarterback to come in and give us an opportunity to throw the football like we need to in this camp." How effective Couch will be is questionable. He has been out of the NFL since Green Bay released him before the 2004 season.
