The Jaguars invited former Washington State defensive end Mkristo Bruce in for a workout yesterday, with the possible hopes of bolstering their pass rush for Saturday night's playoff game against the New England Patriots.
Bruce is a 6'6", 270 lb. defensive end that spent part of the 2007 season on the Oakland Raiders practice squad. Bruce was a first-team all Pac-10 selection in both his junior and senior seasons of 2005 and 2006, and won the Leon Bender Defensive Lineman of the Year Award in 2005. Bruce's practice squad contract expired at the end of the season and is currently a free agent.
If the Jaguars do ink Bruce to a deal, they will likely make either one of two moves to accommodate him on the roster. Sources say that the team will either release little used wide receiver/kick returner Chad Owens, or send former starting middle linebacker Mike Peterson to the injured reserve, as he went down during a November game against San Diego with a broken hand and hasn't played since.
