Jaguars Get Defensive End Signed

Finally, the Jaguars signed a defensive end. No, it's not Derrick Harvey. Jacksonville inked former Titans fourth-round pick (2004) Bo Schobel when defensive end James Wyche was lost for the year with an Achilles injury.

Bo Schobel has been the definition of a journeyman as he's played for now four teams since 2004, and he's becoming very familiar with the AFC South, as he began his career with Tennessee, where he played two seasons before landing in Indianapolis in 2006, and after a one-year stint in Arizona in which he played in just two games, he's now in Jacksonville. Is Houston next?

The 6'5", 268 lb. defensive end starred at TCU, but hasn't experienced much success in the NFL. Schobel has started just two games and played in 29, and has 35 career tackles and 1.5 sacks with a forced fumble.

The injury to James Wyche will likely mark the end of his Jaguars career, as through three seasons he's yet to play in a regular season game. Wyche was having the best camp of his career prior to his injury, and his injury is definitely disappointing for a Jaguars team that has been desperately looking for help at defensive end.

The Derrick Harvey holdout situation remains at a stand still, but Harvey and his agent Ken Kremer appear to be gaining slightly more leverage as injuries to the Jaguars defensive line pile up.
