Jaguars bring back Wilford

Aug 25, 2009 - 6:33 PM JACKSONVILLE, Fla.(AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed Ernest Wilford on Tuesday, giving him a chance to make the roster as a tight end.

The team also waived defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis.

Wilford, a fourth-round draft pick by the Jaguars in 2004, left Jacksonville after four seasons and signed a lucrative deal with Miami.

The Dolphins, who gave him $6 million guaranteed, terminated his contract Monday. He was Miami's biggest free-agent bust in the Bill Parcells regime.

Wilford caught just three passes for 25 yards last season. He moved from receiver to tight end this year and had a 33-yard touchdown reception against Jacksonville's reserves in the preseason opener. He had no catches in the second preseason game.
