Jags announce signings of Niles Paul and Don Carey

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed 10th-year S Don Carey and eighth-year TE Niles Paul 

"There is a bit of nostalgia returning to the stadium today, but so much has changed that it still feels brand new to me," said Carey. “I am excited about this opportunity and I am excited to be back here in Jacksonville. It feels great to be in a place where a team truly wants you and values you. I am extremely excited to be here and can’t wait to get the ball rolling.”

 Carey, 31, has appeared in 99 career games with 22 starts and has previously spent time with Detroit and Jacksonville, after originally being drafted by Cleveland in the sixth round (177th overall) in the 2009 NFL Draft.

“This is a fresh start for me in Jacksonville and an amazing opportunity to continue to do the thing that I love, and that is football,” said Paul. “This is a good fit for me for a lot of different reasons, with special teams being the primary reason. I also look at it as an opportunity to showcase my abilities as an offensive weapon. I’m excited to get started.”

 Paul, 28, has appeared in 82 games with 36 starts for the Redskins after originally being drafted in the fifth round (155th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by Washington.
