The Jaguars signed another defensive lineman. Surprisingly, he has never played for the Seahawks.

The Jaguars have announced they agreed to terms with former Steelers defensive lineman Ziggy Hood.

Hood never lived up to his billing in Pittsburgh, but the Jaguars aren’t putting that kind of first-round pressure on him.

He joins Red Bryant and Chris Clemons in an offseason overhaul, and should help firm up a team that made impressive strides over the second half of last season under coach Gus Bradley.
