The Jacksonville Jaguars waived tight end Naz Bohannon after signing offensive lineman Darryl Williams.
Jacksonville announced the corresponding changes to its 90-man roster Sunday afternoon.
A standout basketball player at Youngstown State, Bohannon averaged 10.4 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in four seasons before moving to Clemson last year. The 6’6″, 228-pound forward is trying to follow in the footsteps of Jimmy Graham, Antonio Gates and other former basketball stars turned tight ends.
The New England Patriots eliminated Williams on Tuesday, about a month after he signed. He spent most of his NFL career on the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent from Mississippi State in 2020.
Jacksonville signed Evan Engram to give Trevor Lawrence another tight end target. Dan Arnold, acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints last season, remains with the team. Veteran Chris Manhertz and 2021 fifth-round pick Luke Farrell can compete for third-string duties and blocking assignments.
Luke Fortner, a rookie drafted in the third round, could start at center for Jacksonville. The Jaguars added veteran guard Brandon Scherff to the offensive line this offseason.
