Jaguars sign FB Tommy Bohanon, WR Larry Pinkard
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Tommy Bohanon, giving them a fullback on their roster for the first time in three years.
The Jaguars, who are expected to be more committed to the ground game under new coach Doug Marrone, opted not to carry a blocking back the past two seasons. They instead used tight ends and extra linemen in short-yardage and goal-line situations.
Jets waive fullback Julian Howsare after 2 games
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have waived fullback Julian Howsare, who surprisingly beat out veteran Tommy Bohanon for a roster spot in training camp.
The move Thursday leaves the Jets without a fullback on their roster. New York did not immediately announce a corresponding move.
Howsare, a converted linebacker from Clarion University, was signed as an undrafted free agent last year. He spent most of last season on the Jets' practice squad.
