Jaguars Sign OL Leonard Wester

The Jaguars have signed free agent offensive lineman Leonard Wester, the club announced today.

Wester spent the past three seasons with the Buccaneers before being non-tendered as a restricted free agent, and he’ll reunite with former Tampa Bay offensive line coach George Warhop, who now holds the same title in Jacksonville. While the Jaguars are set at left tackle with Cam Robinson, the club has a wide open slot on the right side following the release of Jermey Parnell, so Wester could compete for a starting job.

Wester, 26, went undrafted out of Missouri Western State in 2016. He’s appeared in 27 NFL games (all with the Buccaneers), but hasn’t been asked to play much of a significant role, as he’s made only one start during his career. In 2018, Wester played 116 offensive snaps, which marked a career-high, but Pro Football Focus assigned him a poor grade of 46.6 for his performance.

Before signing with the Jaguars, Wester also worked out for the Lions, Chiefs, and Falcons, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic (Twitter links).

    Not to be a jerk, but this isn’t really what I’m looking for when I follow the Chiefs on the app. Small gripe, otherwise great!

      Probably pretty boring after the usual police blotter links. Sorry couldn’t help myself there.

        Good point. But what Jed is referring to—and my first thought too—is this article is filed under “Chiefs”. The only news related to the Chiefs here is that he worked out for them. If that meets the criteria then these new posts are about to get out of control!

          This would be a no win situation for PFR because if they receive criticism for over tagging articles then the criticism for under tagging would be even more severe. It’s my understanding the mobile app costs users nothing so maybe they should appreciate that and learn to live with some imperfections.

            I don’t disagree. You make a good point. But, just because something is free doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be held to a certain standard. I love this app and appreciate the news being filtered so I can find news for my favorite teams quickly and efficiently.
