JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars signed veteran Marcellus Wiley to a one-year contract Wednesday, adding another free agent end to their defensive front.

"If everything works out though, (the deal) could be for much longer by the end of the year," Wiley's agent Brad Blank said.
The 6-foot-4, 278-pound Wiley joins Jacksonville after one disappointing season in Dallas. He will likely start opposite fellow free agent end Reggie Hayward.

The Jaguars' line is already anchored by Pro Bowl tackles Marcus Stroud and John Henderson. Converted linebacker Greg Favors was the team's top pass rusher last year after injuries depleted the line.

Wiley had 37 tackles with three sacks and 11 quarterback pressures for the Cowboys. A Pro Bowler with San Diego in 2001, Wiley has 387 tackles and 44 sacks in eight seasons with Buffalo, San Diego and Dallas.

Wiley, 30, signed a four-year, $16 million deal with the Cowboys last March, but he had no sacks through the first 10 games and was benched in passing situations and was released Feb. 22. Wiley said the team wasn't using him as promised.
