Former Florida Gator defensive tackle Reggie McGrew, a former first round pick the San Francisco 49ers, was one of 10 players to sign free-agent contracts with the Jaguars on Thursday.
McGrew, 26, played in 22 games in 2000 and 2001 with the 49ers but was waived during training camp in 2002. He later spent two months with the Atlanta Falcons before being waived.
The 6-foot-1, 312-pound McGrew - selected by the 49ers in April of 1999 - was a first-team All-SEC selection in 1998 and a member of the Gators' 1996 national championship team.
The Jaguars also signed safety Abdual Howard, a former Florida State Seminole, running back David Allen, defensive end Lionel Barnes, tight end Matt Cercone, quarterback Quinn Gray, cornerback Jason Olford and wide receivers Francis St. Paul, Henry Douglas and Kerry Hood.
Howard, 24, was signed as an undrafted rookie by the Detroit Lions last season and served on the team's practice squad. The 6-1, 210 Howard was a member of the Seminoles' 1999 national championship team.

    Hufnagel spent one season with the Jaguars after coaching stints with the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.
