AP source: Jaguars to sign Thomas, 5 others in free agency

A person familiar with the negotiations says the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with former Denver tight end Julius Thomas and five other free agents.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the moves.

Jacksonville also struck deals Tuesday with former Miami defensive end Jared Odrick, former Dallas right tackle Jermey Parnell, former Green Bay cornerback Davon House, former San Francisco linebacker Dan Skuta and former Indianapolis free safety Sergio Brown.

It was one of the largest free-agent spending sprees in franchise history.

Jacksonville, which went 9-39 the last three years, had nearly $70 million in salary cap space and planned to spend much of it to land much-needed talent in free agency.

The Jaguars also re-signed exclusive rights free agent offensive lineman Austin Pasztor.
