Seward stays in division, joins Jags

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Adam Seward didn't cut it as depth for the Colts, but the Jaguars will now give him a try.

The team just announced they signed the veteran free-agent linebacker, who was a fifth-round pick by Carolina in 2005, where he played in 40 games in four seasons.

Jacksonville also re-signed rookie wide receiver Maurice Dupree and waived linebacker Lamar Miles and receiver Andy Strickland.

Seward signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts on March 20 and was waived on August 22.

The Jaguars like their starting linebacker trio -- Daryl Smith, Justin Durant and Clint Ingram -- but don't have fantastic depth behind them. They are also playing some 3-4, which gives Quentin Groves opportunities to function as a linebacker.

I didn't notice Seward much when I watched the Colts practice. It will be interesting to see what sort of impression he can make with the Jaguars.
