The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to tinker with the tight end position.

For the fourth time in four weeks, the Jaguars have signed a new tight end to their active roster after announcing the signing of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions tight end Maurice Stovall.

To make room for Stovall, the Jaguars released the tight end they signed last week Stephan Spach.

Spach was signed to replace tight end Colin Cloherty who was signed to replace tight end Brett Brackett after he was injured after he replaced the oft injured Zach Miller.

Simply put, there has been a lot of turnover at the tight end position on the Jaguars roster.

Stovall, who was a wide receiver in college at Notre Dame before making the switch to tight end, should provide the Jaguars with more of a pass catching threat at the tight end position than Spach did.

Stovall also brings six years of NFL experience to the Jaguars roster and has 52 receptions for 668 yards and three touchdowns to his credit.

At 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Stovall provides another massive target over the middle like fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis. With both Lewis and Stovall on the field, the Jaguars offense should be able to create mismatches over the middle of the field against opposing linebackers.

That is all only if Stovall manages to hang around on the Jaguars roster for longer than one week.
