Jaguars sign veteran CB Blackmon, waive CB Burley
Blackmon has played in 43 games over six seasons with Green Bay and the New York Giants. He has 21 tackles, five fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.
He has averaged 9.5 yards on 67 punt returns and 20.7 yards on 81 kickoff returns. A fourth-round draft pick by the Packers in 2006, Blackmon joined the Giants in the middle of the 2010 season and spent parts of two seasons with the club. He was not on a roster in 2012 and spent the 2013 preseason with the Seattle Seahawks before being waived Tuesday.
Blackmon played three seasons at Boston College (2002-05), where he saw action as a defensive back and receiver.
