Jaguars Sign Todd Boeckman

Former Ohio State quarterback Todd Boeckman, who was not offered a contract by the Cincinnati Bengals after attending their rookie minicamp, signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, June 17.

The 25-year-old St. Henry native started the first three games of his senior season last year before Terrelle Pryor took over. Boeckman threw 31 career touchdown passes in 27 games.

Cleo Lemon backed up David Garrard last season, but the Jaguars parted ways with Lemon on Wednesday, leaving the backup job to veteran Todd Bouman. Boeckman will compete for the No. 3 spot.
