The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed right guard A.J. Cann, the team announced Wednesday, to help protect their investment in new franchise quarterback Nick Foles. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the 27-year-old lineman agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal.
A third-round pick in 2015, Cann has started 59 of his 60 games with the Jaguars. The 6-foot-3, 325-pounder led the offence with 934 snaps and was penalized only twice in 15 starts last season, once each for holding and a false start.
Jacksonville signed Foles on Wednesday to a reported four-year, $88 million contracts with $50 million guaranteed.
