Jaguars sign WR Conley, OL Ogbuehi, LB Ryan

The Jacksonville Jaguars stayed busy in free agency, announcing the signings of wide receiver.Chris Conley and offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi on Saturday. NFL Media also reported that the Jaguars were signing linebacker Jake Ryan.

The moves follow the Jaguars' big free-agent splash when they signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles on Wednesday. Contract terms for the three players were not announced.

Conley, 26, played for the Kansas City Chiefs over his first four seasons, making 104 catches for 1,238 yards and six touchdowns. He emerged as a scoring target for Patrick Mahomes last season, catching 32 passes for 334 yards and five touchdowns. Conley and Foles were teammates in Kansas City in 2016, and the wide receiver cited the signing of Foles as a big factor in his decision.

"There was opportunity here to begin with, but then the addition of him at quarterback ... that sealed the deal for me," Conley said. Ogbuehi figures to replace offensive tackle Jermey Parnell, who was released as part of the Jaguars' efforts to free up money for Foles.

Ogbuehi, 26, started 25 of 35 games over his first four seasons, all with the Cincinnati Bengals, but appeared in just two games last season. A Texas A&M product, he was the Bengals' first-round draft pick in 2015. Ryan, 27, had been with the Green Bay Packers since they made him a fourth-round pick in 2015.

Ryan ranked third on the team with 81 tackles in 2017, but spent last season on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in training camp. In 43 games (27 starts), he tallied 213 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. --Field Level Media
