The Jacksonville Jaguars officially placed TE Zach Conque on injured reserve Thursday after he passed through waivers unclaimed.
Conque, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Stephen F. Austin last year. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Texans cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
Conque later signed on to the Jets’ practice squad before he was released later on in the season. The Jaguars signed him to a contract a few weeks ago before waiving him with an injury designation on Wednesday.
During his college career between Texans-San Antonio and Stephen F. Austin, Conque played quarterback and threw for 6,867 yards while completing 57.3 percent of his passes to go along with 46 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. he also rushed for 1,605 yards and 34 touchdowns over the course of 36 games.
