Lee, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2018. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,601,544 that included $141,544 in guarantees when Jacksonville elected to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

The Jaguars re-signed Lee to their practice squad before promoting him in December of last year. Jacksonville waived Lee a few weeks ago. 

During his college career at Tulane and Nebraska, Lee threw for 6,744 yards while completing 55.2 percent of his passes to go along with 46 touchdowns and 37 interceptions.

Vedvik, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.

The Ravens traded Vedvik to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick, but he was cut loose after only a few weeks. New York claimed Vedvik off of waivers before waiving him a few weeks into the regular season. 

During his college career at Marshall, Vedvik converted 10 of 16 field goal attempts (62.5 percent) to go along with 41 of 42 extra point tries (97.6 percent) over the course of 26 games.

Nelson, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year rookie contract before signing on with the Raiders this past March. 

The Raiders released Nelson last month. 

In 2019, Nelson has appeared in two games for the Raiders and caught four passes for 36 yards receiving and one touchdown.
