The Jacksonville Jaguars announced the signing of eight players to futures contracts on Monday for the 2022 season.
The full list includes:
- WR Jeff Cotton Jr.
- RB Nathan Cottrell
- OL Coy Cronk
- WR Josh Hammond
- OL Jared Hocker
- WR Tim Jones
- DL Jeremiah Ledbetter
- OL Badara Traore
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Ledbetter, 27, is a former sixth-round pick by the Lions out of Arkansas in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie contract when he was waived coming out of the 2018 preseason.
Ledbetter signed on with the Buccaneers’ practice squad shortly after clearing waivers unclaimed. After a brief stint on the Ravens’ practice squad, he returned to Tampa Bay’s in 2019 and re-signed to a futures contract in the following year.
From there, Ledbetter returned to the Buccaneers and had a short stint with the Cardinals before joining the Jaguars midseason.
For his career, Ledbetter has appeared in 20 games and recorded 18 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.
