Jaguars Worked Out LBs Stephone Anthony & Zach Vigil

According to Howard Balzer, the Jacksonville Jaguars worked out free agent linebackers Stephone Anthony and Zach Vigil on Wednesday in addition to the three players they signed. 

The Jaguars agreed to sign Ramik Wilson, Najee Goode and D.J. Alexander yesterday.

Jacksonville is clearly trying to make a concerted effort to improve at linebacker this year. 

Anthony, 26, is a former first-round pick out of Clemson by the Saints in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Dolphins acquired him from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2017.

The Dolphins declined to pick up Anthony’s fifth-year option last year and he played out the final year of his four-year, $7.731 million rookie contract.

In 2018, Anthony appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded four tackles.

Vigil, 27, wound up signing a three-year, $1.585 million contract with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State back in 2015. He managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his two seasons in the NFL but was, unfortunately, cut loose and later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Washington waived Vigil coming out of the preseason and he later had a brief stint on the Bills’ practice squad before returning to Washington last year. 

In 2018, Vigil appeared in 14 games for the Redskins and recorded seven tackles.
