The Jacksonville Jaguars brought in 12 players for tryouts on Friday, according to Ryan O’Halloran, including P Matt Darr and QB Joel Stave.

The full list of players who tried out for the Jaguars includes:

  1. WR Montay Crockett
  2. P Matt Darr

  12. QB Joel Stave

Jaguars special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis told reporters on Thursday (via Mike Kaye of First Coast News) that they are constantly keeping an eye out for available kickers and punters, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Darr, 25, wound up signing on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee back in 2015. He was in the final year of his three-year, $1.576 million contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season when the Dolphins elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2016, Darr appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and totaled 3,691 yards on 90 attempts (41.01 YPA) to go along with five touchbacks.

Stave, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, waived at the start of the regular season before signing on to the Vikings’ practice squad.

The Vikings cut Stave loose back in November of last year and he later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad after clearing waivers. Stave didn’t last long with the Seahawks but was eventually signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad where he finished out the season.

Kansas City elected to move on from Stave as they cut their roster down to 53 players.

During his four-year college career, Stave threw for 7,635 yards while completing 59.5 percent of his passes to go along with 48 touchdowns and 37 interception
