Jaguars bring back veteran linebacker Lerentee McCray

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing back veteran linebacker Lerentee McCray.

McCray signed with the Jaguars on Monday. He had been an unrestricted free agent after signing a one-year deal with Jacksonville in 2017.

McCray says he’s “been waiting to find a home and I’m excited to be back here and finish the unfinished business that we left last year.”

The 6-foot-3, 249-pound McCray recorded a career-high nine special teams tackles in 13 games last season. He previously spent time with Buffalo and Green Bay after signing as an undrafted rookie with Denver in 2013.

McCray has played in 50 games over five seasons, notching 28 tackles and three sacks.

McCray won a Super Bowl in 2015 with the Broncos and was a key member of special teams, where he played for current Jaguars special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis.
