JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Special teams standout Montell Owens signed a contract extension with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday.
Owens, an undrafted rookie from Maine who made the roster in 2006, was captain of the special teams unit last season and has a team-high 45 special teams tackles over the last three years. The 5-foot-10, 225-pound Owens also served as a backup fullback.
Owens got his most extensive playing time in 2008 after starter Greg Jones suffered a season-ending ankle injury in early December. Owens finished the year with three touchdowns, two rushing and a fumble return for a score.
Details of his extension were not released.
