JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent running back Lavarus Giles and waived first-year running back D.D. Terry on Wednesday.
The team announced the signing of the 6-foot-1, 230-pound rookie from Jackson State. Giles was one of four players who participated in Jacksonville's two-day minicamp last weekend on a tryout basis.
He outperformed Terry and former Florida standout Ciatrick Fason, who also tried out. Giles had 514 yards rushing and five touchdowns as a senior last season.
Terry signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2007 from Sam Houston State and spent the season on the practice squad.
