The Jaguars continue to re-build their offense with the signing of wide receiver Chris Conley and offensive lineman Cedric Ogbuehi, the team announced Saturday.
Conley was the third-leading receiver on 2018 AFC runner-up Kansas City. A third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2015, Conley caught 32 passes for 334 yards and five touchdowns last season. He played college ball at the University of Georgia for Mark Richt, tallying 657 receiving yards and eight touchdowns his senior season. Conley holds the NFL Combine record for receivers in the vertical leap (45 inches).
Conley previously played with new-Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles during the 2016 season.
“This is a tremendous opportunity,” Conley said. “Playing with someone you know [in Nick Foles] is one thing, but seeing the talent that we have here in Jacksonville on defense and the talent we have on offense – it’s huge.”
Ogbuehi (oh-BWAY-hee) is a former first-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals. He has appeared in 35 career games with 25 career starts at tackle, but appeared in only two games during the 2018 season. He started 13 of 14 games in 2017 and 12 of 14 in 2016.
Ogbuehi played both guard and tackle at Texas A&M. He earned first-team All-American Walter Camp honors his senior year at left tackle -- after playing right tackle his junior year and guard his sophomore and red-shirt freshman campaigns.
The Jaguars started 12 different offensive linemen in 2018 due to injuries. They re-signed right guard A.J. Cann earlier this week to a three-year deal, and are set to return the entire left side of their offensive line. Those four linemen were part of a Jaguars' offensive line that ranked in the top-10 in 2017 in least sacks allowed.
