Jaguars Sign Ashton Youboty, George Selvie
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed cornerback Ashton Youboty and defensive end George Selvie.
Youboty is expected to help fill the void left after starter Rashean Mathis was placed on injured reserve. Will Middleton will replace Mathis in the starting lineup Sunday at Cleveland, and Youboty will serve as a backup.
Youboty, a third-round pick by Buffalo in 2006, played in 44 games for the Bills. He spent the preseason with Tampa Bay. He has 54 tackles, two sacks and an interception.
Selvie, a seventh-round pick by St. Louis in 2010, played in 16 games as a rookie. He was claimed off waivers by Carolina in September and played in four games. Selvie could help fill in for starter Aaron Kampman, who has missed time with knee and hamstring injuries.
