Jaguars expected to sign Zane Beadles


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will fill one of their biggest needs on the roster with the expected signing of offensive guard Zane Beadles.

Beadles agreed to a 5-year deal with $30 million with $13 million guaranteed according to reports. He made just $630,000 last season as a member of the Denver Broncos, the lowest amount on their offensive line.

Beadles was drafted by the Broncos in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He began his career as a right tackle before making the move to left guard.

Beadles is expected to replace Uche Nwaneri, who was released by the Jags earlier this month.
