JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Two days after wrapping up a dozen-player NFL draft class, the Jaguars announced the additions of 18 free agents signings.

Florida receiver Josh Hammond is likely the most recognizable name among the 18 players. Five signees were defensive players, but the bulk of Monday’s additions came on the offensive side of the ball.

To make room on the roster, the Jaguars released kicker Jon Brown, linebacker Austin Calitro, offensive lineman Donnell Greene, receiver Charone Peake and receiver/cornerback Jayson Stanley.

Among the 12 draft selections this year included first-round picks CJ Henderson of Florida and K’Lavon Chaisson of LSU. Oakleaf High School graduate Shaquille Quarterman, a Miami product, was a fourth-round pick.
