Jaguars agreed to terms with RT Jermey Parnell on a five-year, $32 million contract with $13 million guaranteed.
Parnell entered the league as a Saints UDFA in 2009 with no position. He bounced around practice squads before finding a home in Dallas as a tackle and made his first NFL start in 2012. Parnell has started just six more games since then, splitting time with Doug Free at Dallas' right tackle spot last season. It's a risky signing by the cap-rich Jags and likely a case of them overpaying to land their man. Parnell, entering his age-29 season, was our No. 8 free agent tackle available. The Cowboys re-signed Free for three years and $15 million. Mar 9 - 11:08 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent RT Jermey Parnell "has told friends" he plans to sign with the Jaguars.

The Jaguars will be banking on Parnell making the jump to full-time starter after he split time with Doug Free in Dallas last season. He's made just seven career starts since entering the league in 2009, but will more than likely be getting paid like a starter. The Jaguars would be wise to have a backup plan in place.

Free agent RT Jermey Parnell has drawn interest from the Jets.

Parnell's market has been developing the past couple days, with the Jets joining the Redskins, Bucs, Jaguars, and Titans having been linked to the 29-year-old. Parnell has never been a full-time starter in the league, as he has just seven starts under his belt since 2009. But he's going to be paid like one.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo names the Redskins, Bucs, and Jaguars as teams that will pursue free agent RT Jermey Parnell.

All three teams are right tackle needy. With Derek Newton, Doug Free, and King Dunlap all staying put, Parnell is suddenly a top-five offensive tackle in free agency. Parnell has started seven games since entering the NFL in 2009.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky believes the Titans will be interested in free agent RT Jermey Parnell.

With the Cowboys re-signing Doug Free, Parnell will likely be allowed to hit the open market. He played well as Free's replacement late in the season and should find a lot of interest in an extremely thin offensive tackle market. The Titans are on the hunt for a right tackle after cutting Michael Oher in February.

Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones says OT Jermey Parnell is ready to "take the next step" if Doug Free refuses a pay cut and is released.

"I think he is getting better," Jones said. "I think his arrow so to speak is going up. I feel good about where he is." Parnell started one game last season at right tackle, but he and Free rotated snaps for the final five weeks. It might not be a given that the Cowboys sign a veteran free agent like RT Eric Winston if Free ends up getting the ax, especially if they continue to wait for Free to budge.

Cowboys re-signed OT Jermey Parnell to a three-year contract.

The deal includes a $1 million signing bonus. An undrafted free agent in 2009, Parnell bounced around practice squads before finally appearing in his first six career games for the Cowboys last season. He'll have an inside track on a roster spot, and should compete to be the Cowboys' third tackle in training camp.

Cowboys signed OT Jermey Parnell off the Saints' practice squad.

He'll take the roster spot of the recently released Michael Hamlin. A former college basketball player, Parnell has been moved from defensive end to tight end to eventually the offensive line.

Dolphins waived OT Jeremy Parnell.

Parnell was waived to make room on the 53-man roster for OT Patrick Brown, who the team claimed off waivers from the Jets earlier this week. Parnell, a four year player on the basketball team at Ole Miss, started 2009 as a defensive end on the Saints' practice squad, moved to tight end, and ultimately landed at offensive tackle before being placed on waivers in September.

Dolphins claimed OT Jermey Parnell off waivers from the Saints.

Parnell is a developmental project who's too light in the pants at this point to block an NFL defensive end. Ex-OL coach Tony Sparano will give him a look.
