Eagles agreed to terms with C/G Stefen Wisniewski, formerly of the Jaguars, on a one-year contract.
A center for most of his career, Wisniewski is likely joining the Eagles to play left guard, a position he has not played since his rookie year in 2011. Wisniewski has been a solid, durable blocker throughout his career, and he will be a clear upgrade over former starter Allen Barbre. The Eagles entered free agency on a mission to upgrade their guard play, and they did it by adding Wisniewski and RG Brandon Brooks. With those two in the fold, the remade line should open the season with Jason Peters at left tackle, Wisniewski at left guard, Jason Kelce at center, Brooks at right guard, and Lane Johnson at right tackle.

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski visited the Eagles on Thursday.

The Eagles already have one of the best centers in the league in Jason Kelce, so Wisniewski would be a reserve. It's possible the Eagles are considering Wisniewski as a guard, a position he hasn't played since 2011. Wisniewski remained one of the league's better centers for the Jaguars last season.
Mar 31 - 5:00 PM

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski visited the Steelers recently.

It's Wisniewski's first known visit. There's still some uncertainty surrounding Maurkice Pouncey (leg) as he recovers from surgery, so it makes sense for the Steelers to explore backup options. The Browns could be interested as well after losing Alex Mack in free agency.
Mar 25 - 4:59 PM

Jaguars GM David Caldwell said the door is not closed on re-signing free agent C Stefen Wisniewski.

After missing out on Alex Mack (Falcons), the Jaguars could see Wisniewski as a fallback option. Brandon Linder is also an option at center, but he will likely be tabbed with replacing Zane Beadles at left guard. Going on 27, Wisniewski is looking for a long-term deal after playing on a prove-it deal last year.
Mar 10 - 1:41 PM

The Browns have expressed interest in free agent C Stefen Wisniewski.

Wisniewski played for new Browns coach Hue Jackson in Oakland. He should be viewed as a fallback option if Cleveland isn't able to re-sign Alex Mack.
Mar 7 - 4:55 PM

Jaguars GM David Caldwell admitted impending free agent C Stefen Wisniewski is likely headed to the open market.

"I talked to [Wisniewski] Tuesday, and we had a good talk, and we’ll see where it goes," Caldwell said. "Chances are, he’ll hit the market." Forced to take a one-year deal last offseason because of shoulder surgery, Wisniewski is likely looking for a long-term contract this time around. He will likely find one.
Feb 25 - 8:54 AM

Stefen Wisniewski has been named the Jaguars' starting center.

The Raiders' starter each of the past four years, Wisniewski has beaten out 2014 fifth-rounder Luke Bowanko. Wisniewski has 61 games of starting experience, and was always likely to get the nod. That being said, he was more effective in 2013 than 2014.

Stefen Wisniewski started at center in the Jaguars' second preseason game.

Wisniewski is battling Luke Bowanko for the starting job. Bowanko started the preseason opener, and coach Gus Bradley said the pair could share snaps with the first team in the third preseason game. If he is healthy following shoulder surgery late last year, Wisniewski should win the job.

The Florida Times Union said the Jaguars' starting center position is Stefan Wisniewski's "to lose."

He has the edge on incumbent Luke Bowanko. Wisniewski was the first-team center at the Jags' first shoulder-padded practice, and again for their first practice in full pads. The 26-year-old underwent shoulder surgery late last season but it hasn't been an issue at camp. Wisniewski finished with PFF's 22nd highest center grade out of 41 qualifiers in 2014.

Jaguars C Stefen Wisniewski (shoulder surgery) is unlikely to be ready until training camp.

Wisniewski is six months into his rehab. There was hope he would be available for June’s minicamp, but the Jaguars have no need to rush their $2.5 million investment. When healthy, Wisniewski projects as the favorite to start at center after Luke Bowanko struggled mightily there as a rookie.

New Jaguars C Stefen Wisniewski says his recovery from January shoulder surgery is "going well."

Wisniewski is nearing the end of a five-month rehab. He'll be ready for training camp, and should participate in June's mandatory minicamp. Although Wisniewski says he'll have to compete for the Jaguars' center duties, the job is his.

Jaguars signed C Stefen Wisniewski, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, the deal is of the "prove it" variety after Wisniewski struggled to find the money he was looking for. Barely 26 and with four years of above-average tape already in hand, Wisniewski is a great bet to rehab his value and come back in a stronger negotiating position next offseason. Wisniewski should slide into center beside LG Zane Beadles and RG Brandon Linder with Luke Joeckel starting at left tackle and newly-signed Jermey Parnell holding down the right side. The Jags suddenly have the makings of a solid offensive line. After flirting with DeMarco Murray in free agency, expect Jacksonville to use an early-round draft pick at running back.

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski visited the Redskins last Friday.

The ex-Raider has had visits or talked to the Rams, Bucs, Seahawks, Patriots, Titans, Jaguars and now Redskins. Washington's interest is a bit surprising as they already have solid Kory Lichtensteiger at center. Perhaps they're looking at Wisniewski as a guard.
Tue, Apr 14, 2015 07:29:00 AM

Free agent C Stefen Wisniewski is visiting the Titans Monday.

Believe it or not, there's a Wisniewski sweepstakes going on. He's drawn known interest from the Rams, Bucs, Seahawks, Patriots and Jaguars already. Brian Schwenke is currently the Titans center.
Mon, Apr 6, 2015 10:20:00 AM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says the team is in a "holding pattern" with free agent C Stefen Wisniewski.

"We will have more conversations about him," Bradley said. Wisniewski visited the Jags on Wednesday, and has recently met with the Patriots. He'd immediately slide in as the starter ahead of second-year pro Luke Bowanko in Jacksonville.
