JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed unrestricted free-agent center Stefan Wisniewski to a one-year contract, providing them with much-needed line depth.

Wisniewski started 61 games - 46 at center and 15 at guard - over the past four seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

A second-round draft pick in 2011, the 6-foot-3, 307-pound Wisniewski played under current Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson the last two seasons in Oakland. He started all 16 games at center in 2014 and was part of an offensive line that allowed the sixth fewest sacks (28) in the league.

Hernandez guilty, gets life in prison

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) Even after he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole, former New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez is nowhere near done with his legal troubles. He still faces double murder charges in Boston, as well as civil lawsuits over the killings and a lawsuit in Florida from a former friend who said he was shot in the face and left for dead after arguing with Hernandez.
