Thursday the team announced it has signed reserve linebacker and special teamer <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9992" target="_new">Brian Iwuh</a> to a three-year deal worth just over $3.5 million.</p> <p>Iwuh played in 15 games last season and was fourth on special teams with 12 tackles. He's played in 43 games since joining the club as a rookie free agent out of Colorado in 2006.</p> <p>The Jags now have only defensive end <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9799" target="_new">James Wyche</a> on the verge of restricted free agency.</p> <p>Under new GM Gene Smith, the team's first couple contracts have been smaller deals with lesser known guys.</p> <p>But some teams have successfully started rebuilds by strengthening and solidifying the bottom of the roster with role players. That looks like what the Jaguars are doing here, and securing a guy for three years instead of letting him get to unrestricted free agency in a year is a good play if you like him in his role.</p>
