Jacksonville Jaguars sign Patrick Omameh

Another former Giants’ offensive lineman joins the Jaguars

NFL: New York Giants at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former New York Giants starting offensive lineman Patrick Omameh.

The Giants made Omameh one of their priority free agent signings, giving him a three-year, $15 million deal early in the 2018 free agent period. The Giants’ signed Omameh after letting Justin Pugh and D.J. Fluker leave in free agency as they sought to completely renovate their offensive line.

Omameh was eventually named the starting right guard following the 2018 NFL Draft and the selection of left guard Will Hernandez.

Unfortunately, things did not work out well for Omameh at right guard, and he showed the deficiencies when run blocking (namely, inability to use his hands) which caused the Jaguars to sign Andrew Norwell to replace him at left guard. Ultimately, Omameh was benched in favor of veteran John Greco and was released following the acquisition of Jamon Brown.

Omameh now re-joins the Jaguars, along with former Giants’ offensive tackle Ereck Flowers, who was signed by Jacksonville following his own benching and release earlier in the year.
