Jaguars sign former Packer Aaron Kampman

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have taken a step toward solving their pass-rushing problems by signing free agent Aaron Kampman.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end in eight seasons with Green Bay signed with the Jaguars on Sunday.

He should boost a pass rush that ranked last in the NFL with a franchise-low 14 sacks. The sack total is the fifth-lowest in NFL history

The signing of 30-year-old Kampman also sends a strong message to former first-round draft pick Derrick Harvey and second-rounder Quentin Groves, who both struggled in their two seasons.

Kampman has 54 career sacks. He's tied for fifth in the NFL from 2006 to 2009 with 40.5 sacks.

The length and terms of the contract are undisclosed.
