Former Hawk Young signs with Jacksonville

Posted:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (KWWL) -

Former Hawkeye Albert Young has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Young played three years in Minnesota after graduating from the University of Iowa.

Young's 2010 season was cut short by injury after three games. His opportunity with Jacksonville  came after second-year defensive back Terrell Whitehead was placed on the waived/injured. Should Whitehead clear waivers he will be placed on injured reserve.

Young spent much of the summer as part of the NFL contingent that worked out with Eagles players at Evesham Memorial Sports Complex during the NFL lockout. Young will be one of four Jaguars players hoping to earn a backup role behind starter Maurice Jones-Drew.
