Former Nacogdoches star signs with Jaguars

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Former Nacogdoches high school star Kynan Forney signs with the Jacksonville Jaguars just three days after being released by the San Diego Chargers. 

The nine year veteran seem to have a strong strangle hold on the starting right guard position for the bolts but a nagging neck injury always seemed to linger causing him to miss repetitions.

Although Forney did not play a snap for the Chargers last season he signed a two year contract this offseason worth $4.8 million dollars.

He eventually lost his grasp on the position because he could not get back on the field. Losing out to Louis Vasquez the Chargers third round draft choice in April's NFL Draft, among other younger lineman.  It appears as though the Chargers are going with a youth movement in San Diego.

Forney played his entire career with the Atlanta Falcons before he signed with San Diego.  He will help bolster the Jaguars offensive line and make some holes for running back Maurice Jones-Drew to explode through.  The Jags have a tough season opener on the road at Indianapolis Colts.
