The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed defensive lineman Atiyyah Ellison and guard Kynan Forney to contracts.  Ellison was scheduled to become a restricted free agent Friday, and Forney was set to become an unrestricted free agent.  Length and terms of both veterans’ contracts are undisclosed.

Forney, 31, is entering his 10th NFL season and his second in Jacksonville.  The 6-3, 302-pounder signed with the Jaguars last September 8 and he played in three games as a backup lineman.
