Veteran DT Stanley returns to Jaguars, with whom he spent part of 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Thursday that they have signed veteran defensive tackle Montavious Stanley to a free-agent contract.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

In 2007, Stanley started six of 14 games played for the Atlanta Falcons and finished with 29 tackles and two fumble recoveries.

Stanley previously had signed with the Jaguars in September 2006. He made four tackles in three games but was waived after spending two months with the team.
