The Jaguars signed former Paxon star Bryce Canady and fifth-year cornerback Kenneth Acker, the franchise announced on Saturday. 

To make room, the Jaguars released fifth-year cornerback Dexter McDougle and waived first-year cornerback Charlie Miller.

McDougle struggled in coverage in the fourth quarter during Thursday night's 24-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints when the Jaguars blew a 20-10 lead. Miller struggled to cover speedy receivers throughout training camp.

Canady, a Jacksonville native, played at Florida International from 2016-17. As a senior, he played in all 13 games with the Panthers and had 65 tackles (50 solo), one interception and seven passes defensed and three fumble recoveries. Canady was invited to the Jaguars' mandatory minicamp in June, but he was not extended a contract.

Acker has played in 40 games (15 starts) in his NFL career, most recently playing all 16 games in 2017 with the Kansas City Chiefs. In his two seasons with the Chiefs (2016-17), Acker appeared in 25 games and recorded 35 tackles (34 solo), four passes defensed, one interception and one fumble recovery. In 2015, Acker played in 15 games (13 starts) with the San Francisco 49ers.
