Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - The Jacksonville Jaguars signed veteran linebacker Greg Favors to a three-year contract that includes a $750,000 signing bonus.

"The thing he (Favors) brings most is experience," Jaguars defensive coordinator Mike Smith said. "He's played in two Super Bowls and started in two Super Bowls. Though he only spent one season in Carolina, there are a lot of similarities in what we do and what they do."

Favors, who was an unrestricted free agent, spent last season with the NFC champion Carolina Panthers and made 75 total tackles.

The 6-1, 244-pound linebacker was selected by Kansas City in the fourth round of the 1998 draft. Favors spent three seasons with the Chiefs before playing with Tennessee, Buffalo and Indianapolis.

Favors, who specializes in pass coverage, replaced Mark Fields at strong-side linebacker last year after Fields was diagnosed with Hodgkins prior to the season.

For his career, he has 207 tackles, nine sacks , one interception and five passes defensed.

Coach Del Rio, I think, will definitely continue to beefin-up the Jags D. We'll have to see how good Favors is. Apparently he got alot of playing time on the Panthers last year, which is a good sign considering how good their D did.

Yeah he played a TON. And yes he is good. He was 4th on their team with tackles and 2nd on tackles for losses. He is a very good addition for the defensive-minded del rio
