620 CKRM has learned the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars have relinquished the rights to defensive end John Chick making him a free agent. Chick spent two seasons in Jacksonville, appearing in 10 games and registering 2.5 sacks, nine tackles, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He spent parts of the 2010 and 2011 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. Chick also spent three seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2007-2009), winning a Grey Cup in 2007 and was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2009.
I've been told that Chick does not have to wait through the 10-day NFL waiver window, and is free to sign with any team in the NFL or CFL. The Roughriders have been in contact with Chick's agent Gil Scott.
