JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars, quiet during the first few days of free agency, have signed cornerback Alan Ball, running back Justin Forsett and defensive tackle Roy Miller.
They signed contracts Friday, joining linebacker Geno Hayes in the team's free-agent class.
Ball spent last season in Houston after playing five years in Dallas. He is expected to compete for a starting job for the Jaguars, who recently parted ways with cornerbacks Derek Cox, Rashean Mathis and Aaron Ross. Ball has 22 career starts and three interceptions.
Forsett has played for Indianapolis (2008), Seattle (2008-11) and Houston (2012). He has 1,661 yards and eight touchdowns. He will compete for the backup job behind Maurice Jones-Drew.
Miller spent the last four seasons in Tampa Bay, recording 140 tackles and three sacks. He replaces Terrance Knighton.

I, Blaine Gabbert, take you, Jacksonville Jaguars, to be the NFL franchise I fail with. I promise to allow you to change coaches and offensive systems at the drop of a hat.

I also promise, as the 10th selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, that you and your coaching staff can criticize, chastise, and berate me for my inconsistent...
