Jacksonville Jaguars sign veteran QB Todd Bouman Today the Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have signed the veteran quarterback Todd Bouman (pronounced BAU-man) to be the backup to the backup. The deal has a term of one year and will cost the Jags the minimum allowed of $720,000. Bouman will serve as a back up for QB Quinn Gray, who will have his first career start on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since he signed up with the Jaguars in 2002 as undrafted from Florida A&M university. Starting quarterback David Garrard injured an ankle last week, during a sack in the second quarter of the Week 7 game against the Colts, which the Jaguars lost 29-7, and although Garrard was back in the second half, after exam he was told that could be sidelined for up to a month.

 Todd Bouman signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a free agent, after he was released from the Green Bay Packers, where he was backing up Brett Favre since Nov. 2006, while the Packers No.2 quarterback Aaron Rodgers was recovering from injury. Bouman was signed in 1997 by the Vikings as an undrafted from St. Cloud State University as a backup to Daunte Culpepper. His pro debut wasn't until 2001, however, when he briefly replaced Culpepper after injury. The following year he was traded to the Saint backing up Aaron Brooks until 2005. In his entire career Todd Bouman has thrown for 1,683 yards with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
