JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed cornerback Mike Holmes and waived safety Jeremiah Brown.

Holmes was originally signed as a rookie free agent by the Chicago Bears in 2011 and was waived during final cuts. He was signed to Indianapolis' practice squad last October and then promoted to the 53-man roster in early December. The Colts waived him in May.

Holmes finished his college career at Syracuse with 274 tackles. A three-year starter at cornerback and free safety, he had six career interceptions. He also recorded a 23.5-yard average as a kickoff returner with one touchdown and returned 30 punts for a 10.4-yard average.
