It has been nearly six weeks since free agency opened and Raiders former center Stefen Wisniewski has finally found a new home. Well, I assume that's who Adam Schefter was talking about when he said "Stefan Wisnewski" had signed on with the Jacksonville Jaguars on a one-year deal.

The financial details on that one-year deal came in a short time later from Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo who puts the contract at $2.5 million.

Wisniewski was chosen in the second round of the 2011 draft. He was a fulltime starter for the Raiders since day one and their every day starting center the past three years.
He was allowed to leave as a free agent this offseason and was replaced in Oakland by former Chiefs free agent Rodney Hudson who at the time signed on as the highest paid center in the NFL with a 5-year, $44.5 million deal.
It was revealed recently the reason why despite a great many visits with teams that Wisniewski had yet to sign with anyone was because he had suffered a shoulder injury last season that required offseason surgery. Which means he has either healed up from the injury or the Jaguars are signing him regardless of the injury.
