Longtime Dallas Cowboys guard Mackenzy Bernadeau signed a two-year, $4 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars last Friday, and not long after that, thanked the team and their fans in a tweet.
Bernadeau tweeted (all sic): “Thank you to the Cowboys orgnization for giving me the opportunity to play the sport I love and thank you #cowboynation for all your support”.
Bernadeau came to the Cowboys as a free agent in 2012, after spending the first four years of his career with the Panthers, the team that drafted him in the seventh round in 2008. While here, he never held down a starting job for long, but he was an asset as a reserve interior lineman, and appeared in all 16 games in each of the four years he was in Dallas.
This is the second consecutive year the Jaguars have found offensive line help among the Cowboys’ free agents. Last year, they signed swing tackle Jermey Parnell to a five-year, $32 million deal.
