10/05/2011 7:26 PM - JACKSONVILLE – Quarterbacks of the ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks now have another big target to find in the open field, as the team announced Wednesday that wide receiver John Chiles has been added to the 2012 roster.

The upcoming season will be Chiles’ first in the Arena Football League. The 22-year-old attended the University of Texas, where he totaled 65 receptions for 752 yards and four touchdowns in his four-year collegiate career. Chiles (6’2, 215) spent time at both quarterback and running back during his first two years with the Longhorns, producing two passing touchdowns and four rushing touchdowns at Texas.

A native of Dallas, Texas, Chiles spent time in training camp with the New Orleans Saints, signing with the team as a non-drafted free agent earlier this year.
