Following the final roster cuts on Friday, the Jaguars and the rest of the NFL were free to sign players to their practice squads on Saturday, as long as the players cleared the waiver wire and satisfied the practice squad eligibility requirements.
The Jaguars started filling their eight practice squad spots on Saturday by signing three players released by the team on Friday that went unclaimed on waivers and by signing quarterback John Parker Wilson after he was waived by the Falcons on Friday.
Wilson, the former quarterback of the Alabama Crimson Tide that holds every significant passing record in the school's history, has spent each of the last three seasons with the Falcons after signing with them as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He saw time in just two 2012 preseason games and threw just 16 passes, completing 10 for 74 yards.
