As initially reported by PhillyFollower, a member at SB Nation's Bleeding Green Nation, and later confirmed by Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Jaguars claimed tight end Brett Brackett on waivers after he was released by the Eagles on Friday. The move will push Brackett on to the 53-man roster, where the Jaguars will have to make room for the tight end.

After going undrafted in 2011, the Penn State-grad originally signed with the Miami Dolphins. On October 8 of the 2011 season he was signed to the Jaguars practice squad, but lasted only three days with the team before being released. He finished the season on the Eagles practice squad and stayed with the team until final cuts on Friday.

The Eagles chose to keep just two tight ends, and Brackett lost a battle against Clay Harbor for the backup tight end spot in preseason. The 6'5, 246-pound tight end recorded eight receptions for 64 yards and two touchdowns during the 2012 preseason.
