Jaguars claim WR Stephen Williams off waivers from Seahawks

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Williams, 6'5, 208 pounds, presents the Jaguars with a tall target that they have not had in 2013.

The Jacksonville Jaguars predictably claimed another waived Seattle Seahawks player on Monday, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, the team has been awarded wide receiver Stephen Williams two days after he was released to make room for Bruce Irvin.

Williams, 27, was an undrafted free agent in 2010 with the Arizona Cardinals before joining the Seahawks in January 2013. At 6'5, 208 pounds, Williams presents a tall target that the Jaguars have been completely void of in the first five weeks of the regular season, as no other receiver on the roster is more than 6'1.

After making the final 53-man roster with the Seahawks, Williams was active for each of the team's first four games, earning 52 offensive snaps, but was unable to record a reception. He impressed in preseason though, with seven receptions for 236 yards and three touchdowns.

The Jaguars have not yet announced what move will be made to make room for Williams, although the impending placement of Luke Joeckel on injured reserve would seem to be a logical roster move.

Update: Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that wide receiver Jeremy Ebert was waived to make room for Williams.
