Jaguars claim Mike Kafka

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed quarterback Mike Kafka, according to a tweet from his agent. Kafka was recently released by the New England Patriots when the team decided to take a flier on Tim Tebow.

Kafka played his college football at Northwestern University and was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Kafka served as a back up on the Eagles playing a little bit of spot duty during his time there and was signed by the Patriots in the offseason.

Kafka gives the Jaguars their fifth quarterback on the roster, but rookie Jordan Rodgers has not been able to participate due to a groin injury. It's likely Kafka will come in to compete with rookie Matt Scott and Rodgers for a roster spot.
