Clay Harbor claimed by the Jaguars

The former Eagles tight end was reportedly claimed by the Jaguars on Sunday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars kept busy on Sunday, claiming former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Clay Harbor on waivers, according to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio. The news came shortly after a report that the Jaguars claimed another tight end, D.J. Williams, formerly of the Packers.

Harbor, 26, was a fourth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft and played three seasons with the Eagles as a tight end that also played in a fullback role on occasion. In three years with the team, Harbor tallied 47 receptions for 421 yards with four receiving touchdowns. His most productive season was in 2012 when he started nine games for the team.

On Saturday, Mike Kaye of SB Nation's Eagles blog (Bleeding Green Nation) reacted to the release of Harbor:

While people may be shocked that Igwenagu made the team over Harbor, the former's ability to serve as an H-back, fullback, running back and tight end, made him more appealing. Of all of the Eagles' cuts, Harbor may be the most appealing player on the waiver wire.

The addition of both Harbor and Williams to the tight end position almost certainly spells the end for Brett Brackett, but the other spot is in question. Allen Reisner could be on his way out, but his strong preseason could mean that a player like Lonnie Pryor goes instead.
