Jaguars claim LB J.T. Thomas, according to report

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Thomas previously played under Bob Babich with the Chicago Bears.

The Jacksonville Jaguars added another player to their defense on Sunday, claiming former Chicago Bears linebacker J.T. Thomasaccording to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Thomas, 26, was selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but did not play as a rookie after a hip injury sent him to injured reserve. In his second season with the team, Thomas played in all 16 games for the Bears, accumulating five tackles and a forced fumble.

In the 2013 preseason, Thomas five tackles and a sack against the Cleveland Browns. At 6'1, 236 pounds, Thomas adds further competition to a positional group that is already one of the strongest on the team's roster.

During his time with the Bears, Thomas played under new Jaguars defensive coordinator Bob Babich which is likely a contributing factor for his addition to the team.
