Concerned his team’s preseason troubles on special teams becoming a regular season debacle, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell responded swiftly Sunday, acquiring seven players off waivers.The Jaguars allowed punt returns of 37 and 18 yards and kickoff returns of 44 and 61 yards during the preseason and felt the need to augment those units.

Caldwell: All about improving roster
This wasn’t about being unconventional. As Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell saw it, the Jaguars’ busy, unusual Sunday afternoon wasn’t about anything but the most basic thing as the 2013 season approaches. The Jaguars wanted to get better. They will do whatever it takes to do it. On Sunday, that meant claiming seven veteran players off waivers and releasing seven players who a day before had been on the 53-man roster – a flurry of transactions that came on the same afternoon the Jaguars also signed seven players to the team’s practice squad.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released defensive tackle Kyle Love, whom they claimed off waivers from the New England Patriots on May 17. The Patriots had released Love with a non-football injury/illness designation just weeks after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The 6-foot-1, 315-pound Love had survived the final cuts and made the 53-man roster on Saturday but was cut on Sunday when the Jaguars were awarded seven players off waivers. His release leaves the Jaguars with just four defensive tackles on the roster.
