According to his Twitter page, the Jacksonville Jaguars have signed defensive lineman Nate Collins off the New York Giants practice squad. To make room on the 53-man roster, the Jaguars will place defensive end Aaron Kampman on injured reserve. Collins was originally released by the Giants on September 4th. He was actually claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they put a higher priority on defensive tackle Landon Cohen, so Collins cleared waivers and signed to the Giants practice squad.

Collins played his college football at the University of Virginia. He ended his senior season with the Cavaliers with 77 tackles, from the nose tackle position. Collins was not invited to the NFL combine last February, but in April prior to the draft he was worked out by the Jaguars.
