Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars signed wide receiver Toney Clemons to the team's active roster from the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad, according to a report from Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Clemons, 6'2, 210, is a rookie from the University of Colorado and was a player that the Jaguars brought in for a private workout/meeting prior the 2012 NFL Draft. He was selected in the seventh round by the Steelers, with the No. 231 overall selection.

As the Jaguars have not yet announced the move, it is not yet known what player they will release, waive or place on injured reserve to open a spot on the active roster for Clemons.

In two seasons at Colorado, Clemons caught 86 passes for 1162 yards with 11 touchdowns. Prior to that, Clemons played two seasons with the Michigan Wolverines before transferring to Colorado. He played one season with Chad Henne as quarterback, but caught just one pass for five yards. In his sophomore year with the Wolverines, he caught 11 passes for 101 yards.
