The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed offensive tackle Troy Kropog, according to a report by Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. Kropog who was originally drafted by the Titans in the fourth-round of the 2009 NFL Draft, was released by the Titans on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-6, 315 pound offensive lineman was known as a "utility" lineman who has the ability to play both guard and tackle. Kropog was a three-year starter at Tulane and was a second-team All-American in 2008. Kropog has started no games for the Titans in his short NFL career and is the second offensive lineman the Jaguars have picked up in as many days.
It shouldn't be a surprise the Jaguars are hitting the waiver wire for offensive lineman, especially lineman that can play both guard and tackle. Against the Houston Texans, it looks like both Michael Brewster and Guy Whimper will be starting on the offensive line, but that could shake up in the next coming weeks if the line doesn't get healthy.
Update: To make room for Kropog, the Jaguars have released offensive guard Josh Beekman.
