Jaguars should and will likely work the waiver wire

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed two players over the last two days of the NFL waiver wire, defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick and Kyle Love, both of which were waived by the New England Patriots. Currently, the Jaguars have the No. 2 spot in the waiver wire, so they will have near "first dibs" on players who are released going forward.

The Chiefs hold the No. 1 spot in the waiver order, but their roster compared to the Jaguars is significantly better, so it's likely they will continue passing on players who are waived.

The Jaguars on the other hand are likely going to keep claiming players if they fit the team's vision going forward, because why not? The Jaguars roster is going to be churned over going forward, exactly like the Seattle Seahawks were when Gus Bradley was there in 2010.

Both Love and Deaderick have a good shot of making the Jaguars final roster, given how they fit on the defensive line and are exactly the type of players the team will be looking for on the waiver wire.

Expect Jacksonville to be active with their waiver order, as they should be.
