The Jacksonville Jaguars have released defensive tackle Kyle Love to make room for multiple waiver claims on the way to the team, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

O'Halloran previously reported that the Jaguars were awarded seven players on waivers, and though only five have been revealed so far, that means that the Jaguars will have to release seven of the 53 players that survived final cuts on Saturday.

Love, 26, is somewhat of a surprising cut due to the lack of depth at the nose tackle position. As of Friday, Roy Miller was listed as the starting 1-technique defensive tackle for the Jaguars with Love and T.J. Barnes as the two behind him on the depth chart. After releasing Barnes on Saturday and now Love, the Jaguars are down to only one run-plugging 1-technique on roster unless Abry Jones is asked to fill the role.

Earlier in 2013, Love was waived by the New England Patriots shortly after it was revealed that he had been diagnosed with Diabetes.
