The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed former Atlanta Falcons tight end Mickey Shuler on waivers, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times Union. The Jaguars announced their initial 53-man roster on Saturday after making final cuts, but it's no surprise to see the team put in a claim for a few players after final cuts.

Shuler was originally a seventh-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft, but was released the same season in final cuts and claimed by the Miami Dolphins. He's spent time in the NFL with seven different teams and will join his eighth team in the Jacksonville Jaguars.
To make room for Shuler, the Jaguars have cut Marcel Jensen, who should make the practice squad if he clears waivers.

It's likely the Jaguars claim a few more players.
