The Jacksonville Jaguars made some roster moves over the weekend that got swept under the rug a bit because of the events going on. The team signed rookie wide receiver Kenny Shaw, veteran defensive tackle David Carter and veteran linebacker Josh Hull. To make room for these signings the team waived/injured three players.

Defensive tackle Jordan Miller (knee), linebacker John Lotulelei (knee) and wide receiver Damian Copeland (wrist) were all "waived/injured" and went unclaimed, meaning that they have now hit injured reserve. It's very rare to see players who are waived/injured get claimed in the NFL, as it's one of those unwritten rules and considered dirty pool.

Shaw, who was a key player during Florida State's run to the BCS Championship last season, was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns following the 2014 NFL Draft. Carter  has spent time with the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raider while Hull has had stints with the St. Louis Rams, Washington football team and the New England Patriots.
