The Jacksonville Jaguars have made two rosters moves on Tuesday according to some reports. The team signed linebacker Jeremiah George off the New York Jets practice squad, according to a report by Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. The Jaguars also brought back veteran safety Sherrod Martinaccording to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

Martin was with the Jaguars during the offseason, training camp and the preseason and was one of the last cuts made to the 53-man roster. With the injury to Chris Prosinski and the overall poor play at the free safety position, it makes sense for the Jaguars to dip back into Martin, who clearly was close to making the team, and give it a go.

George was a fifth-round pick of the Jets in the 2014 NFL Draft and was released at final cuts and placed on the team's practice squad. He played his college football at Iowa State and led the Big 12 in tackles his final season, also being named first team All Big-12.

The Jaguars will need to make two corresponding roster moves, likely releasing someone like wide receiver Kerry Taylor and/or placing someone on injured reserve or cutting form either linebacker or somewhere else.
