Jaguars claim QB Jeff Tuel off waivers


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars juggled their reserve quarterback situation Monday.

They also increased their experience at the position, claiming Jeff Tuel off waivers from the Buffalo Bills and releasing rookie Jake Waters.

Tuel, who was waived by the Bills last Friday, played collegiately at Washington State and originally signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He started one of two games played for the Bills in 2013 and spent last season on the Bills' practice squad.

Tuel (6-feet-3, 221 pounds) completed 26 of 59 passes for 309 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions for the Bills in 2013. He completed 18 of 39 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions in his lone start, a 23-13 loss at Kansas City.

Jaguars assistant head coach-offense/offensive line Doug Marrone and quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett were the Bills' head coach and offensive coordinator, respectively, the past two seasons.

Monday's moves mean the Jaguars still have four quarterbacks on the roster: starter and second-year veteran Blake Bortles, backup and eight-year veteran Chad Henne, first-year veteran Stephen Morris and Tuel.

Waters, who played collegiately at Kansas State, signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent shortly after the 2015 NFL Draft.
