Jacksonville Jaguars place DeMarcus Love on waivers


The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t doing many things right at the moment, and that’s helped keep them win-less through the first half of the 2013 NFL season. One of the biggest areas they’ve struggled with is along the offensive line, and they brought in offensive tackle DeMarcus Love in hopes he could help upgrade it.

At worst, they though he could provide some quality depth, but he’s been a big disappointment thus far, and the team has now waived him:


Love was selected with the 168th overall pick in the 6th round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He was inactive for all 16 games that year. In August of this year, Love was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, and was later cut by the Vikings.

Love had a great college career with the Arkansas Razorbacks, but it has yet to translate to the NFL level. In his junior season, Love started all 13 games for the Razorbacks, and for his senior season, he was moved to left tackle. He was named Preseason All-SEC First Team in 2010.
