Jags add Nate Stupar, two others to roster


The winless Jacksonville Jaguars’ roster has been in a near constant state of flux all season, and today is no different.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Jags have claimed linebacker Nate Stupar off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers. They also signed wide receiver Kerry Taylor form the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad and promoted tight end Danny Noble from their own practice squad.

None of these players are going to light up the league, but they provide some depth and potential for a team that is lacking in both. The 25-year-old Stupar is primarily a special teamer who has five tackles in five games this season. Taylor, 24, has caught three passes for 20 yards in his three games he played for the Cardinals. Noble, also 24, played in four games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.

This flurry of signings comes after a number of other moves the Jags made earlier today.

The Jags waived tight end D.J. Williams and offensive tackle DeMarcus Love. The team  also announced that suspended wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been officially added to the reserve/suspended list by the NFL.

Safety Dwight Lowery was also released off injured reserve. Lowery suffered a concussion earlier this season.
