Just three days ago, the Atlanta Falcons decided to cut ties with fullback Bradie Ewing and released him.
Thankful for the opportunity to be an @Atlanta_Falcons. Amazing organization and fan base! Time to start another chapter in the journey!

Ewing went on waivers and the Jacksonville Jaguars are one team that put a claim on him.
According to Brain McIntyre, the Jaguars were awarded Ewing on Tuesday.

Ewing was originally drafted with the 157th overall pick of the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Falcons. The former Wisconsin Badgers’ star has had trouble staying healthy. In 2012, he was placed on injured reserve before the season began because of a torn ACL.
A year later, Ewing finally got onto the field, but injured his shoulder after two games and once again had to be placed on injured reserve.
He had two catches for 29 yards last season.
