Jacksonville Jaguars claim Allen Bradford


On Monday, the New York Giants announced the signing of five undrafted free agents. To make room for the signings, they cut four of their own players, including linebacker Allen Bradford.

The Giants today made a series of post-draft roster moves, releasing four players and signing five rookie free agents, all of them defensive players.

The team terminated the contract of quarterback Rusty Smith, whom they signed on April 28.

The Giants also waived three players: linebacker Allen Bradford, cornerback Junior Mertile and punter Jordan Gay. Bradford was claimed off waivers last Sept. 12 and played in 10 games for the Giants. He had five special teams tackles. Mertile was in training camp with the Giants last summer and was signed to a reserve/future contract on Dec. 30.

According to Michael DiRocco of, the Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed Bradford.

The Jaguars claiming Bradford comes as no surprise because he was with the Seattle Seahawks from 2011-2013, making him very familiar with Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradley, who was the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator.
