Six teams put in waiver claims on James O’Shaughnessy

James O'Shaughnessy nearly had more teams interested in his services than he has career receptions.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, six teams put in waiver claims on the former Patriots tight end.

He was awarded to the Jaguars based on record. The Bills, Colts, Chargers, Jets and Saints also put in claims.

The Patriots acquired O’Shaughnessy from the Chiefs this offseason for a swap of sixth- and seventh-round picks, and given the rest of the deals the Patriots made this weekend, you’re conditioned to assume they checked to see if there was a market for the spare tight end.

O’Shaughnessy, originally a fifth-round pick of the Chiefs, has eight receptions in two seasons. He had two catches last year for negative-1 yards. And now he’s in Jacksonville, continuing to back up.

    I don’t understand the reluctance of these teams to give up a conditional 7th or a swap of picks next year to acquire a veteran TE who could provide immediate. help.

    It’s good to have a full complement of picks going into the draft. But how many of next year’s 7th rounders are going to be a better value than O’Shaughnessy is right now?

    LMAO, you base this on what exactly? NE fans that followed the TE battle through camp and the preseason are very comfortable with a TE group consisting of Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen, Jacob Hollister and FB/TE James Develin. Not only did Hollister outplay O’Shaughnessy but Devlin was taking snaps away from him.

    Actually, he wasn’t quite good enough to make the roster. By definition, the New England Patriots do not mess up. Bill Belichick maintains the highest standards in the NFL, it’s just part of the Patriot way.

  6. The Pats cast offs are better than some team’s 3rd stringers is what it comes down to. And just as likely Belichick will find a couple bottom of the roster guys dumped by other teams that will head to the Pats practice squad if not the main roster.
