The Jacksonville Jaguars have once again looked to the former home of head coach Gus Bradley to add to their roster.

The Jaguars claimed linebacker John Lotulelei off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. To make room on their roster, they released Kyle Knox, another former Seattle linebacker.

Lotulelei received the highest signing bonus of any undrafted free agent in the league when he signed with Seattle after the draft in April. Lotulelei had a strong preseason with Seattle with 12 tackles and earned his way onto the Seahawks 53-man roster. He appeared in two games playing mainly on special teams,

Seattle placed Lotulelei on waivers after claiming quarterback B.J. Daniels off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday.

Lotulelei joins cornerback Will Blackmon and safety Winston Guy as former Seahawks to end up in Jacksonville this season.
