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.

  1. Gus can have the scraps. Pete and Schneider treat the bottome of our roster like it’s an extension of the practice squad.

    The kid looked good, but a ‘dig’ on SFO was too much fun to pass on.

    Now, about letting McGrath go to K.C. BAD MOVE.


  2. I watched Lotulelei in all four preseason games, I was rather impressed. Decent skills for a rook, high motor.

    I think the ‘hawks may have flubbed on this one, but they were already up to their armpits in good linebackers. This kid might get better than working special teams now, so good for him.

  3. Idiot move by Schneider and Carroll. Lotoulelli was a Tasmanian devil in the making. And just to make room for a 3rd string QB who couldn’t even make the 49ers roster?

  4. This guy was a lot of fun to watch in the preseason. Somewhat undersized, but has a real nose for the ball. Hope he succeeds down there.

  5. So he went from the best team in the league (the Seahawks) to the worst team in the league (the Jaguars) just so the Seahawks and 49ers could play their game of grabbing each other’s players. The NFL is messed up sometimes.

  6. Jaguars should be taking players off every NFL team practice squad’s because some/most are not doing their job!
    I would start with teams that are undefeated.

  7. As a hawks fan who watched that jags game close, he will at LEAST improve your guys’ special teams and weekly preparation. He may not Improve your D yet, as he’s still a bit light. Plays hard though.

  8. Quick, aggressive and fun to watch. Not effective yet as he gets in his own way being over aggressive, quick and just out of the plays……..He has the tools to be good and likely will be in the NFL for many years. Good luck to him and glad he gets to go to a team that will need his talents on a daily basis which will only help him to further develop.
