Jaguars awarded Stephen WIlliams on waivers


The Jaguars have claimed wide receiver Stephen Williams on waivers from Seattle, the club said Monday.

Williams, 27, appeared in Seattle’s first four regular-season games, playing 51 snaps on offense. The Seahawks waived him on Saturday. Williams (6-5, 208) led the NFL in receiving yards in the preseason (236).

About half of Williams’ regular-season snaps (25) came in Seattle’s Week Three victory against Jacksonville.

In another roster move Monday, the Jaguars waived wide receiver Jeremy Ebert, John Oehser of reported. The 24-year-old Ebert has played in four regular-season games for Jacksonville in 2013, catching two passes for 10 yards.
