The Jaguars dropped to the No. 3 position in priority for waiver claims this year, but they were still able to add a player they think can help the team in 2014.

Tight end Mickey Shuler has joined the team after being waived by the Falcons. Jacksonville is the latest stop in Shuler’s extensive travels around the league. He was a seventh-round pick by the Vikings in 2010, moved on to Miami (where he saw his only regular season action) and then returned to the Vikings before moving on for short stints with the Raiders, Cardinals and Bills.

Tight end Marcel Jensen was waived to make room for Shuler on the 53-man roster.

In addition to Shuler’s addition, the Jaguars also announced the first seven members of their practice squad. They are tackle Cody Booth, defensive tackle DeAndre Coleman, safety Craig Loston, quarterback Stephen Morris, wide receiver Kerry Taylor, linebacker Marcus Whitfield and wide receiver Tony Washington. Washington was cut by the Colts last week, but all the others spent camp with the Jags.
