Jacksonville claimed rookie linebacker John Lotulelei off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and the Jaguars waived first-year linebacker Kyle Knox on Thursday.
Lotulelei made the Seahawks as a rookie free agent this year and played in four preseason games and two regular-season games before he was waived Oct. 2. He had two solo tackles and one special-teams tackle.
In college at Nevada-Las Vegas, Lotulelei totaled 180 tackles (83 solo), 4.5 tackles for loss and one forced fumble. He was first-team All-Mountain West Conference as a senior.
Lotulelei is the cousin of Carolina Panthers first-round draft pick Star Lotulelei.
