If the Jacksonville Jaguars had plans to bring back Jake Luton through their practice squad, it won’t be happening. The former Jags sixth-round pick was signed by the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday.

This decision comes after Luton was among several players waived during the Jags’ final roster moves that occurred on Tuesday to trim their team down to 53 players. It isn’t uncommon for teams to take two quarterbacks into the regular season and the Jags were one of those teams when the roster cut deadline occurred.

The Jags drafted Luton out of Oregon State last year with selection No. 189. As a rookie, he took the field for three games with the team (all three were starts) and accumulated a 54.5% completion rate (60-of-110) for 624 yards, two touchdowns, and six picks. His starts came against the Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, and Pittsburgh Steelers, but he wasn’t able to garner a win in any of those contests.

With Luton off the market, the Jags will undoubtedly be looking to add a developmental quarterback to their practice squad Wednesday. At one point and time, they had four on their roster during training camp between Trevor Lawrence, C.J. Beathard, Gardner Minshew II, and Luton. Of course, Luton is a Seahawk now and Minshew was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, leaving just Lawrence and Beathard.
