Jags Claim Teddy Williams, Cut Dekoda Watson

The Jaguars have added two new players to their 53-man roster, claiming wide receiver and kick returner Teddy Williams off waivers from the Bears, and activating cornerback Aaron Colvin from the non-football injury list, per Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (Twitter links). To make room for the incoming players, the club has waived linebacker Dekoda Watson and cornerback Peyton Thompson.

Watson is perhaps the most notable name of the bunch, as the Jags signed the former Buccaneers linebacker to a three-year deal this past offseason that included $1.5MM in guaranteed money. However, he battled injuries during OTAs and training camp, and was underwhelming once he actually got onto the field.

This set of transactions doesn’t include one involving Allen Robinson, who is out for the year with a foot injury and will presumably land on injured reserve soon.
