The Jaguars claimed safety Tracy Howard off waivers, per the NFL transactions wire. Howard was waived by the Browns on Thursday.
Howard, 22, caught on with the Browns last spring as an undrafted free agent from Miami. He appeared in all but one of their games and worked mostly on special teams, playing nearly 42 percent of snaps and returning seven kicks. Howard also saw a decent amount of action defensively (25.2 percent of snaps), and totaled 16 tackles.
The Jaguars presently have a boatload of safeties under contract with Tashaun Gipson (another former Brown), Barry Church, James Sample, Peyton Thompson, Jarrod Wilson, and Akeem Davis also on the depth chart.
