The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly claimed wide receiver Jaelen Strong off waivers from the rival Houston Texans, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Strong was just released by the Texans on Monday. Strong was inactive for Week 1 after he served a one-game suspension due to violating the league’s substance-abuse policy back in February 2016. On Thursday against the Cincinnati Bengals, his season debut, he played 20 snaps but wasn’t targeted by quarterback Deshaun Watson. Strong was an ineffective wide receiver in Houston, off a sophomore season in which he had 14 catches for 131 yards and no touchdowns. The former Arizona State standout was originally selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. It remains to be seen if Strong will be productive in Jacksonville, but it’s certainly an offense that needs a spark.
