JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jacksonville claimed linebacker Roy Manning off waivers Tuesday and released linebacker Chris Claiborne.
Claiborne signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars on Sunday, but he ended up being more out of shape than the club anticipated.
Claiborne, the ninth overall pick by Detroit in 1999, had been out of football since the New York Giants released him in December.
Manning was waived by Buffalo on Monday. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder originally signed with Green Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2005. He started two games for the Packers and played one game for Houston last year before being released in October.
Manning could see plenty of action in Jacksonville's preseason finale Thursday night against Washington because the Jaguars are thin at linebacker.
Tony Gilbert is out for the season. Clint Ingram (ankle) and Pat Thomas (hamstring) won't play in the finale, and starters Mike Peterson and Daryl Smith were expected to play very little.
