JACKSONVILLE — Preseason sensation Jamar Newsome, one of three undrafted rookies to make the Jaguars’ 53-man roster, was waived this afternoon to make room for newly signed Chastin West.
West spent the 2010 season on the Packers’ practice squad. After a strong performance this preseason, including a 97-yard touchdown catch, West again failed to make the club’s final roster, and was delegated to the practice squad again.
West played college ball at Fresno State. The 24-year old is 6’1 and 214 pounds. With Kassim Osgood and Jason Hill nursing minor injuries, West could contribute immediately.
