Jaguars head coach says Lotulelei is a versatile asset
October 5, 2013 - Robert Collias
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said at his Friday press conference that his team picked up John Lotulelei off waivers for the linebacker's versatility.
Lotulelei, a former Baldwin and UNLV standout, was released by the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the week.
Here is Bradley's take on Lotulelei from a video on the Jags' website:
“What I really thought was he upgraded us special-teams wise. He did a nice job in the preseason at linebacker, but he has the ability to be a four-core special teams guy. With Dave (Caldwell, the Jaguars’ general manager) and I, we are always looking at the practice squad and those parts of our roster, and right now we’re competing to always look to improve that part of the roster, and we felt like this could be a great addition to help us improve in that area, and on special teams.”
Lotulelei had 12 tackles in the preseason for Seattle and three in the regular season, all in a Sept. 22 victory over Jacksonville. One of his regular-season tackles was on special teams, where he clearly will see action on all four units — punt, punt return, kickoff and kickoff return.
We have tried to contact Lotulelei, but he's a busy guy moving about as far as possible in the NFL.
When we hear from him, we will get his take on his whole wild week.
Jacksonville (0-4) plays at St. Louis (1-3) on Sunday at 7 a.m. HST.
