It seems NFL teams were surprised to see James O’Shaughnessy’s name pop up on the waiver wire Saturday afternoon.
The former New England Patriots tight end was claimed by six teams, the most of any player, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday. The Jacksonville Jaguars had the highest waiver claim and snagged O’Shaughnessy. The Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers, New York Jets and New Orleans Saints also put in claims.
The Patriots traded a fifth-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for O’Shaughnessy and a sixth-round selection during the 2017 NFL Draft. The Patriots elected to keep undrafted rookie tight end Jacob Hollister over O’Shaughnessy.
