JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed rookie receiver Brandon Wimberly and waived offensive tackle DeMarcus Love.

The move came Monday, four days after the team was awarded receiver Kevin Smith off waivers from Arizona.

Jacksonville needed depth at the position since seven receivers are sidelined with injuries during organized team activities. Cecil Shorts III (calf), Ace Sanders (thigh), Tandon Doss (calf), Mike Brown (groin), Marqise Lee (ankle), Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Lamaar Thomas (knee) are out, leaving the team with four healthy receivers last week.

The 6-foot-3 Wimberly participated in the team’s rookie minicamp in May on a workout basis. He was a four-time All-Mountain West selection at Nevada, playing in 49 career games. He had 97 receptions for 989 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior.
