The Jaguars have claimed OL Derwin Gray via waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced today. Gray will remain on the club’s Exempt/Commissioner Permission list as he goes through COVID-19 testing and screening protocols.

After beginning the 2020 season on the Steelers practice squad, he was promoted to the active roster on Sept. 18, 2020 and has appeared in five games this year.
