The Steelers claimed quarterback John Parker Wilson off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team announced today.
Wilson (6-2, 215) was signed by Jacksonville on Sept. 1, 2012 and spent the most of the season on the practice squad. He was activated for one game last season, on Oct. 28, 2012 at Green Bay, but did not play. The former Alabama quarterback was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by the Atlanta Falcons on April 28, 2009. After just over three seasons with the Falcons, that included time on the active roster and the practice squad, Wilson was released on Aug. 26, 2012.
