Jaguars awarded quarterback Mike Kafka off waivers

Posted Jun 11, 2013

The Jacksonville Jaguars today were awarded third-year quarterback Mike Kafka off waivers from New England.

The Jacksonville Jaguars today were awarded third-year quarterback Mike Kafka off waivers from New England.   Second-year tight end Matt Veldman was waived from the roster.

Kafka, 6-3, 225, has played in four career games since entering the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick of Philadelphia in 2010.  He spent two seasons with the Eagles and completed 11 of 16 passes for 107 yards.  Kafka spent the 2012 preseason with the Eagles before he was waived during final cuts.  He was signed by the Patriots on January 4, 2013.

The former Northwestern signal-caller started 19 games including all 13 games as a senior.  His career totals include 4,265 passing yards, 887 rushing yards and 30 total touchdowns (19 passing, 11 rushing).  He was a second-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior after throwing for 3,430 yards.

A native of Oak Lawn, Illinois, Kafka attended St. Rita of Cascia High School where he led his team to three conference championships in three seasons.  He was also a member of the baseball team.
