JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have added another defensive lineman from New England, landing fourth-year tackle Kyle Love off waivers from the Patriots.

The Jaguars claimed defensive end Brandon Deaderick off waivers from the Pats earlier this week.

The Patriots released Love on Wednesday after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Love had lost about 20 pounds before receiving the diagnosis about two weeks ago. He has since gained about half of it back.

Love started the first 11 games last season next to Vince Wilfork. Deaderick started the last five.

Love joined the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Mississippi State in 2010 and started 25 of the 41 regular-season games in which he played. He had 80 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks.
