The Jaguars waived Flanagan on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Flanagan signed in Jacksonville in late August and spent less than two weeks with the team. He could carve out a practice-squad role if he clears waivers.
Flanagan signed a contract with the Jaguars on Saturday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. The Jaguars waived/injured tight end Charles Jones (quad/foot) in a corresponding move. Flanagan will look to secure a depth role with the Jaguars, but he's considered a long shot since he hasn't played since 2018.
Flanagan tried out for the Colts on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. The Redskins waived Flanagan with an injury settlement in September, but it appears he's shaken off the undisclosed issue. There's no indication the 24-year-old tight end received an offer from the Colts, who have Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox under contract.
Flanagan (undisclosed) was part of the rehab group at Sunday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it's likely that Flanagan is just dealing with normal bumps and bruises of training camp. As long as the 24-year-old is sidelined, expect J.P. Holtz and Jeremy Sprinkle to receive the bulk of the depth reps at tight end.
Flanagan finished his rookie season with one catch for 14 yards in three games. The undrafted rookie out of Pitt didn't survive the preseason in Washington but eventually joined the 53-man roster when Jordan Reed (foot) and Vernon Davis (concussion) were unavailable in December. Flanagan will need to battle for a roster spot in 2019, presumably hoping to land a job as a blocking-focused No. 3 tight end.
