Spaight was waived by the Dolphins on Nov. 9 after failing to play a snap for the team. The 25-year-old linebacker has 105 tackles and one interception in his career, and will likely be solely a depth option at linebacker for the Jaguars.
Spaight was waived by the Dolphins on Friday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Spaight did not play a single snap for the Dolphins this season, and was waived to make room for Issac Asiata on Miami's 53-man roster. If the four-year pro goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll be free to search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Spaight's third season was up-and-down but he finished on a strong note with 29 tackles over the final three games of the season. The inconsistency made him a difficult to trust IDP option, which included six games with two tackles or less. The 24-year-old is entering the final season of his rookie contract and could have more opportunities at inside linebacker with starters Zach Brown and Mason Foster currently unsigned for 2018.
Spaight (ankle/illness) is listed as active Sunday versus the Giants in New York.
Spaight has been productive at times during his third season, tallying at least seven tackles in seven of 14 appearances. With the team's leading tackler, Zach Brown (knee/Achilles), out of commission yet again, Spaight has a decent shot to post eight (or more) stops for a third straight game.
Spaight (ankle, illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Spaight's only practice this week was a limited session on Friday, so his status for the season finale is truly up in the air. The 24-year-old has dealt with the ankle injury since late November but only missed one game, so he shouldn't be assumed as out before inactives are officially announced at 11:30am EST Sunday morning.
