The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed wide receiver Toney Clemons from the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Clemons joins Jacksonville's 53-man roster.

The rookie wideout could have declined the offer and remained with Pittsburgh, but the Steelers had recently signed wide receiver David Gilreath from the practice squad and added veteran Plaxico Burress to help with depth at receiver.

Clemons was drafted by the Steelers in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL draft.

During his college career, Clemons played for both the Michigan Wolverines and the Colorado Buffaloes. After playing sparingly in two seasons at Michigan, Clemons broke through at at Colorado, catching 43 passes in both of his seasons there. During his senior year last season, Clemons had 680 yards and eight touchdowns for the Buffaloes.

After losing, 20-14, to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the Steelers are 6-5 on the season. Pittsburgh is back in action next Sunday, Dec. 2, against the Baltimore Ravens.
