Defensive tackle Kyle Love passed his physical and will join the Jacksonville Jaguars after being claimed off waivers from the New England Patriots, per USA Today.

There is a catch, however, as Love will have to receive treatment for his Type-2 diabetes. The disease is rumored to have played a role in his release by the Patriots, though the club has not commented since waiving him earlier this week. He started 11 games for the Pats last season prior to being diagnosed with the illness.
