The Jacksonville Jaguars once again have raided the Minnesota Vikings' scraps. 

They announced on Monday they've claimed tight end Allen Reisner and Mark Asper, who both were waived by the Vikings on Saturday.

Reisner signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa in 2011 and had several stints on the 53-man roster. Asper was claimed by the Vikings off waivers from Buffalo in September. 

The claims come weeks after the Jaguars signed halfback Jordan Todman off the Vikings' practice squad. Todman is now on the Jaguars' injured reserve list. 

According to, Asper was claimed by three other teams (Buffalo, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay) and Reisner by two (Tampa and Detroit).

Jacksonville is tied for the NFL's worst record at 2-13 and thus has priority.
