Found October 09, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

On October 5th, 2012 the Jacksonville Jaguars made a decision to cut a player who was having a terrific preseason in Aaron Morgan.  Morgan played college ball at the University of Louisiana Monroe and was a sack master for the program.  Well today just four days later after clearing waivers, Morgan landed on a practice squad where he could have a chance to be called up very soon.  The Tamp Bay Bucs, signed Morgan to the practice squad because of his relentlessness at pass rushing. 


I don’t think this will be a move that lasts long, Morgan has the talent to get to the quarterback from the DE position and let’s be honest the Bucs haven’t been getting to the QB.  Michael Bennett has been their best defensive end, and currently on the roster the Bucs only have 3 defensive ends on the roster.  They have to play 2 defensive ends, and with Da’Quan Bowers and Adrian Clayborn both being hurt, it opens the door for Morgan.  Morgan is a very good special teams player who can get to the quarterback.  Expect him to be called up very soon by the Bucs, I will give it a week before they have him on the 53 man roster.
