According to Wednesday's NFL transaction wire, the Patriots have claimed offensive tackle Kevin Haslam off waivers from the Chargers.

Not surprisingly, Haslam played at Rutgers.

Haslam is listed at 6 feet 5 inches, 304 pounds. He played in five games with San Diego last season. He entered the league in 2010 as an undrafted rookie, signing with Jacksonville. He played five games with the Jaguars but missed the entire 2011 season with a knee injury.

To make room for Haslam, the Patriots waived tackle R.J. Mattes.
