It didn’t take running back Bernard Pierce long to find a job. The Jacksonville Jaguars claimed Pierce off waivers on Thursday, one day after the running back’s drunken driving charge led to his release by the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens moved quickly on Wednesday to cut Pierce, holding to the team’s assertion last month that off-field misbehavior would not be tolerated. Running back Ray Rice was suspended by the NFL and released by the Ravens following his arrest last year for domestic violence.
