The Cut Tracker

 

TE Braedon Bowman

An undrafted free agent in 2016, Bowman competed with Nic Jacobs, Neal Sterling and Ben Koyack for the final two tight end spots behind Marcedes Lewis and Julius Thomas. Bowman figured to fill the role as the reserve receiving tight end behind Thomas as well as filling the primary H-back role. With the release of Bowman and Jacobs, Koyack and Sterling now own the final two tight end spots.

 

S Josh Evans

The former sixth-round pick out of Florida was a liability in coverage and frequently missed tackles. With James Sample landing on IR in the preseason, many expected Evans to stay on the roster as starter Jonathan Cyprien’s backup. With the release of the fourth-year safety, rookie undrafted free agent Jarrod Wilson has likely earned a spot as the depth behind Cyprien on the active roster. 

 

OT Rashod Hill

The rookie undrafted free agent played solidly through the preseason and could possibly find himself on the Jaguars’ practice squad if he is not picked up by another team first.

 

DT TJ Barnes

The colossal interior defender was a long shot to make the roster after signing a one-year deal several weeks ago. With Roy Miller III and Abry Jones on the roster, the Jaguars already had plenty of depth at one-technique nose tackle, especially for a position that typically is only on the field for two downs.

 

SAM/OTTO Thurston Armbrister

The University of Miami product plummeted on the depth chart after a rocky rookie season backing up Paul Posluszny and Dan Skuta. With all the talented depth at every linebacker position, Armbrister quickly became expendable.

 

LEO Tyrone Holmes

The former FCS pass rushing star stacked up several solid outings in the preseason and will likely land on the Jaguars’ practice squad if he clears waivers.

 

SAM/OTTO Ryan Davis

Easily the most surprising cut of 2016 thus far, Davis found himself on the wrong side of the roster bubble after transitioning to strong-side linebacker this offseason. The former undrafted free agent signed a restricted free agent tender several months ago worth over $2 million. Davis has 11.0 career sacks, with 10.0 of those coming over the last two season. 2014 was Davis’ most productive season when he recorded 6.5 sacks. In the former Bethune-Cookman standout’s first year in Duval, he clinched two game wins (both versus the
