The Jaguars took a big step towards getting to tomorrow’s 75-man roster max. The team announced that the following players have been waived:
- CB Demetrius McCray
- LB Joplo Bartu
- WR Shaq Evans
- K Sam Ficken
- CB Mike Hilton
- RB Cameron Marshall
- P Ryan Quigley
- WR Jamal Robinson
In addition to those cuts, offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach has been placed on IR, safety Earl Wolff has been waived/injured, and offensive lineman Luke Bowanko (hip) and defensive end Jonathan Woodard (Achilles) have been moved to the PUP list.
McCray is a former starting cornerback and was a member of GM David Caldwell’s first draft class. Evans is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets, one of many underwhelming draft choices by former GM John Idzik.
The Jaguars are now down to 78 players.
