Jaguars To Release RT Jermey Parnell

The Jaguars’ spring cleaning is in full effect. The team will release right tackle Jermey Parnell, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). 

Parnell was due $6MM in 2019, but none of that money was guaranteed. The Jaguars now have somewhere in the neighborhood of $30MM in cap space after their litany of cuts on Friday morning.

Before Parnell’s exit, the Jaguars also released defensive tackle Malik Jackson, running back Carlos Hyde, and safety Tashaun Gipson. At this rate, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see even more key players released by the end of the business day.

Parnell, a 2009 undrafted free agent out of Mississippi, bounced around the NFL before landing with the Cowboys in 2010. The offensive tackle established himself as one of Dallas’ key backups, and he turned that experience into a starting gig with the Jaguars. The 32-year-old spent the past four years in Jacksonville, starting each of his 57 games. He appeared in 13 games last season, with Pro Football Focus ranking him 49th among 83 eligible offensive tackles at the time of his season-ending injury in December.

    At this point I don’t know why any player would sign with the Jags, it doesn’t even matter if they offer the most money cause you’re probably gonna end up getting cut. And on top they play in the awful state that is Florida why would anyone willingly want to play there

      I mean most players end up getting cut in the NFL at some point. Plus, another reason why players would want to play in Florida is because of the weather. Assuming money is the same, why play in a place like New York when its basically going to be sub 50 degrees throughout the season when you can play in Florida where its more likely to be above 60 throughout the season.

    Did they already release Bortles? Can’t remember if they have or haven’t. Regardless, if they haven’t released him I’m sure they will soon.
