Jaguars cut roster to 85

NFL teams are required to trim their rosters from 90 players to 80 by Tuesday. But midway through the preseason, teams have a good enough sense of the talent on their rosters that some teams are starting to cut players now.

The Jacksonville Jaguars waived five players this morning, reducing their roster to 85. The move makes sense: If you’ve got guys in camp who are clearly not going to make the team, you might as well let them go know and turn all your focus to the roster decisions that are going to require a little more thought.

Jacksonville’s cuts were wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, safety Michael Hamlin, linebacker Slade Norris, kicker Sam Swank and punter Brent Bowden.

The Jaguars will have to make five more cuts in the next five days, and every team will have to cut all the way down to the 53-player limit by Saturday, September 3.

    Makes sense. Tiquan can’t catch a cold in Alaska with shorts on.

    Also, if the guys have no chance to make even the practice squad, make the cuts now so you don’t have an injury in the next pre-season game or in a practice and get stuck with an IR player or a waived-injured settlement.

    Sam swank was the man at wake always thought that be sweet to have on your team where he be the punter and kicker and free up a roster spot but I guess not

    Dang, I was hoping for a pic of Tiq with his new ‘do. Hilarious. Hopefully he catches on somewhere else.

    Five of the thumbs down that I got for this comment were from the guys the Jaguars cut.
