Jaguars waive Session after series of concussions

The Jaguars waived linebacker Clint Session today, ending an expensive case of bad luck for both sides.

According to John Oehser of the team’s official website, they waived Session and tight end Maurice Stovall.

Session signed a five-year, $29 million contract with the Jags last offseason which included $11.5 million guaranteed.

But he was still feeling the effects of last season’s three concussions this offseason, and was never activated this year. He played nine games for the Jags.

They paid him a $2.25 million roster bonus in March, a clear sign they expected him to return. Now, the only hope is that Session can return to health.

    Someone should sign him for the vet minimum just to finish off the season. He’d be a nice addition to some of the teams ailing at LB.

    That’s really unfortunate. Session was a good Colt. He always played hard. I was really bummed out that they didn’t resign him. Ultimately, Jacksonville overpaid. Ultimately, Jacksonville made another boneheaded personnel move. As a Colts fan, I really hope Jacksonville cleans house and starts to become a formidable opponent. It’s sad watching that team flounder in the basement of the standings year after year.

    Just another bad luck signing by Genius Smith.

    Even when Sessions was healthy last season, he was taken off the field for anything near a passing situation.

    That was Genius Smith trying to sign a Free Agent Defense to cover up his bad draft picks.

    Can’t wait for the third Rebuild in 10 years.

    This coming from a Colt. Priceless. Who was in the basement last year? And last I checked, one of our measely two wins this year came against you – in Indy.

    You had one of the greatest QBs to ever play the game and what did it get you? From the sound of it, you would think you were the Steelers.

    Feel better. Great player. But man it’s hard to be a jags fan. Not brownies hard, but, you know.

    Im a bit confused. What is the significance of the guaranteed portion when he is being waived for medical reasons?

    If the NFL is really going to be serious about player safety, they’re going to need to start guaranteeing contracts like most every sport does. With the increased emphasis on detecting concussions, you’re going to see this sort of thing more and more where guys won’t get clearance following a string of concussions and will just be dumped. And that will only encourage the next guy to keep his mouth shut and do everything possible to avoid being diagnosed with a concussion in the first place.

    I agree, don’t call out the Jags just because your on a better run streak. For all I care, you guys killed your season early just to get the next best thing coming out of college.. great strategy bud. At least we’re trying to win for our coaches, regardless.
    If Henne was given the QB play at the start of the season, I guarantee the Jags would be right in the mix of the final wild card spot, despite all of Gene Smith’s wrong doings.
