Jacksonville figured out its 53-man roster a day early.

On Friday the Jaguars announced 21 roster moves, which reduced their roster from 75 players to 54. The Jaguars will also place Justin Blackmon on the reserve/suspended list on Saturday when he officially begins his four-game suspension, and that will get their roster down to the 53-man limit.

The Jaguars’ roster moves included cutting receiver Jeremy Ebert, defensive end Pannel Egboh, running back Jonathan Grimes, quarterback Mike Kafka, linebacker Brandon Marshall, receiver Charly Martin, tackle Pat McQuistan, guard Drew Nowak, cornerback Kevin Rutland, defensive tackle D’Anthony Smith, linebacker Julian Stanford, cornerback Marcus Trufant, receiver Toney Clemons, defensive end Ryan Davis, defensive tackle T.J. Barnes, offensive tackle R.J. Dill, tight end Ryan Otten, receiver Tobais Palmer, quarterback Matt Scott, safety Steven Terrell and linebacker Mike Zimmer.

The Jaguars’ 53-man roster may not be completely finalized, as they could still pick up players who get cut by other teams. But for now, they’re at the magic number of 53.

    Stanzi decisively won the third quarterback spot during the game last night. He was the only one who didn’t play.

    Damn, RIP Marcus Trufant.

    Cannot believe Chris Prosinski is still on this roster. Dude should get a tattoo that says “liability.” Hopefully some other DB replaces him by Monday. Congrats to Abry Jones for making the squad. Pannel Egboh had better be on the practice squad.

    Egboh and Davis get released while Andre Branch gets a spot? What a crime.

    Surprised to see Marcus Trufant released. Seemed that, given his history with Gus Bradley on the Seahawks, he had landed in a good spot for them to continue working together. Hope he is picked up.

    Mike Kafka is unemployed again, I wonder if his agent has told him to start learning the words to O
    Canada, the last I checked Winnipeg Blue Bombers own his rights in the CFL and that team has one 2 games this year and the blue bombers have been wanting him for at least three years. Just in case Mike needs a little help the first line goes O Canada, our home and native land true patriot love in all thy sons command :-).
