Jaguars sign three undrafted rookies

AP

On their final day of their mandatory minicamp, the Jaguars added three undrafted rookies to their roster.

The club said Thursday it had signed wide receiver Nathan Slaughter, punter/kicker Kasey Redfern and long-snapper Charley Hughlett. All three tried for the Jaguars this week.

The 5-foot-9, 184-pound Slaughter played collegiately at West Texas A&M, catching 174 passes in his career. Redfern is a Wofford product, while Hughlett played at Central Florida.

In corresponding moves, the club waived rookie wideouts Kevin Smith and Brandon Wimberly. The team also released defensive end Jason Babin.

  1. They released Jason Babin? And this why the Jaguars are not very good. What team releases their leader in sacks from the previous year? Who on that team is gonna put up 7.5 sacks now? SMH

  2. Maybe Babin just figured he was getting too old to pack up and move the family to London. He’ll catch on with one of the “stateside” teams.

  3. @orecic76…..You still didn’t answer my question. Who on the Jaguars is going to put up 7.5 sacks this year with Babin gone? Maybe Bortles will play both ways? Caldwell got rid of every experienced receiver on the roster. Maybe they weren’t the best fit but you don’t get rid of all your veterans. Caldwell has yet to make a bad move? Chess Player? Wow.

  4. Um…Chris Clemons? Andre Branch? Dekoda Watson? A few other young guys we signed to fill the LEO spot.

    If you knew anything about the team, you’d know that is the one spot where there is actual depth in the team. 7.5 sacks for the year is not some kind of insurmountable stat that can’t be duplicated by someone else.

    Also, who are these veteran wide receivers the Jaguars cut loose? Are you thinking of the Panthers? Maybe? The only real veteran presence at wide receiver is Cecil Shorts and he is still very much a part of the team.
