Jaguars cut Mike Brewster on way to 57 players


The Jaguars signaled their desire to find a new center early in the offseason when they tried to sign Alex Mack away from the Browns and their failure to land their target hasn’t stopped them from moving on from the No. 1 man on the depth chart when camp opened.

Mike Brewster was cut on Friday as the Jaguars started making their way to the 53-man limit ahead of Saturday’s deadline. All told, the Jags made 18 moves on Friday to leave themselves with 57 players.

The Jags haven’t made a formal announcement about who will be starting at center for them this season, but Jacques McClendon got the nod in the team’s third preseason game with Luke Bowanko starting on Thursday night in the preseason finale. Brewster played 26 games and made 10 starts for the Jaguars last season.

In addition to the previously reported dismissal of quarterback Stephen Morris, the Jaguars also waived quarterback Ricky Stanzi, fullback Eric Kettani, guard Drew Nowak, defensive end Gerald Rivers, wide receiver Chad Bumphis, tackle Cody Booth, defensive lineman DeAndre Coleman, defensive tackle Ricky Havili-Heimuli, safety Craig Loston, kicker/punter Kasey Redfern, guard Tyler Shatley, tight end D.J. Tialavea and linebacker Marcus Whitfield. Tight end Brandon Barden was waived-injured with a groin injury.

Jacksonville wound up the day’s moves by placing wide receiver Tandon Doss and cornerback Rashaad Reynolds on injured reserve after they were hurt in the preseason finale against the Falcons.

    Three snaps in the preseason that go ten yards past the QB will do that.

    He’ll be back with a hundred trusty swordsmen to sack the village of Jacksonville.

    Brewster has the mean streak but his head is somewhere else when pressure hits him. Typical OS Buckeye product. Prob wind up in Chi town with his former head coach. Solid back up OL Guard nothing more.
