Jaguars release quarterback Matt Scott

The Jaguars found a quarterback of the future in the draft, so they keep jettisoning quarterbacks of their past.

The Jaguars announced that Matt Scott was released Thursday in advance of rookie minicamp, via John Oehser of the team’s official website.

Scott spent last year on the Jags practice squad, after hanging around camp with the likes of Mike Kafka and Blaine Gabbert.

With Blake Bortles chosen with the third pick, any snaps that go beyond him and interim starter Chad Henne will be extraneous.
