Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell has drafted 25 players since joining the team in 2013, but only 24 of them remain on the roster as of Friday.
The Jaguars announced that they have waived wide receiver Ace Sanders, who was a fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Sanders played in 27 games during his two seasons with the Jags and caught 57 passes for 539 yards and a touchdown. He also served as the team’s main punt returner in each season, averaging 6.4 yards per return on 57 tries.
Sanders caught 51 passes as a rookie in 2013, but dropped to six last season after the Jags added several rookie receivers to the roster. Sanders also hurt himself by drawing a four-game suspension from the league for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
The Jaguars added Rashad Greene in the fifth round of this year’s draft and he’ll join Marquise Lee, Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Bryan Walters and Tandon Doss in the competition for roles in the now Ace-less receiving group. Walters, Greene and Doss could also contend for punt return duties.
