NFL rosters have to cut 15 players by August 26, so keep track of the Jaguars cuts here.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will have to release 15 players by August 26th, as the NFL requires all teams to make their first cuts by that date to get down to 75 players. This means that last Friday might have been the last time some of these players play a down in the NFL, or at the least in a Jaguars uniform.
NFL teams must make their final cuts by August 30th, bringing their roster to 53 players. Teams can now also bring back 10 players on their practice squad, according to new expansion rules.
We will try to keep track of all the cuts live on this post, so if you see something be sure to drop it in the comments and it will get added to the list. Often times, teams will make their first wave of cuts all at once, so if that happens to be the case, we can use this post as an open thread discussion the cuts.
