The Jacksonville Jaguars trimmed their roster down to 75 players Sunday after cutting 12 players and placing one on injured reserve.
Long snapper Jeremy Cain was the most significant of the roster cuts. He had been with the Jaguars for seven seasons. Luke Ingram was also released, so Carson Tinker is the team's only long snapper.
Jacksonville also cut guard Mark Asper, punter Ken Parrish, cornerback Lionel Smith, linebacker Maalik Bomar, linebacker Jeremiah Green, defensive end J.D. Griggs, defensive end Paul Hazel, wide receiver Jamal Miles, safety Ray Polk and tackle Roderick Tomlin.
In addition to the cuts, the team placed seventh-round draft pick Jeremy Harris, a cornerback, on injured reserve with a back injury.
"This is never an easy day," general manager David Caldwell said in a statement. "Some tough decisions were made today. These players all came in and competed every day and we appreciate all the work they put into the building of our team. We wish them nothing but the best in the future."
Teams have until Tuesday to reduce rosters to 75.
