Jaguars Release OT Guy Whimper, Two Others

The Jaguars have begun to remove some of the dead weight on the roster.  Some of the first cuts in GM Dave Caldwell’s tenure include massively overpaid right tackle Guy Whimper, quarterback John Parker Wilson, and defensive back Brandon King.

I’m perfectly alright with these moves.

The Jags need improvement at right tackle and Whimper was simply a major part of the problem.  He received a contract extension under ex-GM Gene Smith after playing terribly.  He and Cameron Bradfield showed a lot to be desired during their time as the primary players in rotation on the right side of the offensive line.  The Jags are now on the path to recovery.  Wilson and King were low on the depth chart and rather inconsequential.

As the Jags continue to focus on getting rid of non-helpful/non-contributing pieces, expect more players who don’t see the field or have bloated salaries to be released.
