The Jacksonville Jaguars decided to start trimming some of the fat on the roster before training camp by releasing undrafted rookie free agent Jordan Rodgers. Coming out of Vanderbilt, Rodgers and quarterback Matt Scott from Arizona headlined a rather strong undrafted rookie class. Florida Times-Union beat reporter Ryan O’Halloran implied on Twitter the roster move was made because Rodgers was hurt.
It must suck to be the crappy brother of a QB family. Jordan Palmer, Jordan Rodgers etc. That's some tough sibling jealousy

After acquiring Mike Kafka from waivers, it seemed the Jaguars would go into training with 5 quarterbacks. Currently Jacksonville will open camp with Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne, and Matt Scott to go along with Mike Kafka.
I’ve already discussed the lack of logic involved with starting Chad Henne let alone keeping him on the roster. The more likely scenario is Henne will be cut if he doesn’t win the starting job. I fully expect him to be released before the beginning of the regular season.

I’ve also discussed how many quarterbacks the Jaguars should keep. I predicted the team would keep three quarterbacks – Gabbert, Kafka, and Scott. Now with Jordan Rodgers out of the picture, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jaguars keep two quarterbacks and relegate someone – probably Matt Scott – to the practice squad.
