All NFL teams had to cut down to the league mandated 53 man roster on Saturday. So, without further ado, let’s jump into the Jacksonville Jaguars Roster Cuts Recap.

The Jags got to work cutting players on Friday, dropping the team down to a far more manageable 57. Among those cut on Friday was oft-overwhelmed center Mike Brewster. The others were mostly undrafted rookies. Most notably, no 2014 draft picks were waived.

  • QB Ricky Stanzi
  • QB Stephen Morris
  • C Mike Brewster
  • OT Cody Booth
  • DL DeAndre Coleman
  • DT Ricky Havili-Heimuli
  • S Craig Loston
  • K Kasey Redfern
  • G Tyler Shatley
  • TE D.J. Tialavea
  • LB Marcus Whitfield
  • FB Eric Kattani
  • G Drew Nowak
  • DE Gerald Rivers
  • WR Chad Bumphis
  • TE Brandon Barden

The trend continued on Saturday, resulting in the following players being waived:

  • CB Jamel Flemming
  • S Sherrod Martin
  • LB Nate Stupar
  • WR Kerry Taylor

With all the Jaguars’ roster cuts in the books, the team looks exceptionally inexperienced in two areas: wide receiver and offensive line. After some superb play from undrafted rookie wide receiver Allen Hurns, the wide receiver group looks to be better off than the offensive line. However, if the quarterback isn’t given time to throw, it may not matter. Center Mike Brewster was a major disappointment in the preseason, resulting in his dismissal on Friday. His inability to improve his game opens it up for younger players, but it also maintains a weak spot in the Jags’ already weak interior offensive line. The Jags may still look to address their offensive line talent by keeping an eye on the waiver wire following Saturday’s cuts, but don’t expect anything major.

The Jaguars are a young, growing team and if the pieces in place as of Saturday are able to put it together at least somewhat in the next week, then the Jags could be in a much better place than we anticipated entering training camp.
