After finishing 1-15 last year, the Jacksonville Jaguars have spent the offseason adding playmakers to the roster. This means that not every player that was with the team in 2020 will return this upcoming season. Maurice Moton believes defensive tackle Taven Bryan is one of those players. He recently wrote about players that could be surprising cuts this offseason and the Florida product was the pick for the Jaguars.

Moton points out that Bryan has never played more than 47 percent of the team’s total snaps in a season and believes the 2018 first-round pick will have a hard time cracking Jacksonville’s defensive line rotation. The Jags traded for Malcom Brown this offseason and drafted Jay Tufele in this year’s selection meeting. Moton is right, the odds of Bryan making the roster are bleak but he wouldn’t necessarily be a surprising cut.

The 29th overall pick in 2018’s draft has been a non-factor over his three-year career. In fact, Doug Costin and DaVon Hamilton outplayed Bryan last year and it looked like the writing was on the wall for him when the team declined to exercise the fifth-year option on his rookie deal.

There’s also Tim Tebow. The 2010 first-round pick may or may not make the 53-man roster but it wouldn’t shock anyone if he didn’t. He has been out of football for several years and is making the switch from quarterback to tight end at age 33. Having head coach Urban Meyer on his corner will help him achieve his goal and will give him a chance others wouldn’t normally get. Nevertheless, nobody would bat an eye if the Jags moved on from him before the 2021 season. Here are other cuts that wouldn’t surprise anyone.
