The Jacksonville Jaguars will start trimming down their roster soon and their bout against the Miami Dolphins in the preseason finale will probably play a role in the evaluation process. Even though the game finished early due to an injury receiver Daewood Davis sustained, the Jags have more than three quarters worth of tape to assess.

While some players took advantage of the opportunity in the finale, others failed to seize it. In particular, these four could be barely hanging onto a roster spot after an underwhelming performance. And even if they make they survive the first round of cuts, they could get the boot once the Jaguars take a dive into the waiver wire.

No. 4 Jaguars player barely hanging onto a roster spot: Shaquille Quarterman, LB

The Jaguars have done a good job of revamping their linebacker corps since the end of the 2021 season. Since then, the Jags have signed Foyesade Oluokun and drafted Chad Muma, Devin Lloyd and Ventrell Miller.

The only holdover from before Doug Pederson became the head coach is Shaquille Quarterman. In fact, he joined the Jags when Doug Marrone was still at the helm. However, his days with the Black and Teal could soon come to an end.

Leaving aside all the additions the Jaguars made to their linebacker corps, Quarterman hasn't done much to prove he deserves a roster spot in 2023. Mainly a special teams contributor, the former Miami Hurricane has struggled in coverage in the preseason. To make matters worse, he missed three tackles in the finale against the Dolphins.

Heading into the 2023 season, it's simply hard to see Quarterman making the cut over Miller, a fourth-round pick in this year's draft, or even Caleb Johnson.
