The Jacksonville Jaguars have several building blocks in place, including Trevor Lawrence, outside linebacker Josh Allen, linebacker Foyesade Oluokun, and tight end Evan Engram. They also have several unsung contributors such as tight end Luke Farrell or safety Andre Wingard.

All of them should be part of the Jags' plans in 2024. On the other hand, there are other players who haven't done enough to warrant a roster spot next season. Whether it's injuries or underperforming, these four players may not be on the team come September.

4. Shaquille Quarterman, linebacker

The Jaguars' 2020 draft class will go down as one of the worst in team history. Out of all the picks former general manager Dave Caldwell made, only defensive end DaVon Hamilton has gotten a contract extension. Not surprisingly, Caldwell was given the boot near the end of 2020.

Granted, some of the players Jacksonville drafted in 2020 have gone on to fill roles on special teams, but it's fair to say that the Jags expected a bit more out of that year's class. Linebacker Shaquille Quarterman, for example, hasn't done much of note during his four-year stint in Jacksonville.

This season, Quarterman has only played eight defensive snaps and has been mostly relegated to special teams. Simply, he's not made enough plays to earn a contract extension. Add the eventual return of fellow linebacker Ventrell Miller, who's out for the year with an Achilles injury, and it's hard to see a scenario in which Quarterman returns in 2024.

You could argue that Quarterman was a fourth-round pick and expectations should be adjusted accordingly. However, the Jaguars could easily find a player who replaces his production in the later rounds of the 2024 draft.
