The Jacksonville Jaguars trimmed down their roster to 53 players Tuesday. However, they'll keep making changes in the upcoming days to ensure they fill whatever voids they can before the start of the 2023 NFL season. They can start by putting in claims on a handful of players who have been waived. Similarly, they should pursue a few others who aren't subject to waivers.

Players who have fewer than four accrued seasons are subject to waivers while those who have at least more can sign with any team they please as soon as they get released. With that in mind, here are four players who were either waived or cut that the Jaguars must go after.

No. 4 player who could help the Jaguars immediately: Nicholas Morrow, OL

Nicholas Morrow signed with the Las Vegas (then Oakland) Raiders after going undrafted in 2017. After making the 53-man roster, the Greenville product worked his way up the depth chart and joined the starting lineup by the end of his rookie season.

Morrow went on to become a mainstay of the Raiders' defense, appearing in 56 games with 24 starts from 2018-2020. However, a torn ACL forced him to miss the 2021 season. He signed with the Chicago Bears last year and started all 17 games. The former Division III standout joined the Philadelphia Eagles in the offseason and seemed like a good bet to make the 53-man roster. However, he was given the boot and is free to sign with whichever team he pleases.

Although linebacker isn't a pressing need for the Jaguars, Morrow could add invaluable depth at the position. Jacksonville has a vested veteran in Foyesade Oluokun and a pair of promising sophomores in Devin Lloyd and Chad Muma. Having said that, Morrow would be an upgrade over Shaquille Quarterman by virtue of bringing ample experience and the ability to play safety, his position in college, to the Jags' back seven.
