Jaguars Likely to Release OG Justin Smiley

According to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville Jaguars offensive guard Justin Smiley is no where to be seen and will likely be released today at 4:01 PM when teams can officially cut players. I was getting ready to do a post about possible releases for the Jaguars, and Smiley was going to be at the top of the list.

Justin Smiley is not with the offense. He has likely been released.

The Jaguars traded a conditional 7th round pick to the Miami Dolphins last off-season for guard Justin Smiley. Smiley has been oft-injured in his career and missed some practices, but started the year as the Jacksonville Jaguars starting left guard. He was replaced by veteran guard Vince Manuwai against the Buffalo Bills and was relegated to back up duty ever since. Smiley was due about $2 million in salary this year, which is a bit much for an oft-injured back up interior lineman, especially when the team drafted a young guard in Will Rackley.
