Jaguars release Tiquan Underwood, 4 others

The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced the release of five players this morning via twitter.

Jaguars waive 5 players: WR Tiquan Underwood, S Michael Hamlin, LB Slade Norris, kicker Sam Swank, punter Brent Bowden

There is only one of these cuts that surprises me, and that's safety Michael Hamlin. I thought he had had a solid training camp and didn't really see anything glaringly wrong in the two preseason games. I hope however, that this doesn't mean Don Carey will find his way on the roster again... Carey was behind Hamlin in the safety rotation.

Other than that, I think most of these we could see coming. I said last week, I'd have cut Tiquan Underwood immediately following the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was just stealing reps from the other wide receivers who could actually catch the football. This was the second time Underwood has been released from the roster. He was originally released in 2009 in final cuts and later signed to the practice squad.

The team is now down to 85 players. They will need to reach 80 by 4:00 P.M. EST on Tuesday with the final cut down to 53 due by Saturday, September 3rd.
