The Jaguars released offensive tackle Guy Whimper, defensive back Brandon King and quarterback John Parker Wilson on Wednesday, according to a report from John Oehser of Jaguars.com. Whimper was signed by the Jaguars in November 2010 and made 21 starts for the team, mostly at right tackle.
General manager Dave Caldwell was asked who would start at the right tackle position at the 2013 NFL Combine if the team were to play the next day and he didn't exactly give a ringing endorsement to the talent on the team, although he wasn't particularly inflammatory either. "Good thing we don't play tomorrow," Caldwell said. "We have some guys that can compete there - we still have Guy (Whimper) and Cam Bradfield and both of them have experience in the league."
Whimper had far from a huge contract, but he was scheduled to count $1.825 million against the salary cap for the Jaguars in 2013, according to Spotrac, the 19th biggest cap hit on the team, ahead of players like Andre Branch, Russell Allen and Cecil Shorts III.
King was signed to the practice squad in November 2012 and never saw the active roster, while Wilson spent the entire 2012 season on the Jaguars practice squad with the exception of two days in the end of October when he was added to the active roster for one game.
