Well the Jaguars offense has been disappointing in 2011 and now the Jaguars are making moves to rectify that. Jason Hill, the team's top receiver on the depth chart has been waived and replaced on the active roster by DuJuan Harris.

Hill looked like an intriguing new target for the Jaguars offense when he was claimed from the 49ers in the middle of the 2010 season, but ultimately failed as a starting receiver for the Jaguars, catching only 25 passes for 367 yards through 11 games. A potential game-winning pass was sent his way at the end of the game against the Cleveland Browns in week 11, but was dropped, only exacerbate the team's and the fans' frustrations.

Harris is a player that many fans have been calling for to be given a chance after a relatively productive preseason in which he scored a touchdown rushing and had a receiving touchdown.

Safety Courtney Greene was also announced as heading to the injured reserve, making him the team's league-leading 19th player to head to the list. CB Morgan Trent replaces Greene and gives the Jaguars another body in a now depleted secondary. Trent spent three years with the Bengals before being released where he spent a small amount of time with Indianapolis this month.

The Jaguars now have one open spot on their practice squad.
