Jaguars Make a Few Roster Moves, Release Nate Hughes

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars made a few roster moves, of which they seem to be doing daily. Yesterday, the Jaguars officially moved tight end Marcedes Lewis off of the "did not report" list onto the 90-man training camp roster. As you know, Lewis had been holding on in hopes of getting a new contract, but reported to camp yesterday to be with his teammates. The Jaguars also moved long-snapped Jeremy Cain from the non-football injury list to the 90-man roster.

To make room on the roster, the Jaguars released undrafted rookie linebacker Eric Gordan and wide receiver Nate Hughes. Hughes has been with the Jaguars since 2009, playing a bit during the season. Most remember him for dropping two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals and being released the next day. Hughes was one of those wide receivers who always stood out in training camp, but just not quite enough to make the active roster.

The Jaguars also signed rookie undrafted offensive lineman Wade Grayson, who played at Arkansas.

Grayson, 6'4" 302 pounds, was a two-year starter at Arkansas. He was part of an offensive line in 2010 that paved the way for the first season in Arkansas history with a 3,000-yard passer and 1,000-yard rusher. He started the final 10 games of his junior campaign.
