Jaguars waive WR Jamar Newsome to make room for WR Chastin West | jacksonville.com
Jamar Newsome was one of three undrafted rookies to make the Jaguars' opening day roster, but Jacksonville is looking elsewhere for receiver depth.

I heartily disagree; there is quite a bit to be gained by doing it now.
