The Jacksonville Jaguars will officially sign 17 undrafted free agents on Monday afternoon, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. This means the team will also need to release six players currently on the roster.

UPDATE:

The Jaguars have started releasing players already, starting with guard Will Rackley and wide receiver Jeremy Ebert. The Jaguars have also made the list below of UDFA signings official.

ORIGNAL ARTICLE:

NFL teams can have 90 players on their roster right now, of which the players picked in the 2014 NFL Draft do not count against. Prior to the UDFA signings, the Jaguars roster sat at 79 players, which means anything over the number of 11 would require players getting released.
