The Jacksonville Jaguars are releasing veteran running back Toby Gerhart to make room for new signing Chris Ivory, according to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network.
The #Jaguars are releasing RB Toby Gerhart tomorrow, source said. Makes sense with the Chris Ivory signing— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2016
Ivory reportedly reached an agreement with the Jaguars late Tuesday night and it wouldn't make any sense to keep Gerhart on the roster when the team signed a faster, stronger version of him who will probably be able to score at least once out of four tries from the 1-yard line.
If you need any further proof that Ivory is an upgrade on what we currently had (and is a very good fit as a complement to T.J. Yeldon) look no further than the above clips which shows Gerhart's complete lack of strength and vision on four straight runs from the 1-yard line against the Buffalo Bills.
