NFL roster cut tracker 2016: Who's in, who's out for Jaguars?

The Jaguars need to trim their roster to 75 players by Tuesday. We’ll have all the news, rumors, and information as it rolls in.

NFL: Preseason-Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

With the regular season upon us, so comes with it the cutting of players.

While all eyes will be on the cut down to the 53-man roster at the beginning of September, the Jacksonville Jaguars have to get things started by trimming rosters down from a maximum of 90 players to 75 before the end of August.

Teams have until August 30 to whittle down to 75 players, less than a week before the September 3 deadline to get the rosters to 53. But players who receive the pink slip a few days early typically have a harder time earning a valuable spot on a practice squad. For most players, not earning a spot on a 75-man roster means that getting on another roster at all could be a challenge.

We’re keeping track of all the players who didn’t get a spot on the 75-man rosters and were informed of their release.

10:30 AM: It’s not a 75-man roster prediction, but it should give you some indication of who we think are the best 53 players on this roster. It’ll be interesting to see who the additional 22 players include.
