The Jacksonville Jaguars have cut defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks, according to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. It was inevitable with the signing of free agent defensive lineman Cailas Campbell earlier this afternoon.

The Jaguars were actively shopping Marks all of last week, but it seems they didn’t find any takers.
Marks registered 3.5 sacks this year as he looked to get comfortable in a backup role. Marks didn't really adjust to his new role as much as we expected, saying he wasn't happy about being "a damn backup." He said he felt "slapped in the face." Although he did look quick and explosive at times, the low point of the season will always be that fourth down offsides penalty.
This move certainly has big implications for Sheldon Day. Day can offer you similar production with a higher upside due to his youth, so I certainly don't question the merits of this decision.
