This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the Jaguars were going to be over the roster limit when signing their 16 undrafted free agents. Most of these sound like computer-generated fake names, so it’s really much ado about nothing.
Here are the full names and positions of each of the players released.
EJ Bibbs - Tight End
Bronson Hill- Runningback
Colin Kelly - Offensive Lineman
Sean Porter - Linebacker
Daryl Richardson - Runningback
Gannon Sinclair - Tight end
Elijah Shumate - Safety
Arturo Uzdavinis - Offensive Lineman
Greg Van Roten - Offensive Lineman
Tony Washington - Wide receiver
Raphael Kirby - Linebacker
There initially was a little bit of a let down on social media about the Jaguars releasing wide receiver Shane Wynn, but rest assured, he is safe for now.
Shane Wynn, it's your lucky day -- you're still on the #Jaguars. ... Raphael Kirby has been cut.— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) May 1, 2017
Outside of the Wynn momentary freak out, I’d say the most recognizable names are Tony Washington and Bronson Hill. As you can plainly see, this really isn’t too big of a deal, as all of these guys were bottom of the roster players who had a very minimal chance of making the final 53 as it was.
