The Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran wide receiver Bryan Walters from injured reserve, the team announced on Wednesday morning. Walters have been waived with an injury designation a few weeks ago, which reverted him to injured reserve, but the team has now released him from injured reserve meaning that he can now sign with any team and is a free agent.
Walters, 29, originally joined the Jaguars in 2015 as a back up punt returner and eventually found his way into the rotation after the team suffered injuries at the position. Walters returned in 2016 in the same type of role, once again being added to the rotation after a handful of injuries at the position again.
The Jaguars can re-sign Walters if they choose, but due to NFL rules after a player has been released on an injury settlement, they must wait a minimum of six weeks after the amount of weeks agreed to in the injury settlement. That likely means Walters won’t be back with the Jaguars this season.
