Jaguars roster cuts tracker: Jacksonville trims roster to 53

With the preseason wrapped up, the Jacksonville Jaguars have until Saturday at 4:00 p.m. EST to cut their roster from 90 players down to 53. No more intermediate cuts to 75 like in years past — just one cut that nearly cuts a training camp roster in half.

The overall cut down shouldn't be that difficult this season. Thursday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons (and who didn’t dress and who played more snaps than anticipated) showed us most of the roster.

Today might be a bit slow, but you never know when some players will be notified about their status. Some teams like to cut particular players early as a way to be respectful and give them a leg up in landing another job. That’s what Friday will probably look like.

If you see a cut, post it in the comments, but please try to make sure it's from a legitimate source and link the source. When we have the full list of cuts we'll make a new post to discuss the real final 53-man roster.
