The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly cut third-string quarterback Brandon Allen, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.

There was some talk that Allen could be the first quarterback off the bench (not Chad Henne) if Blake Bortles struggled early in the season. I guess that’s no longer the case.

“He’s been a player now that has played well in games and not practiced as well as he’s played, consistently,” Marrone said last week. “He’s had good practices, obviously. I think when he gets in there, again, you’re looking to see can he keep doing the same thing? Can he make plays? Can he throw the ball? Can he stay in there? Can he take the punishment? Can he take the hits?”

You will be missed, Brandon. Godspeed.
