Now that the preseason is officially over, the Jacksonville Jaguars will soon begin their 2019 NFL roster cuts. The Jaguars have until 4:00pm EST on Saturday, August 31 to get their roster down to the regular season 53-player limit.

Stay tuned to this thread for lives updates on roster cuts, trades, rumors, and more. The Jaguars might not officially confirm their roster moves until Saturday afternoon but some of their moves will slowly leak out through media reports before then.

Roster cuts and updates

8:25 PM: Not art. Picasso Nelson had an interception too. Great read of the defense on the play, smart guy.

5:37 PM: A pair of tight ends is gone — Donnie Ernsberger and Ethan Wolf. Neither really stood out in the preseason (and the tight ends group is pretty weak as a whole) but both should be practice squad candidates.

5:05 PM: A pair of defensive linemen gone. Kalani Vakameilalo and Michael Hughes weren’t going to make the team anyway.

4:59 PM: I had Josh Wells on my 53-man roster prediction, as did Alfie Crow. For me, it was less about how good he was but how bad his competition is. If Leonard Wester makes it, so help me...

4:15 PM: Jaguars officially announced they have released DL Datone Jones, RB Thomas Rawls, OL Josh Wells and LB Ramik Wilson, and releasing LB Davis Tull via injury settlement, bringing their roster down to 85 players. More or less most of the bubble vested veterans.

2:58 PM: Another rookie cornerback hits the waiver wire. Tae Hayes had a decent outing this preseason, but the cornerbacks room is stacked.

2:28 PM: What the heck happened to Jake Ryan this offseason?

2:07 PM: C.J. Reavis is the second most surprising cut behind Datone Jones. I do not get it.

1:19 PM: I like the idea of putting in a waiver claim for Pharoh Cooper.

1:04 PM: Before you ask, no. We should not sign Shane Ray.

12:31 PM: Interesting. Brandon Marshall would be good for the Jaguars... if he’s willing to come back. They need a lot of help at linebacker.

11:20 AM: And just like that The Goo is gone, but he will likely be back on the practice squad.

10:20 AM: A little context on the Datone Jones cut. Maybe they bring him back? I don’t know. I think he gets snatched up off waivers before the season starts, honestly.

10:13 AM: Two more cuts — veteran wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and rookie cornerback Saivion Smith. Not surprised by either of these.

9:48 AM: Our first (reported) cut. Veteran defensive tackle Datone Jones is gone. Surprised, honestly. I thought he played more than well enough to earn a spot on the final roster.

9:40 AM: We’ve got our 53-man roster predictions right here!

9:28 AM: Need some help figuring out who to keep an eye on when it comes to waiver wire pickups for Jacksonville? We got you.

9:26 AM: The Jaguars roster currently stands at 90 players. 37 moves to make before the deadline.
