Oh, now we’ve come... to the end of the roooooooooooaaaaaddddd...
The Jacksonville Jaguars have to get down to 53 players on their roster by 4:00pm EST today and that means cuts, cuts, and more cuts. We’re tracking every move by this team as well as throwing in a few nuggets from around the league that Urban Meyer & Co. will have interest in.
Let’s do this!
3:47 PM: The 53-man roster is set. Whew. We’ll have reactions shortly, but... going light on running back and wide receivers seems to tell me they’re gonna make a few claims in the next 24 hours.

1:22 PM: Sadness. Jeff Cotton has been released.
