Early Friday afternoon word came out that the Jaguars cut Chris Ivory. This move came as a surprise to . . . no one. Ivory was a healthy scratch for the Jaguars multiple times towards the end of the 2017 season and was replaced by TJ Yeldon as the team's second running back.
Cutting Ivory isn't just a football move though. The Jaguars will save a big chunk of change, $3.75 million to be exact, by releasing Ivory, which will give them more cap space to address other team needs this offseason.
Ivory's time in Jacksonville was an overall disappointment. He had flashes, but never lived up to the pricey contract he signed two years ago. In total for the Jaguars Ivory rushed the ball 229 times for 821 yards and just four touchdowns. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry during his time in Jacksonville. He also fumbled the ball seven times in his two seasons here.
Even with out Ivory, the Jaguars running back room is very heatlhy. Moving forward they'll have potential star Leonard Fournette, third down specialist TJ Yeldon and speed back Corey Grant (if he doesn't leave as a restricted free agent).
