The Jaguars have made a slew of roster moves over the last several weeks and especially over the last couple of days. The team was, again, busy on Monday afternoon.
Rookie LB Justin Horton, from Jacksonville University, went through waivers unclaimed and is now on the Jaguars Injured Reserve list.
In some exciting news the Jaguars added fourth year CB and Jacksonville native Charles James. James was the star of the hit HBO series Hard Knocks in 2015 as a member of the Houston Texans. James was a versatile player for the Texans and even got play at running back for the team in 2015 training camp.
James was released by the Buffalo Bills two days ago. In his short career James has played for the Giants, Texans, Ravens, Colts, Bills, and now the Jaguars.
Originally from Jacksonville, James attended Mandarin High School prior to playing his college ball at Charleston Southern. The 5'9'' CB has always been an underdog. But his enduring spirit and engaging personality have helped him to stick around in the league since 2013.
And he'll get his opportunities in Jacksonville. The Jaguars are paper thin at CB right now with Aaron Colvin on the PUP list and Jalen Ramsey slowly making his way back from an offseason core muscle surgery. AJ Bouye is the only starting CB that's practicing fully at this point. Charles James will compete with Doran Grant, Tyler Patmon, Jalen Myrick, and Brian Dixon, among others for one of the final cornerback spots on the team.
In order to make room for James the Jaguars parted ways with undrafted rookie wide receiver Kenneth Walker. Walker had drawn praise from Doug Marrone early in the process, but failed to stand out amongst the impressive group of receivers on the Jaguars roster.
