The Jaguars were a busy organization this past weekend.
On Saturday morning, the team waived rookie running back Tavien Feaster, first-year offensive lineman Tyler Gauthier, rookie offensive lineman Steven Nielsen, and rookie kicker Brandon Wright. The team also released third-year safety Doug Middleton.
2020 free agent signing defensive tackle Rodney Gunter was placed on the Active/Non-Football Illness list.
At that point, the Jaguars got their active roster down to 80 players. By cutting their roster number down to 80, the Jaguars are allowed to have all players at the facility at the same time, including during practice. The Jaguars won't need to trim the roster down from 80 to 53 until September 5th.
Sunday afternoon, the club announced that defensive tackles Brian Pope and Dontavis Russell were both placed on the Injured Reserve, which put the roster at 78.
Finally, Sunday evening, the Jaguars signed veteran cornerback Tramaine Brock, defensive tackle Card Davis, and defensive lineman Caraun Reid. In a subsequent move, the team waived rookie cornerback Kobe Williams.
The most significant move here is the signing of Tramaine Brock. The lengthy 11-year vet will replace Rashaan Melvin on the depth chart and could push Tre Herndon for playing time on the outside. Brock most recently played for the Titans. In 2019 he allowed a completion percentage of 62 in coverage. He adds veteran leadership and experience to a cornerback room that was lacking in that department.
