Jaguars Release Right Tackle

The Jaguars released their starting right tackle from this Sunday's game. Find out what the team could do with the empty roster spot.

When you lose a game 41-10, you're not surprised when some heads roll. It becomes less surprising when you take into account that the Jaguars offensive line yielded 10 sacks to the Washington Redskins defense. four sacks alone by Ryan Kerrigan who often lined up across from Cameron Bradfield, who fell on the sword.

According to the Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars waived Cam Bradfield who had started the team's first two games at right tackle. Bradfield was abysmal in the game and was benched in favor of Sam Young, the fifth-year journeyman from Notre Dame. Bradfield started 27 games for the Jaguars over the past four seasons, including 11 games last season when Luke Joeckel was placed on IR.

Starting right tackle Austin Pasztor had been out since preseason after breaking his hand and Bradfield's release could signal that Pasztor is ready to return to the lineup. If he isn't, Young will likely start this Sunday against Indianapolis.

Bradfield's release paves the way for the team to sign either a tight end to replace the injured Marcedes Lewis, or another tackle.
