After Sunday's 44-17 blowout loss to the Indianapolis Colts, the Jaguars decided to make some roster moves as Gus Bradley tries to find talent that will work in his system.
Gone is veteran safety Chris Prosinski (waived/injured designation), leaving just two players on the roster from the 2007-2011 drafts (Tyson Alualu and Cecil Shorts). Prosinski was a former fourth round pick (2011) who the Jaguars tried out at both cornerback and safety, where they couldn't find a spot where he was effective. Ultimately, Prosinski settled into a backup safety role along with playing special teams.
The team also waived wide receiver Kerry Taylor as well as tight end Marcel Jensen, both of which were with the team during the preseason.
To replace Prosinski, the Jaguars re-signed safety Sherrod Martin, who had spent training camp and the offseason with the team. Martin was a former second-round pick by the Carolina Panthers in 2009 from Troy.
Jacksonville also plucked a pair of players off practice squads, as they selected linebacker Jeremiah George from the Jets practice squad as well as tight end Nic Jacobs from the Saints. George was a fifth-round pick by the Jets this past May and is a bit undersized at linebacker (5-foot-11, 234 pounds). The rookie earned All-Big 12 honors as a senior at Iowa State.
Nic Jacobs was an undrafted free agent who signed with the Saints shortly after the draft. He played his senior year at McNeese State before transferring from LSU. At 6-foot-5, 269 pounds, Jacobs has prototypical size at the tight end position.
