When the Jacksonville Jaguars selected wide receiver Rashad Greene in the fourth round of the NFL Draft, it meant that former South Carolina wideout Ace Sanders was going to have an uphill fight to make the roster.
Sanders' fight ended today as the team announced that it was waiving the third-year pro.
Ace is the first of Dave Caldwell's 25 draft picks to part ways with the Jaguars. His production dropped from 51 receptions as a rookie in 2013 to just six last season.
Sanders clearly hurt himself when he was issued a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Ace never turned out to be the special teams standout that he was touted to be. Now Rashad Greene, Bryan Walters and Tandon Doss will likely compete for the return duties.
