The Jacksonville Jaguars released eight players early Saturday to reduce their roster to 82, including seventh-year cornerback Ashton Youboty.
Also let go were running back DuJuan Harris (who tweeted the news early Saturday before the team announced it), two second-year players in wide receiver Chastin West and quarterback Nathan Enderle, first-year players linebacker Nate Bussey cornerback Mike Holmes, and two rookies in offensive tackle Dan Hoch and linebacker Donovan Richard.
NFL teams must reduce their rosters to 75 payers by Monday, Aug. 27 at 4 p.m., which means at least seven other Jaguars will see their names erased from the roster in the next couple of days. Final cuts to the 53-man roster must be made by Friday, Aug. 31.
Many of these Jaguars' last chances to shine came in Thursday night's preseason blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
