On the eve of players reporting for minicamp, the Jaguars made two minor roster moves, releasing fourth-year offensive tackle Charles Spencer and second-year fullback Anthony Cotrone.
Spencer was a third-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2006 and was signed by the Jaguars as a free agent on Sept. 3, 2008. Cotrone joined the club as a rookie free agent in 2008 but spent the entire 2008 season on injured reserve.
The team took a flier on bringing Spencer in last season. He was still coming back from a broken leg suffered with Houston in 2006. He was on the Jaguars' roster for 15 games but didn't play at all.
Cotrone's knee must be healed up. The Jaguars have Greg Jones as their primary fullback -- and intend to give him carries too in the post-Fred Taylor era. Special teams ace Montell Owens is Jones' his backup.
