Jaguars' cuts

9/1/2009

The Jaguars trimmed their roster to 75 Tuesday.

They waived four rookies:

Tight end Jared Lorenzen

Defensive tackle Jervonte Jackson

Wide receiver Clarence Denmark

Wide receiver Maurice Dupree

The team also placed cornerback Don Carey on injured reserve.

GM Gene Smith took some heat in Cleveland in early August when the Jaguars claimed Carey after the Browns waived him injured. Such claims are rare, and the Browns certainly hoped to retain a player who was a sixth-round pick. But the Jaguars clearly feel Carey could help them down the road and didn’t break any rules by claiming him and dedicating a roster spot to him until now, something Cleveland was unwilling to do.
