Following two days of actively adding players, the Jacksonville Jaguars cleared some space on their roster by waiving first-year defensive end Jerome Long and first-year wide receiver Jerrell Jackson on Monday.

Jerrell Jackson initially joined the league as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans in 2012. But later in the season, Jerrell Jackson signed onto the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad and was promoted to the active roster for the season finale against the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 30. Jerrell Jackson had just one special teams tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.

Meanwhile, Jerome Long was signed off the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad by the Jacksonville Jaguars late last December. Although the Jacksonville Jaguars added Jerome Long just two days before the season finale against the Tennessee Titans, which suggested they felt a need at wide receiver, the 23-year-old still remained inactive for the game.

The release of both Jerrell Jackson and Jerome Long place the Jacksonville Jaguars back under the league maximum for the offseason roster – which stands at 90 players. The Jacksonville Jaguars already have 59 players under contract and signed 23 rookie free agents, after they went unselected in the NFL Draft this weekend.

To recap, here’s a look at the 23 undrafted free agents signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past two days:
  • T.J. Banes, LB, Georgia Tech
  • Maalik Bomar, LB, Cincinnati
  • Marcus Burley, CB, Delware
  • R.J. Dill, OT, Rutgers
