FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsThe Jacksonville Jaguars released veteran defensive tackle C.J. Mosley at the end of his third season in Jacksonville, the team announced on Monday.
 
Now, C.J. Mosley will be in search for his fifth NFL team, after spending eight-season in the league. The 6-2, 310-pound C.J. Mosley is expected to draw interest on the open market form teams looking to add interior-line depth.
 
C.J. Mosley started 16 of 39 games during his time with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He won the starting defensive tackle job from Terrance Kinghton during training camp and started 13 of 16 games in 2012. C.J. Mosley finished with 45 tackles (a career-best), 2.5 sacks and three fumbles last season.
 
The 29-year-old C.J. Mosley was in the second-season of a three-year, $7.5 million deal he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars last offseason. Accordingly, C.J. Mosley was scheduled to make $2.475 million in base salary for the 2013 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
 
Before initially signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010, C.J. Mosley also previously played for the Minnesota Vikings (2005), New York Jets (2006-2008) and Cleveland Browns (2009). C.J. Mosley started only a combined 21 games over throughout his career. Although C.J. Mosley mostly played in a reserve role during 2010, but played well during 2011 while Tyson Alualu was dealing with an injury, hence showing potential of taking more responsibility with a starting job.
 
With C.J. Mosley ‘s release following Terrance Knighton signing with the Denver Broncos this offseason, the Jacksonville Jaguars are thin at defensive tackle. The team is left with Roy Miller, Jeris Pendleton, Jerome Long, Tyron Alualu and D’Anthony Smith on the interior defensive line. However, the Jacksonville Jaguars did address the positon this offseason by signing former Buccaneers defensive tackle Roy Miller.
