Jaguars make cuts, keep Auburn's Marshall, Grant for now
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) It looks like two undrafted rookies from Auburn will make Jacksonville's opening-day roster.
The Jaguars waived 18 players Friday and two Auburn players were not among the cuts. Quarterback Nick Marshall, who switched to cornerback in January, and former Tigers running Corey Grant, are still on the team.
That doesn't guarantee them roster spots, especially since Jacksonville still has 57 players on its roster. Teams have to reduce rosters to 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday.
Among the players waived were four draft picks from general manager Dave Caldwell's three years: cornerback Jeremy Harris (7th rounder in 2013), running back Storm Johnson (7th rounder in 2014), tight end Ben Koyack (7th rounder in 2015) and receiver Neal Sterling (7th rounder in 2015). Koyack and Sterling likely will land on the practice squad.
