The Jacksonville Jaguars released two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Kampman Thursday, saving $11.45 million in base salary that remained on the final two seasons of his contract. Kampman, 32, was set to make $4.975 million base salary in 2012.

Kampman signed a four-year, $25 million contract with the Jaguars in 2010 and was productive that season before tearing the ACL in his right knee.
