NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the team has released the former Colts draft pick after Werner failed to climb the depth chart during the preseason.
After struggling at inside linebacker in Indy, Werner was hoping a switch to defensive end in Jacksonville would reignite his career, but the fourth-year pass-rusher is instead looking for work.
We expect Werner to get another chance as injuries mount league-wide, but the former Florida State star is running out of chances to make an NFL team.
"Our entire organization appreciates everything that John Sullivan has done for this franchise," general manager Rick Spielman said in a statement. "Sullivan led our team, not only with how he played the game, but also with how he handled himself in our community. We wish John Sullivan and his family nothing but the best as they move forward."
