NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Jags released receiver Terrelle Pryor, defensive tackle Datone Jones, and rookie cornerback Saivion Smith.
Pryor signed with the Jags this offseason after six games with the New York Jets and two games with the Buffalo Bills in 2018. While the 6-foot-4 Pryor offered a veteran presence in a Jags offense littered with young receivers, he didn't flash enough in camp to make the squad. The tweaked hamstring in the third preseason tilt likely didn't aid matters. It's fair to wonder if it's the end of the line for the 30-year-old.
Jones, a 2013 first-round pick by the Green Bay Packers, earned praise throughout Jags camp and compiled 11 tackles during the preseason and a blocked field goal in Thursday's finale. The Jags' depth along the line, however, likely blocked the 29-year-old's path to making the roster. Jones could land with a team not as flush with talent upfront.
