Nkang began last season on the physically unable to perform list because of a wrist injury. He had seven special teams tackles and a forced fumble in seven games before being lost in December with a shoulder injury. He set a franchise record with 30 special teams tackles as a rookie in 2007 after being drafted in the seventh round out of Elon.
The Jaguars also cut running back Mike McLendon, a rookie free agent from North Alabama signed after last month's draft.
