Jaguars Officially Release CB Will Blackmon

Update:

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced the release of veteran CB Will Blackmon on Thursday.

———

Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reported this morning that the Jaguars will release CB Will Blackmon.

According to Garafolo, the Jaguars are expected to get younger in the secondary.

Even though Blackmon is being released, Garafolo still expects him to find a new opportunity with another team.

Blackmon, 30, still had one year remaining on his two-year, $1.875 million contract he had signed with the Jaguars in March of last year.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Blackmon will free up $920,000 in available cap space while creating $25,000 in dead money.

In 2014, Blackmon appeared in eight games and recorded 30 tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 85 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
