The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed DL Marcus Hardison to their practice squad on Wednesday, according to his agent Michael Hoffman. The Jaguars officially released OL Jeremiah Poutasi from the unit.
The Jaguars practice squad currently consists of:
- RB Tim Cook
- DE Hunter Dimick
- OL Avery Gennesy (Injured)
- TE David Grinnage
- OL Chris Reed (Exception)
- OLB Carroll Phillips
- CB Raysean Pringle
- DT Darius Kilgo (Exception)
- WR Larry Pinkard
- WR Jayden Mickens
- DL Marcus Hardison
Hardison, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2015. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.625 million contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season when the Bengals waived him coming out of the preseason.
Unfortunately, Hardison spent the 2016 season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
Hardison has yet to appear in an NFL game.
Poutasi, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in May of 2015. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.385 million rookie contract when the Titans cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
The Jaguars signed him to their practice squad just a few days later and was eventually promoted to the active roster. Jacksonville decided to waive him coming out of the preseason and he’s been on and off of their practice squad ever since.
In 2016, Poutasi appeared in one game for the Jaguars.
