  11. DB Demetrius McCray

Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.

McCray, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2013. He spent three years in Jacksonville before he was, unfortunately, among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

Since becoming a free agent, McCray has worked out for the Lions, Seahawks, Browns, Panthers, and Broncos but was never signed to a contract from any of those teams.

In 2015, McCray appeared in 14 games for the Jaguars and recorded 25 tackles and no interceptions.

Coe, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Akron back in May. He lasted just a few months with the Cowboys before he was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Buccaneers signed him to their practice squad a few weeks into the regular seasonĀ and was on and off of their active roster before eventually joining the Jaguars’ practice squad toward the end of the season.

During his college career, Coe recorded 83 tackles, 2.5 sacks, four pass defenses, a forced fumble and a recovery.
