Jaguars Release S Doug Middleton, Sign Two To PS, Place K Josh Lambo On IR

The Jaguars announced in addition to placing K Josh Lambo on injured reserve, they have released S Doug Middleton and signed K Aldrick Rosas and OL Garrett McGhin to the practice squad. 

Because this is Lambo’s second stint on injured reserve this season, he is ineligible to return after aggravating a gluteus medius injury

Rosas was recently suspended four weeks by the NFL, so he might not be instantly available for Jacksonville. 

Rosas, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Oregon back 2017. He was unfortunately waived by Tennessee coming out of the preseason and never signed to a team’s practice squad during the regular season.

The Giants signed Rosas to a futures contract for the 2018 season and he went on to have a Pro Bowl season. He re-signed as an exclusive rights free agent in 2019 but was released this past summer following a DUI. 

Rosas had a stint on the Jaguars’ practice squad earlier this season. 

In 2019, Rosas converted 12 of 17 field-goal attempts (70.6 percent) to go along with 35 of 39 extra-point tries (89.7 percent).

Lambo, 29, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M back in 2015. He spent just over two years with the Chargers before he was waived at the start of the 2017 season.

The Jaguars later signed him to a contract during the 2017 season and he has been in Jacksonville ever since.

Lambo was in line to be an unrestricted free agent last year when he agreed to a four-year extension worth $15.5 million and $6.5 million in full guarantees. 

In 2020, Lambo has appeared in four games for the Jaguars and converted all five of his field goal attempts and 8 of 10 extra point tries.

Middleton, 26, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Appalachian State back in 2016. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.

Middleton was on and off of the Jets roster over the next two years before eventually catching on with the Dolphins last year. 

Since then, Middleton has had brief stints with the Jaguars and Titans. He’s been on and off Jacksonville’s roster this season. 

In 2019, Middleton appeared in three games for the Jaguars and Dolphins and recorded two tackles.
