Cut day: C Mike Brewster, QBs Ricky Stanzi and Stephen Morris waived

Posted Aug 29, 2014

Jaguars make 18 roster moves, including the waive of C Mike Brewster and QBs Ricky Stanzi and Stephen Morris.


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars’ season-opening number at quarterback is two.

That became evident Friday when the team made 18 roster moves, placing two players on the injured reserve list and waiving 16 others. Among the players waived were quarterbacks Ricky Stanzi and Stephen Morris.

Also waived: third-year veteran Mike Brewster, who began training camp and the first two preseason games as the starting center before playing as a reserve in the final two preseason games.

Waiving Stanzi and Morris left starter Chad Henne and backup Blake Bortles as the two remaining quarterbacks on the roster.

Friday’s moves reduced the roster to 57 players, with NFL teams having until Saturday at 4 p.m. to reduce rosters to the league-mandated, regular-season limit of 53.

“Competition is our central theme and all of these players competed on a daily basis,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said in a statement. “This is always a tough day because you are letting go of men that played a vital role in what we are building here.

“We will continue to compete to build the best roster possible as we head into the regular season.”

Tandon Doss, a veteran wide receiver who re-aggravated an ankle injury in Thursday’s preseason finale against Atlanta, was placed on injured reserve. Rookie cornerback Rashaad Reynolds, who fractured a hand Thursday, also was placed on injured reserve.

Doss, who signed with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent from Baltimore this past offseason, missed the on-field portion of the team’s offseason workouts with a calf injury, and then sustained an ankle injury early in training camp. He played early in the preseason finale, returning two punts before aggravating the injury.

In addition to Stanzi and Brewster, the team also waived veteran guard Drew Nowak and defensive end Gerald Rivers. Two first-year players, wide receiver Chad Bumphis and fullback Eric Kettani, were waived and first-year tight end Brandon Barden (groin) was waived/injured.

Including Morris, nine rookies were waived with the others being offensive tackle Cody Booth, defensive lineman DeAndre Coleman, defensive tackle Ricky Havili-Heimuli, safety Craig Loston, kicker/punter  Kasey Redfern, guard Tyler Shatley, tight end D.J. Tialavea and linebacker Marcus Whitfield. No 2014 draft selections were waived.

Waiving Brewster leaves rookie Luke Bowanko and veteran Jacques McClendon at the center position, with rookie Brandon Linder – who worked at center early in training camp – expected to start the season at right guard. McClendon started at center in place of Brewster in the third preseason game against the Lions, but the team started Bowanko at center Thursday against Atlanta with McClendon moving to left guard in place of the injured Zane Beadles.

Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said late Thursday night the team would decide on a starter after reviewing the Atlanta game.

The team also announced it reached an injury settlement with defensive end David Carter.

Teams may begin signing practice squad players Sunday at noon.
