The Jacksonville Jaguars today released six players including veteran defensive end Reggie Hayward and first-year offensive lineman Cameron Stephenson. Also waived were four undrafted rookies – punter Robert Malone, cornerback Chris Hawkins, wide receiver Chris McGaha and fullback Ben Stallings.
Hayward played in 45 games in five seasons for the Jaguars since joining the club in 2005 as an unrestricted free agent from the Denver Broncos. He has recorded 39.5 career sacks in nine seasons, including 17.5 with the Jaguars, and has started in 59 of his 92 career games played. Hayward broke his leg in the 2009 season opener, and missed the remainder of the season.
Stephenson spent the 2009 season on the Jaguars practice squad, and has also spent time with New Orleans, Philadelphia, Green Bay and Pittsburgh.
Today's moves give the Jaguars an 80-man roster, which is the limit for training camp. The Jaguars are scheduled to report to training camp on Thursday, July 29 with the first practice scheduled on Friday, July 30.
