The Jacksonville Jaguars today released DE James Roberson and

activated DE Chris White from the practice squad. To fill the

vacancy on the practice squad, the Jaguars signed DE Troy Bailey.

Roberson was signed October 13 when Eric Curry was placed on

injured reserve. He played October 17 vs. Cleveland and October

31 at Cincinnati and was inactive for the last four games. He made

four tackles and one sack in limited action. Roberson, 28, is a

three-year veteran out of Florida State who started 21 of 40 games

played for the Tennessee Titans from 1996 to '98.

White, 23, was selected as the second of two choices in the seventh

round and was the fourth defensive lineman drafted by the team in

April. The first player from the Southern University Jaguars to join

the Jaguars, the 6-3, 280-pound White started 27 of 37 games

played over three seasons, making 88 tackles. He was waived in the

final cuts on September 5 and re-signed to the practice squad the

next day. He wears jersey No. 74.

Bailey, 26, spent training camp with the Washington Redskins and

was on Kansas City's practice squad earlier this season. He was

originally signed as an undrafted rookie in 1996 by Detroit, and he

spent the 1997 training camp with Atlanta. Bailey, 6-4 and 290

pounds, played in the NFL Europe League in 1998 and '99.
