JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' roster changes continued Tuesday.
This time, the move was about a departure – with the franchise parting ways with one its longest-tenured players.
Linebacker Myles Jack, a starter for the past six seasons who served as a Jaguars team captain last season, has been released. The team announced the move Tuesday afternoon.
"Myles has made a positive contribution on and off the field in Jacksonville, providing leadership in our locker room as a captain and making a significant impact on the First Coast community," General Manager Trent Baalke said in a statement Tuesday. "His recognition as the team's 2021 Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee is indicative of his commitment to inspiring positive change in those around him. We appreciate all he has done for our organization and wish him the best."
Jack, a second-round selection by the Jaguars in the 2016 NFL Draft, started 82 of 88 games played in six seasons and started every game he played after his rookie season. He led the team with 108 tackles this past season, registering three tackles for loss and two pressures.
Jack in six seasons registered 6.5 sacks, 511 tackles, three interceptions and four fumble recoveries.
