JACKSONVILLE – As the league year opened, the Jaguars' roster continued to change.
Sen'Derrick Marks, a starting defensive tackle and front-line player for the Jaguars in 2013 and 2014, has been released by the Jaguars. The team announced the move Thursday at 4 p.m.
Marks, originally a second-round selection by the Tennessee Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft, signed with the Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent in 2013. That was General Manager David Caldwell's first offseason with the Jaguars, and Marks was one of the team's most successful free-agent signings that offseason.
Marks registered 16 sacks in four seasons with the Jaguars, including a career-high 8.5 in 2014. He sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the 2014 regular-season finale.
Marks started just two games while playing four in 2015, missing the first five games while recovering from the torn ACL and missing the final seven with a torn triceps. He played in all 16 games this past season, starting one and registering 3.5 sacks.
The NFL's 2017 league year began at 4 p.m. That's when players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents can begin signing with other teams.
