JACKSONVILLE - The Jaguars reduced their roster to 80 players Saturday morning.
The Jaguars waived rookie running back Tavien Feaster, first-year offensive lineman Tyler Gauthier, rookie offensive lineman Steven Nielsen and rookie kicker Brandon Wright. They also released third-year safety Doug Middleton.
The team on Saturday also placed sixth-year defensive tackle Rodney Gunter on the active/non-football illness list. Including tight end James O'Shaughnessy (knee), who is on the team's active/physically unable to perform list, the Jaguars now have 80 players on their active list.
The Jaguars, who may carry 80 players on their active list until the final roster reduction to 53 players on September 5, are now eligible to have all 80 players at the facility – including on the practice field – simultaneously throughout training camp.
