In another string of surprising roster moves today, the Jacksonville Jaguars have released long-time offensive guard, Vince Manuwai and defensive back Tyron Brackenridge

Vince Manuwai was drafted by the Jaguars in the 2003 NFL Draft and since then, he has become a large part of an offensive line that would dominate the line of scrimmage and allow for Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew to run for large amounts of yardage.

It probably spelled the beginning of the end when he injured his ACL and MCL at the beginning of the 2008 season. In the following seasons, he clearly wasn't the same player and the Jaguars drafted Will Rackley in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The fact that he came into camp overweight and out of shape, probably pushed the coaches over the edge. Terrance Knighton should take heed because this could be him in the next few years.

Tyron Brackenridge was originally drafted by the Chiefs in 2008, but he was picked up by the Jaguars at the beginning of the 2009 season. After making a bunch of plays on special teams in the 2009 preseason, he made the team. He started one game against the Bills, where he memorably gave up a 98-yard touchdown to Terrell Owens.

Last season, he spent time at safety. However, with the drafting of Chris Prosinski and Rod Isaac and the free agency pickup of Dawan Landry, T-Brack's services have been rendered obsolete.
