The Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to part ways with one of their prized utility players in Kassim Osgood and a young player in Kevin Haslam. Osgood not only functioned as a special teamer, but as a receiver (Mostly functioning as a blocker). However, the new kickoff rules basically made hisrole obsolete, especially when you are set to earn $3 million this year. His biggest downfall was the fact that he never turned into a decent receiver, only managing 11 catches and 1 TD in 2 years. Kevin Haslam seemed to be a pretty good young player who was sidelined all year with a knee injury sustained during the team scrimmage.
What do these moves mean? For one, it means that the Jaguars are probably planning to hit the ground running when it comes to receivers in free agency and the draft. Cutting Osgood releases a roster spot for the receivers, which means that we could possibly suspect that Jaguars might be signing a receiver today. As for Haslam, this means that Cameron Bradfield has probably impressed the coaches, making him the primary backup for Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton.Tags: Cameron Bradfield, Eben Britton, Eugene Monroe, Football, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Jaguars, Jaguars, Kassim Osgood, Kevin Haslam, NFL
