The Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to clear some more roster room by cutting ties with 6 players: RB Deji Karim, LB JoJo Dickson, DE Jammie Kirlew, LB Stephen Franklin, K Sam Swank, and DB Trumaine McBride. Many of these players were either training camp holdovers or late-season pickups. However, what you may notice is 2010 6th round draft pick, RB Deji Karim. He had a disapointing 2011 season, averaging 2.1 yards per carry and his kick returns weren't much to look at either.This move cements Rashad Jennings' role as Maurice Jones-Drew's primary backup. Plus, Mike Thomas and Cecil Shorts will probably be competing for the primary kick return job.
