The Jacksonville Jaguars have reshaped their 90-man roster after this weekend's mini camp by releasing and signing a bunch of veteran and rookie players.

Released: WR Jarett Dillard, QB Dan LeFevour, S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, WR Nelson Rosario, WR Jarrett Boykin, DE Frank Trotter

Signed: QB Jordan Palmer, FB Naufahu Tahi, DT Odrick Ray, WR Mike Brown, WR Chris Forcier, LB Donovan Richard, DB Jeremiah Brown.

The most significant name that has been released is WR Jarett Dillard, who was a 2009 5th round draft pick for the Jaguars. He was placed on IR during his first two years and only managed to snag 35 career receptions for 398 yards and a single touchdown. The rest of the names are late season depth pickups or rookie undrafted free agents.

The most notable pickup is QB Jordan Palmer, who will replace Dan Lefevour on the roster as the third QB. He has prior experience in Bob Brakowskl's offensive system from his time in Cincinnati.  The most interesting additions are the two wide receivers, Mike Brown from Liberty and Chris Forcier from Furman. Both are extremely athletic quarterbacks that are making the transition to wide receiver.  Either the Jaguars are very interested in trying out the wildcat or they see one of them making a serious push in training camp.To be quite honest, we shouldn't be surprised if it is a little bit of both.
