So far today the Jaguars have released Malik Jackson, Carlos Hyde and Tashaun Gipson.
There are no plans to release QB Blake Bortles today, per source. Jaguars likely need to wait to make sure they procure a free-agent QB next week before moving on from Bortles.

Jackson, 29, was given a six-year $85.5 million deal with $31.5 million guaranteed after the 2015 season with the Broncos.

Parnell, 32, has started at tackle for the Jaguars since the 2015 season.
Gipson, 28, has been starting for the Jaguars for three seasons now, after starting his career with the Browns. In 2018, he had 54 total tackles, seven passes defended and one interception.
