The Jaguars have released veteran linebacker Myles Jack‚ saving $8.35 million. The move comes days after the team agreed to terms with six free agents‚ including Foye Oluokun‚ who led the NFL in tackles last season. In three of his four seasons‚ Myles had at least 107 tackles. He was drafted by the Jaguars with the No. 36 overall pick in 2016. The Jaguars are trying to save cap space‚ so they're releasing the second-round pick from the 2016 NFL Draft. This free-agent move frees up $8.35 million‚ leaving the Jaguars with $4.8 million in dead money. The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to sign Foyesade Oluokun and Christian Kirk in free agency‚ but it is not yet clear whether they'll spend that much to add a linebacker in free agency. Despite being a second-round pick in 2016‚ Myles Jack has yet to make a single pro bowl appearance.
