Jacksonville Jaguars Release Talented Cornerback

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released cornerback Shaquill Griffin.

Griffin had played for the Jaguars for two seasons, starting 19 games but failing to record any interceptions during that time.

With this move, the Jaguars will save $13.1 million in salary cap space, although they still need to make further adjustments to get under the cap by next week.
Griffin is expected to generate interest from other teams in free agency, as he was a Pro Bowler in 2019 and is considered to be one of the top cornerbacks available.

Over his six-year career, the 27-year-old has recorded 327 total tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, six interceptions and 59 passes defended over 76 games played, split between the Seattle Seahawks and the Jaguars.
He is a former third-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Griffin's release means that the Jaguars will need to find a replacement in the secondary, as they continue to make tough decisions to manage their cap space for the upcoming season. Photo Credit: Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports
