The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to make offseason moves Friday with the release of Chris Ivory. The team on Friday released the veteran running back after two up-and-down seasons in Jacksonville, saving the team $3.6 million in salary-cap room.
The Jaguars also parted ways with defensive back Jarrod Harper, running back I’Tavius Mathers and wideout Larry Pinkard.
The release of Ivory shouldn’t come as a shock. The keys to the backfield were handed off to Leonard Fournette which paid off tremendously for the team. Ivory was also a healthy scratch a handful of times during the season with T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant finding their stride late in the season.
In two seasons in Jacksonville Ivory never quite lived up to expectations. In 2 seasons he failed to achieve more than 500 rushing yards or more than four touchdowns.
At 29, Ivory is just three seasons removed from a 1,000-yard campaign with the Jets. His career isn’t over and should be able to land a supporting role somewhere else.
For the Jags saving the 3.6 million gives them a little extra money to use in several potential ways as the offseason rolls forward.
