The cut a quarterback.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Sunday that the Jags cut second-year signal-caller .
The move comes after Jacksonville added five players from the waiver wire, including tight end from New England.
Cutting Allen is slightly surprising given the Jags quarterback quandary. There was some scuttle this offseason that Allen could get a shot at the starting gig if and bomb. Allen showed flashes in the preseason, including a 43-yard touchdown strike to receiver . His three-interception performance in the preseason finale, however, displayed the limitations of the second-year quarterback.
As Garafolo notes, the Jags waiting a day to cut Allen could be a maneuver to sneak him onto the practice squad. The 24-year-old must pass through waivers first.
