The Jacksonville Jaguars could lose a cornerback
The Jacksonville Jaguars are trying to build a roster to take the next step in the playoffs. The Jaguars made it to the Divisional Round, where they came up short against the eventual Super Bowl-winning champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. However, the Jaguars could lose a starting cornerback from the roster.
According to Jeremy Fowler with ESPN, the team is expected to release or trade cornerback Shaquill Griffin shortly. Removing Griffin would save the Jaguars over $13 million in cap space.

Still just 27 and a former Pro Bowler, Griffin figures to be a key player in the cornerback market.

Griffin made the Pro Bowl in 2019. But he didn’t have his best season in 2022. According to Pro Football Focus, Griffin received his second-lowest overall seasonal grade (61.8) in 2022. He hasn’t recorded an interception since the 2020 season.
The Jaguars could use the freed-up cap space to help with other positions. According to Over The Cap, the team has about $16 million in cap space for next season.
