In the wake of a performance where Chad Henne was sacked 10 times and their offense managed a total of only 148 yards, the Jacksonville Jaguars
have released Cameron Bradfield
, a fourth-year veteran who started the first two games of this season for them at right tackle.
The news was first reported Tuesday by the Florida Times-Union
, which cited a league source.
Bradfield was primarily responsible for the four sacks recorded by Washington Commanders outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and was benched in favor of Sam Young during the fourth quarter of the Jaguars' 41-10 loss. With Austin Pasztor expected to practice Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his right hand a month ago during a preseason game, the Jaguars could have him back in the starting lineup in that spot for their home opener Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts in a matchup of 0-2 teams.
As additional insurance at tackle, the Jaguars announced they added rookie Cody Booth to their practice squad. Booth had been waived by them Aug. 29.
Bradfield, who turned 27 last Sunday, signed a two-year contract in March to remain with the Jaguars. He started the final 11 games of last season for them at left tackle after Eugene Monroe was traded to the Baltimore Ravens and Luke Joeckel saw his rookie season ended by a fractured right ankle.
He started 12 games in 2012 at right tackle and appeared in nine games as a rookie in 2011 after making the Jaguars' roster as an undrafted free agent.
