In their quest to get down to 80 players, the Jaguars have released CB William James and TE Charles Davis. The Jags will need to cut three more players in the next couple of weeks to get down to the 80 player training camp roster limit.

James, a former starter for the New York Giants, played sparingly during his tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars and didn't live up to the expectations that coaches envisioned when they signed him.  James filled in for a limited basis when Jags' star Rashean Mathis went down with an injury and was constantly burned down field by opposing wide receivers. 

Davis, a former 5th round draft pick from Purdue from the Steelers, never saw any game action and was on the Jaguars' practice squad after being cut last preseason.
