Bouman, Woods Among Jaguars Cuts

The Jaguars will begin the 2008 season with only two quarterbacks on the roster.

Todd Bouman was one of 19 players let go by the Jaguars as Jack Del Rio cut his roster down to the league mandated 53-man squad.

Bouman outplayed backup quarterback Cleo Lemon through most of the preseason, but it wasn’t enough to keep him on the team.

Among other casualties, wide receivers D’Juan Woods and Ryan Hoag. Woods has practice squad elligibility, Hoag does not. That means that the Troy Williamson will be on the opening day roster. Williamson may have saved his spot with a 49 yard touchdown catch in the final pre-season game against Washington. Ironically, that pass was thrown by Bouman and it wasn’t enough to keep him on the roster.

Also let go was defensive end Mkristo Bruce, who tallied 2 1/2 sacks in the pre-season opener.

The Jaguars also placed special teams star Chad Nkand and defensive end Jeremy Mincey on the Physically Unable to Perform List, meaning that they cannot return to the active roster until week six of the regular season. Defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis, who injured his knee in the pre-season finale against Washington, was placed on Injured Reserve.

Among the veterans let go: linebacker Tony Gilbert, Jacksonville native and former Gator runningback Ciatrick Fason, defensive tackle Jesse Mahelona, and defensive ends Kenny Pettway and Bo Schobel.

Other leg go: fifth-round draft pick cornerback Trae Williams, tight ends Chris Brown and Charles Davis, offensive linemen Andrew Carnahan, Pete McMahon and Drew Miller. Defensive backs Isaiah Gardner, Michael Grant, Rashod Moulton and linebacker Lamar Myles.

Four of the five Jaguars’ draft picks made the team: Derrick Harvey (1st round), Quentin Groves (2nd), Thomas Williams (5th), Chauncey Washington (7th) as well as undrafted rookie return man Brian Witherspoon.

The Jaguars can begin signing up to eight players to the practice squad as of noon on Sunday.
