With Week 1 of the NFL regular season on the horizon, teams are beginning to cut down their rosters to 53 players, and on Friday morning, three Jacksonville Jaguars players fell victim to the shakeup.
Jones, who played his collegiate football at UCLA, was originally selected by the Green Bay Packers in the first round (26th pick overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft, but never lived up to expectations.
He played his first four seasons with the Packers, logging just nine sacks over that span.
The 29-year-old then made his way to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017, but played only three games there before being released and signed by the Dallas Cowboys, where he spent the remainder of 2017 and all of 2018. However, he was placed on the injured reserve list late last September.
Jacksonville signed Jones in early June.
Smith is an undrafted cornerback out of Alabama and logged 60 tackles, three interceptions, a forced fumble and five passes defended during his final season with the Crimson Tide in 2018.
Pryor is certainly the biggest name on this list, as he entered the NFL as a quarterback out of Ohio State in 2011, but after an unsuccessful run under center in the NFL, he transitioned to wide receiver with the Cleveland Browns in 2016 and had a terrific year, hauling in 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns.
He has been unable to come close to replicating that same level of success since.
