The Jacksonville Jaguars have released defensive tackle Carl Davis, per the league's transaction wire (via Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk).

The Jaguars have ushered in some significant turnover to their roster in recent years. Of course, the bulk of their changes have come on the defensive side of the ball.

Davis came into the league as a third round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. He enjoyed brief stints with the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts until his release during the 2019 campaign. The Jaguars subsequently picked him up in an effort to shore up some depth up front.

The offseason got off to a rocky start for Davis after the league announced that he will be suspended the first four games of the 2020 season for violating the the performance-enhancing substance policy. Although this did not stop the Jaguars from re-signing him back in April, it appears they have since opted to part ways once again.

Jacksonville has put an emphasis on filling the notable voids on defense heading into the 2020 NFL season. They were able to make a splash in free agency by securing linebacker Joe Schobert and cornerback Darqueze Dennard for the long haul.

The Jaguars also made sure to fortify their personnel along the defensive line with the addition of Rodney Gunter. They followed it up by using two of their first four picks in the 2020 NFL Draft to take edge rusher K'Lavon Chaisson and defensive tackle Davon Hamilton. Regardless, this group will have some rather big shoes to fill with the departure of Calais Campbell and Marcell Dareus this offseason.
