JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — In another of several roster moves leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars are reported releasing one of the team’s longtime wide receivers.
Marqise Lee, who was drafted by the Jaguars in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, is now a free agent, Ian Rapoport, National Insider for the NFL Network first reported.
The Jaguars confirmed the roster move in a tweet of its own:
During his time with the Jaguars, Lee has suffered several injuries, most recently a knee injury in the 2019 season, which led to him being placed on injured reserve.
This isn’t the first high-profile offseason move by the Jaguars this season: In March, the team traded quarterback Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears and defensive end Calais Campbell -- who won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for the 2019 season -- was traded to the Baltimore Ravens.
