JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars have released a member of the once-lauded 2015 free agency haul.
David Canter, agent for defensive end Jared Odrick, announced his release on Monday.
Odrick signed a five-year, $42.5 million deal during the 2015 offseason. He was given a contract that was essentially for two seasons with three offseason team options built into the deal.
Odrick would have been guaranteed $5.5 million of his $6.5 million base salary had he been on the roster past March 13. His release frees up $8.5 million in cap space, as he was also due a $2 million bonus on March 13.
The defensive lineman battled multiple injuries last season and only appeared in six games for the Jaguars. In 2015, Odrick led the team with 5.5 sacks.
The 29-year-old would have been the third-highest paid player on the team this season.
