The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Wednesday they have officially released veteran cornerback Shaquill Griffin. The release of Griffin clears $13,147,059 in salary cap space, however, the Jaguars reportedly made an attempt to trade Griffin before announcing his release Wednesday.
The 28-year-old Griffin spent his first four seasons in Seattle before joining the Jaguars during the 2021 offseason on a three-year, $40 million contract. A back injury limited Griffin to just five games during the 2022 season, where he struggled and allowed a 125.0 passer rating. After he was placed on injured reserve in October, Griffin was unable to return before the end of the season and was replaced in the lineup by a couple players before Darious Williams took on the role.
