JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -The Jacksonville Jaguars cut 11 players from their roster Monday, including veteran tight end Jermaine Wiggins and safety Nick Sorensen.
Linebacker Jorge Cordova, wide receiver Jimmy Farris and fullback Derrick Wimbush were also released.
Wiggins signed as a free agent from Minnesota last spring to help fill a void at tight end but became expandable with the return of George Wrighster from a torn rotator cuff. Wiggins had one catch for 1 yard in three preseason games.
Wimbush led the Jaguars in kickoff returns (39 returns for 955 yards) in 2005. He was used as a fullback much of the 2006 season, filling in for Greg Jones who missed the season with an injury. The Jaguars are at the required 75-man roster.
