Jeez, great roster management from the Jags. Spend a year invested in a QB, watch the two QBs in front of him perform worse than they had the previous year, then cut him without getting any benefit from stashing him for a year.

Did anyone really expect him to be in the NFL long?  The kid was lucky to even get a shot and as usual, when his team needed him the most, he turned into a pick machine,...  Not surprised he got cut!

I'd rather see allen come here and be a grad student qb coach. I think he would excel at it.

So you would rather him stop pursuing his dream?

Would someone please explain the Practice Squad concept... nevermind, I Googled it and found out Practice Squad members take a significant cut in yearly salary.

Also, just to make another point, is it just me, or does anyone else see Jordan Rogers in the same light as Kliff Kingsbury? I can do without either of them... ;)

Significant is relative. If you're on a practice squad for 52 weeks of the year, you'd be making 374,400. Still making the equivalent of 180 dollars an hour.

That's a pretty nice junk of change.

Well, looks like with the Rams (if not them, would have been the Redskins, apparently) he'll be around the NFL at least a year longer.  BTW, despite his first half ints, did the Jaguars lose their game last week with BA as the starter (and only quarterback, and leading yardage gainer for either team in the game)?:
