Nix was released by the Jaguars on Monday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Nix was signed to Jacksonville's practice squad last October but didn't make an appearance for his hometown Jaguars last season. A third-round pick in 2014, the Notre Dame product has been on four teams already and will aim to land with a fifth ahead of training camp.
Nix, a former Notre Dame standout and third-round pick by the Texans in 2014, has already bounced around between four organizations in his brief career, but has just four career games (all with the Giants in 2015) on his ledger. He was a member of the Jaguars' practice squad from Oct. 25 onward, but the team never added him on to the 53-man roster. Nix is set to attend training camp with the Jaguars, but he'll likely face an uphill battle in making the club in 2017.
Nix was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Nix hoped to add some depth to the defensive line. He was competing with Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley for a backup role at defensive tackle. The Notre Dame product recorded four tackles in as many preseason games with the team.
