Greene re-signed with the Jaguars on Monday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. A roster spot opened up for Greene following offensive lineman Cam Robinson's (torn ACL) placement on injured reserve. It remains unlikely that Greene will have a role with the offense, but there's room for his contributions on special teams.
Greene was let go by the Jaguars on Saturday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Greene was released to make room for running back Brandon Wilds. A backup receiver throughout his NFL career, Greene was a healthy scratch in Week 1 and his absence shouldn't impact the offense greatly against New England on Sunday.
Greene is a coach's decision inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Greene appears to be near the end of the depth chart at wide receiver in Jacksonville. With the team facing only a few injuries ahead of Week 1, he draws the short straw and won't see the field until Week 2 at the earliest.
Greene had a 56-yard punt return late in the fourth quarter to set up the Jaguars game-winning touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings. Greene again provided little offensive production -- catching one of three targets for four yards on 30 snaps -- but delivered a clutch punt return with just over two minutes left in the game, coming up only four yards short of a touchdown. Special teams will continue to be the area where the 25-year-old can earn himself a roster spot, and Saturday's timely effort is a good way to leave an impression.
Greene led all Jaguars receivers with 34 offensive snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints, catching two passes for 13 yards and returning two kickoffs for 42 yards. Greene also muffed his lone punt return, but thankfully was able to cover the ball. The 25-year-old's offensive production is a bit disappointing given his snap count, but Jaguars' quarterbacks spread the ball pretty evenly among the team's pass catchers. Special teams -- and the return game specifically -- is Greene's likeliest avenue to a spot on the 53-man roster, which puts him in direct competition with Jaydon Mickens for reps. Both players are looking to convince the Jaguars to keep a sixth wide receiver on the roster.
