Barry Church: Exiled from Jags
Church was waived by the Jaguars on Friday.
Church had started 27 consecutive games for Jacksonville prior to being a healthy inactive Week 13 against the Colts, with rookie Ronnie Harrison taking over as the starter at strong safety. The Jaguars were more than willing to move on from the veteran safety in order to avoid the $6.25 million cap hit the he'd carry in 2019, and opted to start cleaning house before the end of the season. Church seems unlikely to be claimed off waivers due to the money remaining on his contract, but can sign with any team once he clears waivers.... See More ... See Less

Jaguars' Barry Church: Arrested in London
Church and teammates Ronnie Harrison, D.J. Hayden (toe) and Jarrod Wilson were arrested early Saturday morning in London, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
