by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Skuta: Released by Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skuta was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The drop-off in performance was enough for the Jaguars to sever ties with the once-starting outside linebacker, who was slated to make $12.3 million over the next three seasons.
