|Final Roster Cuts|
|WR Danny Amendola||Speedy receiver/returner flashed at times, could land with another team.|
|RB Lorenzo Booker||Good speed and hands, but Eldra Buckley was more versatile.|
|TE Eugene Bright||Converted defensive end didn't develop enough as a receiver.|
|LB Tank Daniels||Former rookie free agent and good special teams player.|
|FB Kyle Eckel||Addition of Leonard Weaver made Eckel's road much tougher.|
|G Paul Fanaika||Road-grader stuck behind talented veteran backups.|
|DE Josh Gaines||Made a move to DT to increase his versatility.|
|LB Curtis Gatewood||Camp body late in preseason, but never played in game.|
|G Mike Gibson||2008 draft pick made great strides after spending year on IR.|
|CB Jack Ikegwuonu||Very promising prospect loses out on 5th CB spot.|
|DT Dan Klecko||Earned lots of respect for his move from DT to FB in 2008.|
|S Reshard Langford||Made game-winning tackle in Jaguars preseason game.|
|FB Marcus Mailei||Rallied late in preseason, scored TD in third preseason game.|
|TE Rob Myers||Training camp addition who showed tremendous upside in receiving game.|
|C Dallas Reynolds||Unable to beat Mike McGlynn for No. 2 center spot.|
|DE Bryan Smith||Emergence of Jason Babin made the 2008 third-rounder odd man out.|
|TE Matt Schobel||Team opted to only go two-deep at TE position.|
|LB Matt Wilhelm||Late addition wasn't able to push for middle linebacker spot.|
|CB Trae Williams||Flashed at times in camp, but simply caught in numbers crunch.|
|DT Willie Williams||Had fumble recovery vs. Jets, but not enough to earn reserve DT spot.|
