Jaguars release WR Zay Jones, K Joey Slye

Zay Jones

The Jacksonville Jaguars released veteran wide receiver Zay Jones and kicker Joey Slye on Tuesday.

Per Spotrac, the moves freed up $5.22 million of cap space for the Jaguars in 2024.

Jones’ job with Jacksonville appeared to be in jeopardy after the team signed Gabe Davis in free agency and selected fellow wide receiver Brian Thomas Jr. in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Jones, 29, had 34 catches for 321 yards and two touchdowns in nine games (seven starts) last season.

He totaled 287 receptions for 3,028 yards and 18 touchdowns in 104 career games (67 starts) with the Buffalo Bills, Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders and Jaguars.

Slye’s time in Jacksonville lasted all of approximately six weeks. The then-free agent signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars on March 18.

Jacksonville has Riley Patterson on the roster. The team also selected fellow kicker Cam Little in the sixth round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Slye, 28, converted 19 of 24 field goals and 32 of 35 extra points in 17 games for the Washington Commanders last season.

He has made 82.3 percent of his field goals and just 88.5 percent of his PATs across five seasons with four teams.
