JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars made their first round of final roster cuts Monday, releasing two veterans in safety Rudy Ford and receiver Laquon Treadwell.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Laviska Shenault is scheduled to make his preseason debut against Pittsburgh on Saturday night. It might also serve as an audition for the rest of league.
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (3-14)
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: WR DJ Chark, G Andrew Norwell, G A.J. Cann, DL Taven Bryan, DE Jihad Ward, CB Tre Herndon, LB Damien Wilson, WR Laquon Treadwell, TE James O’Shaughnessy, OL Will Richardson, CB Nevin Lawson, DE Adam Gotsis, WR Tavon Austin, DE Lerentee McCray, TE Jacob Hollister, WR Jaydon Mickens, P JK Scott.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla, (AP) — DJ Chark’s contract season is off to a shaky start.
The Jacksonville Jaguars receiver had surgery to repair a broken finger on his right hand, coach Urban Meyer said Sunday, and will miss the remainder of training camp and the preseason.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars signed receiver Laquon Treadwell on Friday, adding the 2016 first-round draft pick following a minicamp tryout.
Treadwell was the 23rd overall pick that year by Minnesota, but the former Mississippi standout did little in four years with the Vikings.
Kirk Cousins has taken a vocal lead in building a rapport with receiver Laquon Treadwell, who was targeted four times in Week 1 and is expected to be involved in Sunday’s game in Green Bay.
After Treadwell was targeted an average of just twice per game last season, the third-year receiver said his bond with Cousins is growing through an open line of communication.
Kirk Cousins arrived in Minnesota knowing two things about his receiver corps: Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are stars in the making, if not already, and the rest of the depth chart consists of wide-open lanes for unproven targets.
INDIANAPOLIS — After 21 catches in his two NFL seasons, the heat is on Vikings receiver Laquon Treadwell to live up to his first-round draft selection.
Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, General Manager Rick Spielman said he’s hoping to see Treadwell make a “jump” next season.
PHERSY: Hey Feldy, it feels way too early to be talking about football. While I love all things pigskin, I could use a few months off before we jump into the high school season and our annual Pigskin Preview.
Who will have more at stake this fall for the Minnesota Vikings — head coach Mike Zimmer or GM Rick Spielman?
That's a tough call, so let's make it simple. If things go south for the Purple, both will likely be elsewhere at this time next year.
