Jaguars Waive Starting WR Hill, Sign Harris

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived starting receiver Jason Hill, taking a step toward preparing for next year.

Hill had a disappointing season, catching 25 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns, and dropped several balls. Since the Jaguars (3-8) plan to revamp their receiving corps in the offseason, waiving Hill forces Jarett Dillard, Chastin West, Cecil Shorts and Brian Robiskie onto the field more for evaluation.

The team also signed running back DuJuan Harris to the active roster from the practice squad, a move that could mean less playing time for Deji Karim.

Jacksonville also signed free agent cornerback Morgan Trent and placed safety Courtney Greene on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. The Jaguars have a league-high 18 players on injured reserve.

Jacksonville hosts San Diego on Monday night.
