JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have cut tight end Kyler Reed and safety Chris Banjo, making room for receiver Cole McKenzie and place-kicker Adam Yates.
The Jaguars made the moves Thursday, the eve of training camp.
Jacksonville had been looking for a second place-kicker for camp and needed another receiver after placing Justin Blackmon (groin) and Taylor Price (foot) on the physically unable to perform list.
McKenzie, a 6-foot-1 rookie from Southern Oregon, originally signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie in April. Yates, an undrafted rookie from South Carolina, was invited to work out for Jacksonville during a rookie minicamp in May.
Without Reed, the Jaguars have five tight ends for the start of camp. Banjo became expendable after the team claimed Ray Polk off waivers from Seattle on Wednesday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived safety Chris Banjo as well as tight end Kyler Reed. Banjo who didn’t play in the NFL last season as well as Reed who is an undrafted rookie, will look to jump into another camp, but there are no guarantees that they will find interest.

It was a huge gain for the Jacksonville Jaguars, though.
