JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived six players, including running back Deji Karim.
Also waived were linebacker JoJo Dickson, linebacker Stephen Franklin, linebacker Jammie Kirlew, defensive back Trumaine McBride and place-kicker Sam Swank.
The Jaguars parted ways with those players to make room undrafted rookies signed following the NFL draft.
Karim was the most notable name of the bunch. A sixth-round draft pick from Southern Illinois in 2010, Karim ran 63 times for 130 yards last season. He averaged just 2.1 yards a carry while backing up Maurice Jones-Drew. He also averaged 24.1 yards on 27 kickoff returns.
With top backup Rashad Jennings returning from a knee injury and fellow backs Montell Owens, DuJuan Harris and Richard Murphy also in the mix, Jacksonville had little need for Karim next season.
