Most football fans probably won't recognize these names, but Jaguars blog Big Cat Country thinks the biggest surprise is long snapper Jeremy Cain. Cain has been with the team since 2009, but the Jaguars signed two long snappers in the offseason, making the 33-year-old expendable. He was set to make $1 million in 2013.

Here's the complete list of cut players, via BCC: Cain, Luke Ingram, Ken Parrish, Mark Asper, Lionel Smith, Maalik Bomar, Jeremiah Green, J.D. Griggs, Paul Hazel, Jamal Miles, Ray Polk and Roderick Tomlin. The team also placed Jeremy Harris on injured reserve, ending his rookie season before it started.

The Jaguars now have about a week and one more preseason game to finalize their 53-man roster for the regular season.
