The Jacksonville Jaguars made a significant roster cut this Monday afternoon ahead of Tuesday's deadline. The AFC South franchise has reportedly cut third-year NFL quarterback Jake Luton. 

Luton, a former sixth-round pick out of Oregon State, had been battling for the team's backup quarterback role behind Trevor Lawrence. It appears that job has been won by C.J. Beathard. 

Luton made three starts his rookie season and completed 54.5 percent of his throws for 624 yards and two touchdowns with six picks. Most recently, the former Oregon State star struggled in a preseason exhibition against Cleveland, throwing for just 92 yards with one pick on 21 pass attempts. 

JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Jaguars have made the following roster moves, the team announced today.

Trevor Lawrence will get the start under center for the Jaguars when the 2022 season commences. C.J. Beathard projects to be his backup. 

The Jaguars begin the 2022 season on Sept. 11 against the Washington Commanders.
