Jaguars waive DE Austen Lane, CB Trey Wilson

Jacksonville, FL-- The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived defensive end Austen Lane after three seasons and undrafted rookie cornerback Trey Wilson.
The team made the moves before its final practice of the offseason.
Lane, a fifth-round draft pick from Murray State in 2010, played in 28 games with 16 starts. He had 103 tackles and three sacks. He became expendable with the emergence of second-year player Andre Branch and the move of defensive tackle Tyson Alualu to end.
Wilson, an undrafted rookie from Vanderbilt, signed with the team in May.
The Jaguars now have two open roster spots and could use them to sign guys who tried out during a three-day minicamp. The tryout players are punter Ken Parrish, cornerback Lionel Smith, tight end Lance Kearse and defensive end Tim Crowder.

On Thursday, Lane had this to say about the decision on his Twitter page:

"I just wanted to thank all the fans for the love and support. You guys are truly some of the best fans in the NFL, and the Jaguars are blessed to have you! It's been an awesome three and a half years, and I'm honored to have called this city my home. I want to wish my coaches and teammates the best of luck (except if they're playing a team that I'm on) and also want to thank the entire staff of the Jaguars organization. Wherever this road takes me, please know I will never stop having a smile on my face. Everyone goes through tough challenges, but it's how you respond to them that matters. Happiness and frustration are choices, and at the end of the day, I will always choose happiness. I'll keep you guys and this city in my heart for the rest of my life. Thanks for the memories!!!"
