The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Sunday that veteran defensive tackle Roy Miller was being released, a continuation of the team’s youth movement.

Miller had been a full-time starter for the Jags since being brought over in 2013 as a free agent out of Tampa Bay. He started 49 games in his tenure with the club, racking up 105 total tackles and five sacks. Unfortunately, Miller suffered an Achilles injury last year and ended up on IR to close out the season.

The Jaguars are freeing up roughly $3.5 million in cap space by releasing the veteran defensive tackle.

Over the course of his career, Miller has tallied 246 total tackles and eight sacks. He’s likely to land on another roster heading into the offseason as teams look to shore up their depth.
