Per multiple reports, the Jaguars are releasing safety Dawan Landry today. The team confirmed the move at 9:50 a.m. Friday. Signed in August 2011 after the lockout, Landry played and started in every game the last two years, posting seasons of 115 and 176 tackles, respectively. According to contract figures, Landry will count as $3.9 million of “dead money” on this year’s salary cap. But the Jaguars have created $1.45 million of cap space with the move -- Landry's number was $5.35 million for 2013. Landry, 30, played five years for Baltimore before coming to the Jaguars. Late last year, Landry missed some key tackles and a team source said the coaching staff was disappointed and concerned with his lack of range. Landry’s release would leave Dwight Lowery and Chris Prosinski as the in-house safeties. Lowery missed seven games last year and Prosinski -- a frequent whipping guy for Jaguars fans -- is under contract but readily admitted he struggled at times tackling. Translation: Safety is another position for the Jaguars to address.
