Jaguars finalize 53-man roster for start of 2018 season

WR Rashad Greene survives final cut

McCardell on if Rasahd Greene has some work to do in order to make the team: “I told him this: ‘You all start at the same starting line and you have to go out and show everybody that you can help this team.’ Each year is a new year. This was a fresh start for him. He gets out in front of everybody and makes plays when we are asking him to make plays. He is doing it, and I think the little experience he had playing early really helps him right now. I think he has become a leader just because he has been here for a while.”
