Jaguars cut Zane Beadles, Chris Clemons

The Jacksonville Jaguars cut offensive guard Zane Beadles and defensive end Chris Clemons.
Beadles was to cost $5.5 million against the salary cap.
Clemons had a $4 million salary-cap figure.
Jacksonville signed Beadles to a five-year, $30 million deal back in 2014. Clemons came to Florida on a four-year deal worth $17.5 million."The nature of free agency is -- you're going to overpay," general manager Dave Caldwell said at the scouting combine. "You want a player? You're going to have to overpay to get him, and that's just the nature of the beast. There's a talent pool, and this year there's a large pool of money, especially in North Florida."
