According to a person familiar with the process, the Jacksonville Jaguars have declined to exercise a fifth-year option on former first-round draft pick Luke Joeckel. Joeckel signed a four-year, fully guaranteed deal worth about $21 million after Jacksonville made him the second overall pick in 2013. The contract included a team option for the 2017 season, in which Joeckel would have made close to $12 million.
Chris Culliver's time with the Washington Redskins lasted all of six games. Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan told the injured cornerback on Monday that he was being released after the team signed Josh Norman as a free agent and took Kendall Fuller in the third round of the NFL draft. Culliver signed a four-year deal as a free agent a year ago, but he tore the ACL and MCL ligaments in his right knee during practice on Thanksgiving Day.

Gary Shipman was at his desk at noon Saturday, thumbing through depth charts and occasionally looking across the room at the wall-mounted TV trumpeting the start of the NFL draft's final day. Shipman, who represents four college football players eligible to play in the NFL this season, didn't expect to hear any of their names called, even when teams are willing to take chances in the sixth or seventh round. Shipman and his staff were busily studying NFL rosters, trying to find the right fit for their players, keeping tabs on how franchises are using picks and trying to sell teams on his list of undrafted free agents well before the 253rd and final selection was made in Chicago.
