Jaguars waive linebacker Clint Session
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived Clint Session, parting ways with the veteran linebacker who has missed significant time following three concussions.
The team also waived tight end Maurice Stovall and signed fullback Will Ta’ofu’ou to the practice squad.
Session sustained three concussions last season and had been on the physically unable to perform list. He said in July it was “probably too late” to avoid long-term effects associated with head trauma.
Session had his first concussion in the preseason and two more against Cleveland on Nov. 20. He stayed in the game after the first one against the Browns and didn’t tell team doctors. He was placed on injured reserve two days later.
He signed a five-year contract in July 2011 worth $30 million. The deal included $11.5 million guaranteed.
