One of the worst NFL trades of the last five years looks even worse Friday morning.

The Jaguars cut former No. 8 overall pick Derrick Harvey, just three years after the Jaguars gave up four draft picks to move up to get him. (They dealt the No. 26 pick, two third-rounders, and a fourth-round pick.)

That trade doomed former Jaguars G.M. Shack Harris, and the organization has spent a while recovering from it. We guessed Harvey might get cut and the team clearly couldn’t find anyone willing to make a trade.

Guard Vince Manuwai also got cut, according to Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union.

The releases will help clear room for safety Dawan Landry, who is expected to sign Friday. We’ve seen that Landry was “close” to signing in Jacksonville for days now, so we’ll let you know when it actually happens.
