JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have released special teams ace Montell Owens after seven seasons.

The Jaguars want to get younger, so the move was hardly a surprise.

Owens, a two-time Pro Bowler, is the latest veteran to leave the rebuilding Jaguars, joining a list that includes cornerback Rashean Mathis, linebacker Daryl Smith and fullback Greg Jones.

The team filled one of two open roster spots by signing first-year center Dan Gerberry, who tried out during a voluntary veteran minicamp last month.

Owens made the team as an undrafted rookie in 2006. He played in 104 games and owns the franchise record for special teams tackles (118). His career totals also include 56 carries for 292 yards and three touchdowns as well as 12 catches for 132 yards.
