The deadline for teams to cut their roster down to 53 active players is tomorrow, which means we'll see a handful of notable names hit the open market. Players that were on the bubble will learn their fate within the next day.

One notable player fighting to make a 53-man roster is Terrelle Pryor, who spent the past few months with the Jaguars.

Pryor bounced around the AFC East in 2018, spending time with the Bills and Jets. Unfortunately for the former Ohio State quarterback, he'll have to look for yet another home.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars have released Pryor.

Jacksonville also cut former Alabama cornerback Savion Smith.

This is a tough break for Pryor as his chances of being on a main roster for Week 1 are now looking pretty slim.

Pryor's best season came in 2016, when he finished with 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. Many analysts around the league thought he finally proved he can play wide receiver in the NFL.

Since his breakout season in Cleveland, it's been a rough stretch for Pryor. He signed a one-year contract worth $8 million with the Redskins in 2017, but his production dropped dramatically.

Considering how versatile and athletic Pryor is on the field, it wouldn't be surprising if another team quickly gave him another shot.
