Jaguars waive Stankiewitch, sign former ‘Bama interior lineman
Last Friday’s performance under center wasn’t pretty in any way, shape or form and turned out to be a disappointment for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
At this point, the team has made it clear that they believe Mike Brewster can still be the guy to start the 2014 season. In the current depth chart, Brewster is penciled in as the start with 2014 sixth-round draft pick Luke Bowanko as the back-up.
Unfortunately, for the third-stringer Matt Stankiewitch, this is the end of his time with the Jaguars.

Taking Stankiewitch’s place on the roster former Crimson Tide offensive guard and center Antoine Caldwell who was a third-round selection in 2009 by the Houston Texans who he played for until 2012. In 2013, he spent mini-camp with the Buffalo Bills but didn’t make the final roster.
Just a few months ago, Caldwell attended the Jaguars rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis and, although he wasn’t offered a contract, he obviously did enough to earn one now.
I wouldn’t expect for Caldwell to play too much tomorrow night if at all, any snaps he may play should be taken with a grain of salt as he will have only been with the team for a day. If there’s anyone to keep an eye on tomorrow night at center, it’s Brewster and Bowanko.
