Jaguars Release DT John Henderson

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran defensive tackle John Henderson.

Henderson (6-7, 335) has started 120 of his 124 games during his 8-year NFL career, totaling 429 tackles, 29 quarterback sacks, 38 passes defensed and 8 forced fumbles.

The ninth overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft out of Tennessee, Henderson became expendable after the Jaguars used their first two picks in the 2010 NFL Draft on defensive tackles, including the 10th overall pick on Tyson Alualu from Cal.

Henderson had been signed through the 2011 season, with base salaries of $5M in 2010 and $5.75M in 2011.

The Jaguars also rescinded the restricted free agent tender on linebacker Clint Ingram, making him an unrestricted free agent.

A third-round pick (80th overall) out of Oklahoma in 2006, Ingram (6-2, 240) totaled 194 tackles, 5.5 quarterback sacks and a pair of interceptions over his four seasons in Jacksonville. Ingram had started 46 of his 56 games, and was tendered at the "Original Round" level.
