Former Georgia WR cut by New York Jets

With the deadline for NFL teams to trim their rosters to 53 players coming on Tuesday at 4 p.m., tough decisions are being made by franchises across the league.

Former Georgia wide receiver Lawrence Cager learned that the hard way on Monday when he was cut by the New York Jets.

He was signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent in May 2020 and was a member of their practice squad after being waived by the team. Cager signing to the Jets’ practice squad once again could be a likely a destination for the former Bulldog.

Cager played one season for the Bulldogs after transferring from Miami. Cager was plagued with injuries throughout his collegiate career. He received medical redshirt after a season-ending injury before fall camp in 2016 and suffered multiple ankle injuries in 2019 with Georgia.

Despite the injuries, Cager helped lead the bulldogs to their third straight SEC Championship. He was second on the team in receptions (33) and receiving yards (476) behind George Pickens. Cager also caught four touchdowns for the Dawgs, all this in just 9 of 14 games in 2019.

Cager was unable to compete during the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine after undergoing ankle surgery a few months earlier.
