“We are disappointed to hear the news regarding Jalen today,” coach Dan Quinn said in a statement released by the team. “I have already spoken to Jalen about this, and I have no doubt this will be something that he will learn from.”

Aaron Colvin was Jacksonville’s top cornerback last season, leading the defense in snaps played while notching four sacks, seven passes defensed and 73 tackles.

“I made a mistake and I will take responsibility for it,” Colvin said in a statement. “I apologize to my family, the Jaguars’ organization, especially my coaches and teammates, as well as Jaguars fans who have been supportive of me since I was drafted here in 2014.
