March 7 (UPI) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars released cornerback Davon House ahead of free agency starting Thursday.
House was due to make $6 million in each of the next two seasons and his release means the Jaguars now have approximately $79 million in salary cap space, ESPN.com reported Monday.
House, 27, signed a four-year, $24.5 million contract with $10 million guaranteed in March 2015. He set a single-season franchise record with 23 pass breakups in 2015 and led the Jaguars with four interceptions but lost his starting job last season after the first four weeks.
House had only 17 tackles in 2016, playing mainly on special teams after being benched.
The 6-foot, 200-pound House played four seasons with the Green Bay Packers before signing with the Jaguars. He started 14 games in those four seasons and broke up 25 passes with two interceptions.
