The Jaguars’ rebuilding efforts will not include veteran cornerback Rashean Mathis.

Mathis, the franchise record holder with 30 interceptions, was told by general manager Dave Caldwell late Tuesday afternoon he would not be offered a new contract.

Because of Mathis’ age (he turns 33 on Aug. 27) and recent injury history (11 missed games the last two years), and the Jaguars’ commitment to a youth movement, the decision wasn’t a surprise.

A Jacksonville native who attended Englewood High School, Mathis was a second-round draft pick in 2003 and played in 137 games, which ranks fifth in Jaguars history.

“Believe it or not, I’m at peace with everything,” he told the Times-Union. “Playing in my hometown for 10 years and doing things the right way, I’m blessed to be able to say that. Could I ask for anything more than that being drafted out of Bethune-Cookman? Who would have drawn that up? No painter could have drawn that up.”
