Bills drop 11, including Dennis Dixon
Posted by Mike Florio on August 25, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

The Buffalo Bills have parted ways with 11 players, in an effort to get toward the 75-man roster limit that becomes effective on Tuesday.

Gone are quarterback Dennis Dixon, safety Derek Brim, punter Jake Dombrowski, receiver Tori Gurley, safety Jajuan Harley, kicker Dustin Hopkins, defensive tackle Damien Jacobs, center Mackey MacPherson, receiver Chris Summer, guard J.J. ‘Unga, and running back Ronnie Wingo.

Hopkins was a sixth-round pick of the Bills in 2013. But he’s a kicker; in a quarterback-driven league, the decision to drop Dixon could mean that the one-time Heisman candidate finally has been driven out of the league.

A fifth-round pick of the Steelers in 2008, Dixon last appeared in a regular-season game during the 2010 season.

Texans put David Quessenberry on IR on way to 75 players
Posted by Josh Alper on August 25, 2014, 10:28 AM EDT

The Texans have known for some time that they wouldn’t have offensive lineman David Quessenberry on their roster this season, but he didn’t officially make his way to injured reserve until Monday.

Quessenberry was diagnosed with lymphoma during the offseason vowed to “kick cancer’s butt” during a visit with his teammates after learning about the disease. We hope he does just that and then returns to the Texans in great shape in time for next season.

The procedural move with Quessenberry was one of 10 moves the Texans made on Monday to start whittling the roster down to 75 players. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team also waived guard Sam Longo, wide receiver Joe Adams, wide receiver Alec Lemon, running back William Powell, defensive tackle David Hunter, defensive tackle Austin Brown, linebacker Terrance Lloyd, linebacker Lawrence Sidbury and cornerback Junior Mertile.

Houston has four more moves to make before Tuesday’s deadline to make their first round of cuts.

Colts down to 79 players
Posted by Josh Alper on August 25, 2014, 9:14 AM EDT

The Colts have started their journey to a 75-man roster on Monday morning by parting ways with 11 players.

As is often the case in the first round of cuts, the Colts haven’t made any surprising moves. The players let go were all long shots for roster spots when they joined the team and failed to change that outlook over the course of training camp.

The Colts waived cornerback Johnny Adams, cornerback Qua Cox (pictured), guard Andre Cureton, guard Marcus Hall, cornerback Kameron Jackson, wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson, linebacker Jonathon Sharpe, safety David Sims, wide receiver Eric Thomas, wide receiver Tony Washington and fullback Cameron White.

Indianapolis is now down to 79 players, leaving them with four more moves to make to set their roster by Tuesdays deadline.

Chiefs release 11 players
Posted by Mike Florio on August 25, 2014, 9:14 AM EDT

The teams of the deadline-driven NFL continue to drive toward Tuesday’s 75-man roster limit well in advance of the last minute for doing so.

The Chiefs have announced that 11 players have been released. Gone are receiver Deon Anthony, defensive lineman Jairus Campbell, defensive tackle Jermelle Cudjo, receiver Weston Dressler, guard Otis Hudson, receiver Jerrell Jackson, cornerback Brandon Jones, cornerback Vernon Kearney, safety Jerron McMillian, tight end Adam Schlitz, and receiver Darryl Surgent. Also, safety Sanders Commings, a fifth-round pick in 2013, has been placed on injured reserve.

The Chiefs are now at 78 players. They have to make three more roster moves by 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and another 22 by Saturday.

Raiders begin the process by cutting seven
Posted by Darin Gantt on August 25, 2014, 6:29 AM EDT

The Raiders began the process of getting to the 75-man roster limit, with seven releases Sunday.

According to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com, the Raiders cut the following players: Tight end Kyle Auffray, offensive tackle Emmett Cleary, linebacker Justin Cole, wide receiver Mike Davis, defensive tackle Torrell Troup, cornerback Jansen Watson and wide receiver Rahsaan Vaughn.

None of the cuts were a surprise, and they’ll have to pare eight more from the roster before Tuesday’s deadline.

The Jaguars made most of their moves to get to the 75-man limit Sunday, cutting 11 players, including cornerback Mike Harris. They’ll need to make four more by Tuesday.

Via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Harris had started 11 games the past two years for the Jaguars, but recent years have saw them upgrade the secondary.

Also waived were Harris, linebackers Josh Hull and Allen Bradford, centers Patrick Lewis and Antoine Caldwell, wide receivers Kenny Shaw and Ramses Barden, safety Joe Young, fullback Harvey Unga, defensive tackle David Carter (waived-injured) and long snapper Charley Hughlett.

Of the group, Harris was the only one on the Jaguars roster last year, and he leaves just five draft picks from former General Manager Gene Smith’s administration on the roster (and one of them is a punter).

Winston Justice among first Broncos cuts
Posted by Josh Alper on August 24, 2014, 9:01 PM EDT

The Broncos are the latest team to announce a round of cuts ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to get to 75 players.

There weren’t any major surprises among the 11 players Denver let go, but tackle Winston Justice’s release might qualify as a minor one. He signed a one-year deal to remain with the team in March that had a small amount of guaranteed money, although clearly not enough to get the team to keep him over other backup tackle options like Michael Schofield and Paul Cornick.

The Broncos also released veteran linebacker Jamar Chaney with an injured designation. Running back Brennan Clay, wide receiver Greg Hardin, linebacker Jerrell Harris, safety Charles Mitchell, quarterback Bryn Renner, wide receiver Greg Wilson, running back Jerodis Williams, defensive tackle Will Pericak and defensive end Chase Vaughn were also dropped from the roster.

Denver has to make two more moves to get to 75 players.

Raiders begin slide to 75
Posted by Mike Florio on August 24, 2014, 6:36 PM EDT

Like many teams, the Raiders have opted to get to 75 players via at least two waves of roster moves.

Oakland launched the process by reducing to 83, via the release of seven players.

Gone are tight end Kyle Auffray, tackle Emmett Cleary, linebacker Justin Cole, receiver Mike Davis, defensive tackle Torell Troup (pictured), receiver Rahsaan Vaughn, and cornerback Jansen Watson.

Troup, a second-round pick of the Bills in 2010, was out of football in 2013 before signing with the Raiders in January.

Like all teams, the Raiders must get to 75 players by 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Falcons get down to 75 players
Posted by Josh Alper on August 24, 2014, 5:53 PM EDT

We haven’t seen a sneak preview of this week’s Hard Knocks, but it’s a good bet that some of the episode will focus on the 11 players given their pink slips on Sunday.

It’s a staple of the show, which means defensive end Theo Agnew, linebacker Brendan Daley, linebacker Darin Drakeford, safety Devonta Glover-Wright, wide receiver Julian Jones, quarterback Jeff Mathews, linebacker Walker May, running back Jerome Smith, wide receiver Tramaine Thompson, tight end Brian Wozniak and safety Tyrell Johnson may find themselves with some extended screen time while they hand in their playbooks.

The Falcons got the rest of the way to 75 players with four moves involving injured players. Linebacker Marquis Spruill and offensive lineman Mike Johnson were both placed on injured reserve, with Johnson’s injury robbing them of some needed depth in the wake of tackle Sam Baker’s latest knee injury.

Wide receiver Drew Davis and safety Zeke Motta will go on the regular season version of the PUP list, which means they’ll need to wait six weeks before practicing or playing in the regular season.

Rob Jackson among early cuts in Washington
Posted by Josh Alper on August 24, 2014, 5:32 PM EDT

The Redskins have started the process of paring their roster down to 75 men by Tuesday’s deadline.

The most notable name among the 10 players involved in Sunday’s moves is linebacker Rob Jackson. Jackson joined the team as a seventh-round pick in 2008 and has played in 54 games for the team over the last six seasons.

Jackson spent most of that time as a backup to Brian Orakpo, but had 4.5 sacks, four interceptions, two forced fumbles and a touchdown while making 14 starts with Orakpo out of the lineup in the 2012 season. The Redskins drafted Trent Murphy in the second round this year and he’s moved into the spot that Jackson used to occupy on the depth chart.

Fullback Stephen Campbell, wide receiver Cody Hoffman, linebacker Jeremy Kimbrough, wide receiver Rashad Lawrence, safety Ross Madison, defensive end Jake McDonough, linebacker Adrian Robinson and defensive end Jeremy Towns were also cut on Sunday. Tight end Mike Caussin has been placed on injured reserve.

Return man Eric Page, trick-shot QB Alex Tanney among Bucs’ cuts
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 24, 2014, 4:22 PM EDT

The Buccaneers are closing in on the 75-man roster limit, and the biggest news is that there will be a new kick returner in Tampa Bay this season.

Eric Page, who handled both punt returns and kickoff returns for the Bucs last year, was among the players placed on waivers. Last year Page returned 23 punts for 251 yards and 22 kickoffs for 548 yards. With Page gone, the leading contenders to win the return job are undrafted rookie receiver Solomon Patton and speedy running backs Jeff Demps and Bobby Rainey.

Quarterback Alex Tanney, known as the trick-shot QB for a viral video showing him making seemingly impossible throws, was also let go.

Also cut by the Bucs were long snapper Jeremy Cain, DT Euclid Cummings, OL Jace Daniels, WR Skye Dawson, OL Jason Foster, DE Ryne Giddins, G R.J. Mattes, WR Tommy Streeter, DE Chaz Sutton and FB Ian Thompson.

Panthers get down to 79 with 10 moves Sunday
Posted by Darin Gantt on August 24, 2014, 2:09 PM EDT

The Panthers started peeling away some of the layers of their “competition” for receiving jobs, with more moves certainly on the horizon.

Along with the previously reported Tiquan Underwood, the Panthers also released wideouts Marvin McNutt, Kealoha Pilares and Toney Clemons in their first wave of cuts.

Pilares was a former fifth-round pick and return option, while McNutt was a guy given a chance to win a job this offseason with the mass exodus of wideouts who did not respond well.

The Panthers also waived punter Jordan Gay, defensive tackle Linden Gaydosh, defensive end Alex Hall, tackle Oscar Johnson, linebacker Anthony Morales and defensive end Craig Roh.

They’re now down to 79 players, and have until Tuesday afternoon to carve four more names off the list.

Packers dump seven players
Posted by Mike Florio on August 24, 2014, 1:25 PM EDT

The cool kids say the NFL is a deadline-driven business. But plenty of teams are doing business more than two days in advance of the next big deadline.

Count the Packers among those getting a jump on the Tuesday timetable for cutting the roster to 75. They’ve dropped seven players.

Gone are safety Charles Clay, cornerback Antonio Dennard, receiver Chris Harper (pictured), linebacker Korey Jones, fullback Ina Liaina, quarterback Chase Rettig, and receiver Gerrard Sheppard.

Harper, a fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2013, was claimed off waivers from the 49ers last October. He appeared in four games for the Packers last year, with no catches. Sheppard arrived via waivers on July 30, after being released by the Ravens.

Lions get down to 75 players
Posted by Josh Alper on August 25, 2014, 1:11 PM EDT

The Lions settled their kicking competition on Monday.

Seventh-round pick Nate Freese is the team’s choice with Giorgio Tavecchio among six players released on Monday as the team made its way down to 75 players ahead of Tuesday’s deadline. The Lions had made a previous round of moves to get the ball rolling on Sunday.

Tavecchio will now become an option for Denver and other teams looking for a kicker before the start of the season. Tavechhio has also seen time with the 49ers and Packers, but has yet to kick in a regular season game.

The other notable name cut loose by the Lions on Monday was cornerback Jonte Green. The 2012 sixth-rounder played 24 games for the Lions over the last two seasons, but fell too far down the depth chart this summer. Cornerback Aaron Hester, fullback Chad Abram, quarterback James Franklin and punter Drew Butler were also cut from the roster.

Safety DeJon Gomes was placed on injured reserve to round out the team’s transactions.

Seahawks announce first wave of roster cuts, including Wade Smith
Posted by Mike Florio on August 25, 2014, 1:15 PM EDT

The reigning NFL champions have commenced the process of identifying the best 53 players to attempt to defend the crown.

The team officially announced on Monday a variety of roster moves, headlined by the release of veteran tackle Wade Smith and veteran cornerback Terrell Thomas.

Smith, a 12-year veteran, started every game in Houston from 2010 through 2013. He signed with the Seahawks on August 4.

Also gone are tackle Cory Brandon, running back Demitrius Bronson, safety Mike Dobson, defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, receiver Kevin Smith, and cornerback Thomas Wolfe.

Jeffcoat, the 2013 Big 12 defensive player of the year and winner of the Ted Hendricks Award, arrived as an undrafted free agent with a “boulder” on his shoulder. That still wasn’t enough to get Jeffcoat to the final 75.

a few interesting cuts: martez wilson - guy was a beast MLB at Illinois with sick measurables, hard to believe there s not a place in the league for him. wonder if he was injured, not working hard, etc. michael egnew a big TE with some serious speed. tony scheffler type of player.

Kickers - veterans Feely and Succup if they get cut would be a worth a look by the Lions. Also Dustin Hopkins had about as good of a college career as a kicker can have. Furney from NYJ made a long pressure kick in one of there games.

NE CUTS - they cut 3 veteran lineman who ve had good careers. maybe someone could use the depth.

Good call--we actually signed Egnew yesterday. No idea how he's going to make the team though.

Bills release QB Thad Lewis

Thad Lewis
AP
The Bills have further pared their QB ranks.

The club has released Thad Lewis, PFT’s Mike Florio reported Tuesday. Lewis was competing for the top reserve role behind starting quarterback EJ Manuel.

The Bills have not been happy with the play of their backup passers. On Monday, they added ex-Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer and released Dennis Dixon.

The 26-year-old Lewis has completed 17-of-33 passes for 168 yards with two interceptions and no TDs in exhibition play. He has been sacked three times.

The departure of Lewis leaves Manuel, Palmer and Jeff Tuel as Buffalo’s quarterbacks. The Bills host the Lions on Thursday evening.

Steelers drop down to 81 players

The Steelers have announced their first round of cuts on the way to 75 players.

Nine players have been given their walking papers, leaving the Steelers with six more moves to make before Tuesday afternoon’s deadline.

The list is light on recognizable names and players with NFL experience. The one exemption to the latter is linebacker Vic So’oto, who has played 13 games for the Packers, Raiders and Cardinals after signing with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

Pittsburgh also parted ways with running back Miguel Maysonet, defensive back Jordan Dangerfield, running back Jordan Hall, wide receiver C.J. Goodwin, cornerback Devin Smith, wide receiver Kashif Moore, tight end Matt Waters and cornerback Lew Toler.

The Bengals began whittling down their roster by parting ways with a 2011 draft pick.

Wide receiver Ryan Whalen, a sixth-round pick that year, was one of five players let go by the team as they make their way to a 75-man roster by Tuesday afternoon’s deadline. Whalen played in 17 games for the Bengals over the last three years and made 11 catches, although he didn’t have any receptions in four appearances last season.

Cornerback R.J. Stanford, who played in 41 games for the Dolphins and Panthers over the last three years, was the other player with regular season experience let go by the Bengals. Defensive lineman Larry Black, safety Isaiah Lewis, and kicker Quinn Sharp are the other former members of the squad.

Some of the departed players could be options for the practice squad in Cincinnati this season, although those decisions will have to wait until the weekend cut to 53 players.

NE CUTS - they cut 3 veteran lineman who ve had good careers. maybe someone could use the depth.


Good call--we actually signed Egnew yesterday. No idea how he's going to make the team though.


Could just be depth for preseason game 4. That way they don't have to use Pett or Ebron for extended time. Get a lot of tape on them for down the road.
