Blidi Wreh-Wilson, two 2015 draft picks among Titans cuts

The Titans have dropped their roster to 77 players and three of the cuts were draft picks from the years before General Manager Jon Robinson took over the personnel side of the shop.

Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson was a 2013 third-round pick who played 34 games for the team over the last three seasons. He started 14 of those games, but the addition of two free agents and two 2016 draft picks appear to have pushed him off the roster this time around.

The Titans also waived two 2015 sixth-round picks. Linebacker Deiontrez Mount, who played four games as a rookie, was dropped outright while center Andy Gallik, who made eight starts last season, was given an injury designation after having knee surgery. If Gallik is unclaimed, he will revert to the injured reserve list.

Defensive end Ropati Pitoitua, safety Lamarcus Brutus, tackle William Campbell, wide receiver Donte Foster, linebacker Amarlo Herrera, wide receiver Reece Horn, cornerback Tyler Patmon, offensive lineman Nick Ritcher and defensive end Mike Smith were also dropped from the roster.

Browns cut veteran pass rusher Paul Kruger

The Browns released veteran pass rusher Paul Kruger as part of their first wave of roster cuts Monday.

Kruger, 30, signed a five-year, $40 million deal with the Browns in 2013, not long after playing on the Ravens’ Super Bowl championship team. That was four offseasons and two administrations ago, and this move probably didn’t surprise Kruger as it makes sense for the Browns to go young and look towards the future.

Kruger didn’t miss a game in three seasons with the Browns but saw his sack total drop from 11 in 2014 to 2.5 last season. He figures to draw interest from teams at a reduced rate on the open market.

The Browns also released their kicker from last season, Travis Coons, as well as backup quarterback Austin Davis, tight end E.J. Bibbs, wide receivers Josh Boyce and Ed Eagan, defensive back Sean Baker, fullback Robert Hughes, tight end David Reeves and offensive lineman Cory Tucker.

Running back Glenn Winston and defensive lineman Nike Lawrence-Stample were placed on injured reserve.

Colts drop four more on way to 75 players

The Colts got the ball rolling on their cuts to 75 players by parting ways with 10 players over the weekend and the process continued on Monday.

The team announced that they have released tight end Konrad Reuland and waived wide receiver Daniel Anthrop, tackle Keith Lumpkin and running back Trey Williams.

Reuland has the most NFL experience of the quartet as he has seen action in 30 games as a member of the Jets and Ravens over the last four seasons. His release leaves the Colts with four tight ends on the roster.

Williams played two games for the Colts last season, rushing twice for 12 yards, and also spent time with the Cowboys, Dolphins, Redskins and Patriots. Anthrop and Lumpkin are both undrafted rookies this season.

While the Colts have cut 14 players from their 90-man roster, they still have two more moves to make after adding running back Stevan Ridley to the team.

Even though Patriots coach Bill Belichick resists terming the third preseason game a dress rehearsal for the regular season, it seemed telling that defensive tackle Terrance Knighton didn’t play in last Friday’s game against the Panthers.

On Monday, it was confirmed that pot roast won’t be on the team’s menu this season. Knighton bid farewell to the Patriots on Twitter amid reports that the team has released him.

Great respect for Robert Kraft and bill Belichick. Learned some things from my time here.

— Terrance Knighton (@MisterRoast98) August 29, 2016

Knighton got a $250,000 signing bonus when he agreed to a deal with the Patriots as a free agent this offseason and earned more via a workout bonus, but, like running back Donald Brown, that didn’t buy him a spot on the roster. Knighton had other interest in free agency and has been a useful player in Jacksonville, Denver and Washington so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him surface somewhere else sooner rather than later.

Ravens start making cuts to get to 75-man limit, put two on IR

The Ravens placed a pair of players on injured reserve, as they made a series of transactions to get to the 75-man limit before Tuesday’s deadline.

Moving tight end Benjamin Watson (torn Achilles) and cornerback Kyle Arrington (concussion) cleared the first two spots.

The name of the group of released players is veteran inside linebacker Kavell Conner, who spent six years in the league with the Colts and Chargers.

They also waived guard Jarell Broxton, defensive tackle Trevon Coley, wide receiver Dobson Collins, center Anthony Fabiano, wide receiver Chuck Jacobs, quarterback Jerrod Johnson, outside linebacker Mario Ojemudia and wide receiver Darius White.

The Ravens still have four moves to make.

Lions cutting veteran guard Geoff Schwartz

The Lions are clearly going younger on the offensive line, and General Manager Bob Quinn isn’t afraid to cut bait on guys he’s recently signed.

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Lions are cutting veteran guard Geoff Schwartz today.

The former Giants, Chiefs, Vikings and Panthers guard has battled injuries in the past, but he’s healthy now and ought to find work soon.

The Lions just traded for guard Brandon Thomas yesterday, giving them another option inside.

Schwartz was signed by Quinn this offseason, but the first-year Lions G.M. has also traded wide receiver Jeremy Kerley and cut running back Stevan Ridley, both of whom were signed this offseason as well.

The Broncos are trying to find a way to get quarterback Mark Sanchez off the roster while getting something back in return, but they need to drop to 75 players by Tuesday whether they can trade him or not.

They started the process of getting there on Monday by parting ways with 11 players, leaving them with four more moves to make before the deadline.

Safety Brandian Ross and wide receiver DeVier Posey are the most experienced of the group. Ross has played 45 games with the Raiders, Dolphins and Chargers since the start of the 2012 season while Posey caught 22 passes in 26 games for the Texans after they drafted him in the third round of the 2012 draft.

The other players let go are tight end Manasseh Garner, safety Antonio Glover, defensive lineman Calvin Heurtelou, tackle Cameron Jefferson, nose tackle David Moala, wide receiver Durron Neal, linebacker Darnell Sankey, linebacker Frank Shannon and offensive lineman Mathu Gibson.

The cuts have started in Detroit ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to get to 75 players.

The Lions announced that 10 players have been dropped from the roster and that long snapper Jimmy Landes has been placed on injured reserve. That group includes the previously reported release of veteran offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz.

Tight end Matthew Mulligan and cornerback Crezdon Butler joined Schwartz as vested veterans given their release on Monday. Mulligan, a blocking specialist, signed with the team in April while Butler has played 45 games for eight teams since 2010, including eight with the Lions last season.

Placing Landes on injured reserve with a shoulder injury means Don Muhlbach will be handling the team’s snapping for another year.

Kicker Devon Bell, wide receiver Quinshad Davis, guard Chase Farris, defensive end Deonte Gibson, defensive end Louis Palmer, cornerback Rashaad Reynolds and defensive end Quanterus Smith round out the list of former Lions. Detroit now has 78 players on the roster.

Brett Hundley, Jeff Janis return to practice for Packers, who also cut six guys

The Packers are blessed with enough offensive options that their backups get more attention than some teams’ starters.

And they got two guys they haven’t seen enough of back on the field Monday.

Via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, backup quarterback Brett Hundley and wide receiver Jeff Janis returned to practice today.

Janis has been out since Aug. 10 with a broken hand, and was practicing with a large club-type cast on. While that complicates the life of a person who catches things for a living, Janis would be able to take part in special teams with such an apparatus.

Hundley has only played in one preseason game, but unlike Aaron Rodgers, that wasn’t on purpose. He’s been bothered by an ankle injury throughout camp that has left most of the reps they were planning to give him in the hands of undrafted rookies Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams.

The Packers also announced the first six of their cuts. They released defensive tackle Demetris Anderson, cornerback Randall Jette, wide receiver Jamel Johnson, linebacker Derrick Mathews, punter Peter Mortell and wide receiver Ed Williams.

The Bengals cut 11 players from their 90-man roster on Monday, leaving them four shy of the 75-man limit ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to pare the roster to that number.

The unlucky 11 are wide receiver Michael Bennett, fullback Jeff Luc, defensive lineman Jack Gangwish, cornerback Corey Tindal, safety Floyd Raven, linebacker Darien Harris, quarterback Joe Licata, wide receiver Antwane Grant, kicker Zach Hocker, tight end John Peters, and linebacker Jayson DiManche.

DiManche played 28 games for the team in 2013 and 2014 before being released last September. He returned to the team in January after spending time with the Browns and Chiefs last season. Hocker kicked for the Saints and Rams in 2015, but couldn’t unseat Mike Nugent.

The Bengals could place defensive tackle Andrew Billings, who tore the meniscus in his knee, on injured reserve and move defensive tackle Brandon Thompson to the regular season PUP list as they continue making their way to 75 players.

Report: Seahawks to cut Brandon Browner

It appears cornerback Brandon Browner’s second stint with the Seahawks will come to an early end.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team will release Browner as they pare down their roster this week. He returned to the Seahawks in April after being released by the Saints following a dismal 2015 season in New Orleans.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during the offseason that the team had a hybrid safety/corner role in mind for Browner this season because Browner “matched up well” with tight ends and slot receivers. That idea didn’t play out as well on the field as it did in Carroll’s mind, however, and Browner was passed by others vying for roles in the Seattle secondary.

Neither Browner’s poor 2015 nor his inability to make the Seahawks this summer bode particularly well for him moving forward, although the constant need for cornerbacks could earn him looks with other teams before and after the regular season gets underway.

All but Hall, Palmer and Jacobs are either rookies or first-year players.

With the news that cornerback Mike Jenkins suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s game, the Cardinals lost a potential contributor in the secondary.

They officially ended his season later in the day by placing Jenkins on injured reserve. Eleven other players learned that they won’t be part of the team’s roster as well.

The Cardinals dropped long snapper Danny Dillon, leaving Kam Canaday as the winner of that competition, and they waived/injured quarterback Jake Coker. Coker, who suffered a knee injury, was the quarterback for Alabama when they won the national title last season but was behind Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton and Matt Barkley before his injury.

Arizona also parted ways with guard Jake Bernstein, receiver Amir Carlisle, tight end Gerald Christian, tackle Clay DeBord, defensive tackle Iosia Iosia, cornerback Asa Jackson, wide receiver Franky Okafor, cornerback Shaun Prater, punter Garrett Swanson and safety Tyrequek Zimmerman. They have two more moves to make to get down to 75 players.

Every team has to have its roster down to 75 players by Tuesday, and the Seahawks made an initial wave of roster moves Monday en route to getting there.

As previously reported, cornerback Brandon Browner was released. Releasing Browner and placing defensive tackle Sealver Siliga on injured reserve were the most notable moves made by the team Monday.

Siliga had a calf injury early in camp and then aggravated it while warming up for the team’s preseason opener. Siliga started 13 games and played in 25 over the last three seasons for the Patriots.

The Seahawks also waived fullback Kyle Coleman, wide receiver Montario Hunter and defensive end DeAngelo Tyson. Wide receiver Deshon Foxx, who spent some time on the team’s practice squad last season, was waived-injured.

The Seahawks still have to make nine roster moves by Tuesday’s deadline.

The Patriots also officially released veteran defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, a move that had been previously reported, and placed guard Tre’ Jackson on the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

The reserve/PUP designation means Jackson will miss at least the first six games of the regular season.

After announcing a handful of cuts on Monday afternoon as the team begins to trim its roster to the league maximum of 75 players by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline, the Seattle Seahawks released a member of their 2015 draft class on Monday evening.

Per his agent Brett Tessler, the Seahawks are releasing offensive lineman Kristjan Sokoli, a sixth-round pick last year.

Sokoli was a defensive lineman at the University of Buffalo that Seattle believed could develop into a strong offensive line prospect due to his athletic ability. The Seahawks made a similar conversion with J.R. Sweezy after selecting him in the seventh round of the 2012 draft and tried the same with 2013 seventh-round pick Jared Smith.

Seattle believed Sokoli could develop into an intriguing center prospect, but he never managed to work ahead of the third-team offensive line in training camp this year.

Tessler contends that Sokoli would be better off being moved back to the defensive side of the ball. He appeared in just one game for Seattle last year and played just eight snaps on special teams.

Quinton Coples didn’t fulfill expectations as a 2012 first-round pick for the Jets and failed to last four full years with the team before getting cut last November.

It didn’t take the Rams nearly that long to decide that the defensive lineman wasn’t for them. Coples was one of 14 players lopped from the roster on Monday as the team moved toward Tuesday’s 75-man limit. Coach Jeff Fisher said Coples worked hard, but there still wasn’t a spot for a player they signed as a free agent this offseason.

“But out of fairness to a player like Q, I didn’t see him making the team, and that’s exactly what I told him,” Fisher said, via the team’s website. “So I wanted to give him a chance — give him an opportunity — to get out there early to see if he could find work. And if not, we’re going to keep the door open for him.”

Quarterback Dylan Thompson, wide receiver Marquez North, wide receiver David Richards, tight end Benson Browne, tight end Jake Stoneburner, running back Zach Laskey, center Brian Folkerts, offensive lineman Jordan Swindle, defensive lineman Zach Colvin, linebacker Darreon Herring, safety Michael Caputo, kicker Taylor Bertolet and long snapper Jeff Overbaugh were the other cuts.

That was one of 12 moves that the Jaguars made to get to 78 players ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to cut to 75 players.

The team also placed offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach on injured reserve and transferred center Luke Bowanko and rookie defensive end Jonathan Woodard, who tore his Achilles in May, on the regular season PUP list.

The Jaguars also waived cornerback Demetrius McCray, linebacker Joplo Bartu, wide receiver Shaq Evans, kicker Sam Ficken, cornerback Mike Hilton, running back Cameron Marshall, punter Ryan Quigley and wide receiver Jamal Robinson.

The Colts only had to get to 75 players by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline, but they went a step further.

The team is down to 74 players after waiving linebacker Anthony Sarao and cornerback Darius White and placing safety Dezmen Southward on injured reserve.

Southward was a third-round pick by the Falcons in 2014 and played in all 16 games during his rookie season. He didn’t make it past November with the team last year as the coaching change following his first year appeared to change the direction the Falcons wanted to go at safety. He closed out the year on the Colts’ practice squad.

With 74 players, the Colts have room to add a player in the next few days and may have their eye on someone who has been cut loose elsewhere. They will then need to get down to 53 players on Saturday.

The Saints parted ways with a pair of veteran defensive linemen on Tuesday as they made their first cuts of the summer.

Defensive tackle C.J. Wilson and defensive end Matt Shaughnessy were both released on a day that also saw the Saints officially add offensive lineman Khalif Barnes and defensive end Chris McCain to the roster. Wilson, who has played in 78 games since 2010, signed with the team in June and played in all three preseason games before getting dropped. Shaughnessy was out of the league last year after six seasons with the Raiders and Cardinals.

The Saints also waived wide receivers R.J. Harris, Jared Dangerfield and Reggie Bell; safety Jamal Golden; tight end Rashaun Allen; fullback Sione Houma; guards Cyril Lemon and Kaleb Eulls; linebackers Dillon Lee and Tony Steward; defensive back Jimmy Pruitt; long snapper Chris Highland and cornerback Brandon Dixon. Offensive lineman Avery Young was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list and defensive end Hau’oli Kikaha, who tore his ACL in the spring, was placed on reserve/PUP.

That left the Saints with 74 players and they met with former Browns linebacker Paul Kruger Tuesday. Kruger could help replace Kikaha in a pass rushing role in New Orleans.

Bucs cut sixth-round rookie Dan Vitale

In April, the Buccaneers liked fullback/tight end Dan Vitale enough to pick him in the sixth round of the NFL draft. Today, the Bucs don’t like Vitale enough to keep him on the 53-man roster.

Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Vitale has been cut while undrafted rookie Alan Cross has earned the roster spot that most penciled in for Vitale.

Vitale played his college football at Northwestern and was viewed as a good blocker who might need some time to learn to play in an NFL passing offense. He may still make it back to the Bucs on the practice squad, but the fact that he didn’t make the 53-man roster shows that he fell short of expectations in training camp and the preseason.

The Bucs plan to keep five tight ends on the 53-man roster: Cross, Cameron Brate, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Luke Stocker and Brandon Myers.

On Thursday, Bills coach Rex Ryan said that “it might be hard” to keep fullback Glenn Gronkowski from making the team and joining his brother in the AFC East this season.

The Bills have apparently decided not to do things the hard way. According to multiple reports, veteran fullback Jerome Felton has been released by the Bills on Friday.

Felton signed with the team in March 2015 after spending the previous three seasons blocking for Adrian Peterson in Minnesota and played in all 16 games with the Bills last season. He was set to make a base salary of $1.55 million during the 2016 season.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team has also released cornerback Sterling Moore. Moore signed with the Bills as a free agent in April. He has experience playing both inside and outside during his time with the Buccaneers, Cowboys and Patriots, something that could make him an appealing option for teams looking for cornerback help in the coming days.

Felton and Moore join linebacker Manny Lawson as veteran deletions from Buffalo’s roster on Friday.

Report: Titans releasing Sankey, Hunter

For the Titans, it’s out with the old draft picks and in with picks made by the new guy in charge.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, running back Bishop Sankey and wide receiver Justin Hunter are among the team’s cuts. They follow 2015 second-rounder Dorial Green-Beckham out the door; Green-Beckham was traded to the Eagles last month by new Titans general manager Jon Robinson.

Hunter, 25, was a second-round pick of the Titans in 2013. He started 13 games over the last two seasons but never had more than 30 catches in a season and his touchdowns and yards per catch averages had dropped each year since his rookie year.

Sankey, 23, was a second-rounder in 2014, and with the team having added DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry in the offseason, this is a cut lots of people saw coming. The Titans also released running back David Cobb, a 2015 draft pick, earlier in the week.

Hunter got squeezed out in part by rookie wide receiver Tajae Sharpe and the acquisition of veteran Andre Johnson, who appears to be very much in the team’s 2016 plans.

Buccaneers make their cuts, keep all three quarterbacks

The Buccaneers stayed true to coach Dirk Koetter’s word, and kept all three of their quarterbacks as they reduced their roster.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs aren’t going to officially announce their moves until Saturday, but since they played on Wednesday and there’s a hurricane going on, they went ahead and did their business today.

In making their moves, they’ve kept quarterbacks Mike Glennon and Ryan Griffin behind starter Jamies Winston, despite Koetter’s stated preference to keep just two on the 53-man roster.

The Buccaneers cut the following players: Running backs Peyton Barber and Russell Hansbrough, wide receivers Bernard Reedy, Kenny Bell, Freddie Martino and Jonathan Krause, tight end Danny Vitale, offensive linemen Josh Allen, Ben Gottschalk, Kelvin Palmer and Kyler Kerbyson, defensive end Kourtnei Brown, defensive tackles Cliff Matthews and A.J. Francis, linebackers Luke Rhodes, Josh Keyes, Jeremiah George and Micah Awe and defensive backs Javien Elliott and Isaiah Johnson, who both could end up on practice squad.

Wide receiver Louis Murphy and guard J.R. Sweezy remain on the physically unable to perform list.

Randell Johnson out in Buffalo as well

The names dropped from the Bills roster as they make their cut to 53 players have started to trickle in with linebacker Manny Lawson, fullback Jerome Felton and cornerback Sterling Moore all landing in the discard pile.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that linebacker Randell Johnson will be joining them.

Johnson was a seventh-round pick of the Bills in 2014 and has played in 15 games for the team over the last two seasons. He made one start and seven tackles for Buffalo over that period.

The Bills acquired several linebackers this summer, including Brandon Spikes, Lerentee McCray and Ramon Humber. Their arrivals may have helped squeeze Johnson off the roster.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that wide receiver Kain Colter has also been let go by the Bills.

Jeremiah Poutasi joins exodus of Ruston Webster draft picks in Tennessee

The Titans started parting ways with high draft choices made by former General Manager Ruston Webster when they traded wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham to the Eagles last month and the hits have kept on coming Friday.

Previous reports had wide receiver Justin Hunter and running back Bishop Sankey bounced from the roster and there are multiple reports that offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi has been waived as well.

Poutasi was the 66th overall pick in the 2015 draft and opened last season as the team’s starting right tackle. He lost that job halfway through the season and a move to guard this year didn’t do anything to enhance his standing on the roster as the Titans moved into the preseason.

As with the other moves involving high picks from Webster, Poutasi’s departure helps establish a new path for the team under General Manager Jon Robinson. Given the records of Webster’s teams, it’s not hard to understand why the team opted to move in that direction.

A bit surprised that TJ Jones didn't make it. Figured he'd be the #4 or #5 WR. Rudock getting cut was also a minor surprise. Probably back on the practice squad.

It's too bad that they jumped the gun on putting Corey Fuller on IR, he could have joined all of those other guys

Not going to get too worked about any one cut or inclusion*. I think it's obvious that, as opposed to previous years, there's going to be a lot of activity in the coming week.

*I really hope Rudock clears waivers.
