NFL Roster Cuts 2013: Tracking Latest Players Released from All 32 Teams

1 of 33

    One of the roughest days for players, NFL coaches and front-office folks is when the final roster cuts are due. The NFL may be a business—and often a cold one at that—but having to tell a man his dream (at least temporarily) is over can't be easy. 

    But it's part of being a professional athlete, and this weekend, the preseason cycle will complete itself once again. Here, we'll track each notable cut as NFL teams trim their rosters to 53. 

    All updates via NFL.com.

Arizona Cardinals

2 of 33
    Players Cut S Jonathon Amaya, C Adam Bice, WR Dan Buckner, DT David Carter, TE Alex Gottlieb, WR Charles Hawkins, OT Jamaal Johnson-Webb, G Senio Kelemete, LB Zack Nash, LB Colin Parker, TE Richard Quinn, G Chilo Rachal, LB Kenny Rowe, DT Padric Scott, S Curtis Taylor, WR Kerry Taylor, WR Mike Thomas, LB Reggie Walker

    Ryan Williams, who has struggled with injuries but showed promise when healthy, made the cut, while guard Chilo Rachal, who started games with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears, wasn't so lucky. 

Atlanta Falcons

3 of 33
     Players CutLB Brian Banks, FB Patrick DiMarco, G Theo Goins, DT Neal Huynh, LBRobert James, WR Darius Johnson, CB Terrence Johnson, CB Jordan Mabin, GPhillipkeith Manley, S Charles Mitchell, WR Martel Moore, DT Micanor Regis, DT Adam Replogle, WRJames Rodgers, OT Alec Savoie, LB Pat Schiller, K Jeremy Shelley, CB Peyton Thompson, RB Ronnie Wingo

     

    UPDATE: Friday, August 30, at 12:20 p.m. ET by Timothy Rapp

    Sadly, the dream has come to an end for Brian Banks—or at least the dream of making the 53-man roster for the Atlanta Falcons—as he was released, according to NFL insider Jay Glazer.

    ---End of update---

     

    Few players have been a better story this preseason than Brian Banks, who was signed by the Atlanta Falcons after serving five years in prison for a rape he didn't commit. Making the team was always a long shot for Banks, but his story has been one worth following. 

Baltimore Ravens

4 of 33
    Players CutRB Anthony Allen, CB Marc Anthony, TE Billy Bajema, S Omar Brown, LB Nigel Carr, RB Delone Carter, LB Brandon Copeland, QB Dayne Crist, OT Jordan Devey, WR Tandon Doss, TE Matt Furstenburg, OT Roger Gaines, QB Caleb Hanie, DT Cody Larsen, RB Bobby Rainey, TE Alex Silvestro, C Reggie Stephens, OT J.J. Unga, WR LaQuan Williams

     

    UPDATE: August 30, at 9:34 p.m. ET by Joseph Zucker

    Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reported both Caleb Hanie and Delone Carter were cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Friday. The two had underwhelming performances against the St. Louis Rams in Baltimore's final preseason game.

    UPDATE: Friday, August 30, at 9:42 p.m. ET by Joseph Zucker

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported both Kevin Kolb and Brad Smith were placed on injured reserve by the Buffalo Bills.

    ---End of update---

     

    UPDATE: Friday, August 30, at 10:55 a.m. ET by Timothy Rapp

    Matt Leinart has been cut by the Buffalo Bills, failing to stick at quarterback. According to Ian Rapoprt of NFL.com, Leinart tweeted the following on Friday: "Tough game. Tough situation. No excuses. Thanks you to the Bills organization!"

    ---End of update--- 

     

    Utility weapon Brad Smith wasn't a lock to crack the roster as a wide receiver, as the Buffalo Bills had several contenders for the No. 5 spot. He held on in the end, however, but it remains to be seen how much of an impact he'll make.

Carolina Panthers

6 of 33
    Players CutWR Brenton Bersin, OT Patrick Brown, S D.J. Campbell, OL Garrett Chisolm, QB Jimmy Clausen, TE Dominique Curry, WR David Gettis, CB Drayton Florence, DT Sione Fua, OG Hayworth Hicks, LB Doug Hogue, WR Taulib Ikharo, LB Ben Jacobs, S Robert Lester, OG Tori Mobley, TE Zach Pianalto, RB Tauren Poole, DE Craig Roh, S Anderson Russell, WR James Shaw, DT Casey Walker, LB Jason Williams

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 9:15 a.m. ET by Patrick Clarke

    According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport via Twitter, the Panthers have released former second-round draft pick Jimmy Clausen: 

    #Panthers have released QB Jimmy Clausen, I'm told. Former 2nd rounder.

    — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 31, 2013

    Rapoport also reports that Carolina parted ways with veteran defensive back Drayton Florence:

    Back at it again this morning for #CutDownDay. First surprise: #Panthers cut veteran CB Drayton Florence, source says.

Chicago Bears

Thomas, WR Terrence Toliver, DT Christian Tupou, RB Harvey Unga, OT J'Marcus Webb, DL Aston Whiteside, C/OG Edwin Williams, DE Josh Williams, DE Cheta Ozougwu

    Earl Bennett was reportedly put on the trade block on Thursday, according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, which is never a good sign for a player in the preseason. He did, however, survive the cuts on Saturday.

Cincinnati Bengals

8 of 33
    Players CutFB John Conner, LS Bryce Davis, S Tony Dye, OT Reid Fragel, WR Cobi Hamilton, RB Daniel Herron, C T.J. Johnson, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, CB Onterio McCalebb, LB Dontay Moch, CB Shaun Prater, WR Taveon Rogers, WR Roy Roundtree, OT Dennis Roland, LB J.K. Schaffer, DT Terrence Stephens, QB John Skelton, OG John Sullen, LB Bruce Taylor

    Orson Charles beat out John "Terminator" Conner as the team's starting fullback. Safety Taylor Mays also survived and will be a backup this year, contributing mostly on special teams barring an injury to a starter.

Cleveland Browns

9 of 33
    Players Cut

    OL Aaron Adams, DB Akeem Auguste, K Brandon Bogotay, OL Braxston Cave, LB Justin Cole, RB Jamaine Cook, DL Hall Davis, WR Mike Edwards, TE Dan Gronkowski, WR Tori Gurley, LB James-Michael Johnson, DB Abdul Kanneh, RB Miguel Maysonet, WR David Nelson, DB Kent Richardson, WR Naaman Roosevelt, DL Brian Sanford, P/K Colton Schmidt, S Jamoris Slaughter, LB Justin Staple, TE Kellen Davis, LB L.J. Fort, RB Brandon Jackson, FB Brad Smelley, OG Jarrod Shaw, OT Caylin Hauptmann

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 10 a.m. ET by Patrick Clarke

    The Browns have released former Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Nelson in an effort to cut their roster down to 53 players by Saturday evening, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport on Twitter:

    #Browns have released WR David Nelson, who is recovering from an ACL and had a bone bruise (detailed here: http://t.co/m2u2pwM3lh)

    — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 31, 2013

    ---End of update---

     

    UPDATE: Friday, August 30, at 9:52 p.m. ET by Joseph Zucker

    ProFootballTalk reported the Cleveland Browns cut Dan Gronkowski. A 14-yard touchdown catch in the Browns' 18-16 win over the Chicago Bears wasn't enough for the 28-year-old to keep his job.

    ---End of update---

     

     

Dallas Cowboys

10 of 33
    Players CutWR Anthony Armstrong, OT Demetress Bell, WR Tim Benford, CB Xavier Brewer, WR Danny Coale, OT Edawn Coughman, G Ray Dominguez, DE Jabari Fletcher, DE Thaddeus Gibson, CB Jakar Hamilton, C Kevin Kowalski, LB Cameron Lawrence, RB Kendial Lawrence, DT Jerome Long, LB Brandon Magee, LB Caleb McSurdy, CB Sterling Moore, CB Micah Pellerin, LB Taylor Reed, QB Alex Tanney, DE Jason Vega

    Quarterback Alex Tanney, who had shown promise in the preseason, was part of the cuts to get the Cowboys down to 53 players.

Denver Broncos

11 of 33
    Players CutRB Lance Ball, DE Jeremy Beal, OL Philip Blake, OT Paul Cornick, OL C.J. Davis, DT Romney Fuga, DE Ben Garland, CB Aaron Hester, LB Damien Holmes, RB Jeremiah Johnson, WR Tavarres King, C Ryan Lilja, TE Jake O'Connell, OT Vinston Painter, S Ross Rasner, WR Gerell Robinson, WR Lamaar Thomas, DE John Youboty, RB Jacob Hester

    The Denver Broncos experimented by trying Quentin Jammer at safety this preseason. The move hasn't worked, meaning the 34-year-old was in serious danger of being chopped.

    However, after surviving the cut to 53, Jammer appears to be a part of the team's plans in 2013. 

Detroit Lions

12 of 33
    Players CutOG Rodney Austin, DB Ron Bartell, RB Shaun Chapas, P Blake Clingan, DT Andrew Fluelen, WR Corey Fuller, CB Chris Greenwood, OT Kevin Haslam, LB Brandon Hepburn, STyrell Johnson, OL Darren Keyton, LB Jon Morgan, RB Steven Miller, LB Jon Morgan, S Martavius Neloms, DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo, DT Xavier Proctor, DT Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, OL Jake Scott, S Amari Spievey, LB Chris White, WR Matt Willis, LB Rocky McIntosh

    Safety Amari Spievey, who started 26 games for the Lions the past three years, was one of the players cut on Saturday as Detroit cut down to 53.

Green Bay Packers

13 of 33
    Players CutFB Jonathan Amosa, OT Andrew Datko, S David Fulton, C Garth Gerhart, RBAlex Green, OT Kevin Hughes, WR Charles Johnson, C Patrick Lewis, LB Terrell Manning, CB Loyce Means, DT Jordan Miller, LB Dezman Moses, TE Matthew Mulligan, CB James Nixon, S Chaz Powell, LB Donte Savage, CB Brandon Smith, TE Jake Stoneburner, WR Tyrone Walker, WR Myles White, TED.J. Williams, QB Vince Young

    Aaron Rodgers is obviously the starter at quarterback. Many people thought Vince Young had the backup role wrapped up, but after the quarterback tweeted his release, the Packers will turn to B.J. Coleman if Rodgers goes down to an injury: 

    Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season.

    — Vince Young (@VinceYoung) August 31, 2013

Houston Texans

14 of 33
    Players CutDE Keith Browner, TE Jake Byrne, DB Roc Carmichael, FB Tyler Clutts, ILBCameron Collins, WR Andy Cruse, G Tyler Horn, NT David Hunter, DE Delano Johnson, RB Dennis Johnson, S Orhian Johnson, NT Chris Jones, RB Deji Karim, C Alex Kupper, CB Elbert Mack, OT Nate Menkin, ILB Mike Mohamed, WR Uzoma Nwachukwu, WR Mike Smith, S Jawanza Starling

    Case Keenum impressed during the preseason, and he earned a spot on the team's 53-man roster as the No. 3 quarterback. He'll sit behind starter Matt Schaub and primary backup T.J. Yates.

Indianapolis Colts

15 of 33
    Players CutOLB, Daniel Adongo, S Larry Asante, C Thomas Austin, CB Marshay Green, DE Lawrence Guy, QB Chandler Harnish, FB Robert Hughes, T Ben Ijalana, TE Dominique Jones, WR Jeremy Kelley, Lb Josh McNary, DT Drake Nevis, CB Sheldon Price, WR Jabin Sambrano, WR Lanear Sampson, LB Monte Simmons, OT Bradley Sowell, NT Martin Tevaseu, OL Lee Ziemba, RB Kerwynn Williams

    Caesar Rayford wowed coaches and fans alike this preseason with five sacks, and the linebacker earned a spot on the team's 53-man roster as a result. This is a great opportunity for the 27-year-old player to see some quality snaps.

Jacksonville Jaguars

16 of 33
    Players Cut DT T.J. Barnes, WR Toney Clemons, DE Ryan Davis, OT R.J. Dill, WR Jeremy Ebert, DE Pannel Egboh, RB Jonathan Grimes, QB Mike Kafka, LB Brandon Marshall, WR Charly Martin, OT Pat McQuistan, G Drew Nowak, TE Ryan Otten, WR Tobais Palmer, CB Kevin Rutland, QB Matt Scott, LB Julian Stanford, S Steven Terrell, CB Marcus Trufant, LB Mike Zimmer, DT Kyle Love, WR Jordan Shipley, DB Antwon Blake, TE Brett Brackett, OL Dan Gerberry, FB Lonnie Pryor, LB Andy Studebaker

     

    UPDATE: Friday, August 31, at 3:45 p.m. ET by Timothy Rapp

    Mike Kafka has lost the third-string quarterback battle and was cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday.

    ---End of update---

     

     

Kansas City Chiefs

17 of 33
    Players CutCB Vince Agnew, DE Miguel Chavis, WR Terrance Copper, OL Ryan Durand, OL Hutch Eckerson, DB Otha Foster III, OL A.J. Hawkins, DE Rob Lohr, Kamaal McIlwain, WR Jamar Newsome, RB Jordan Roberts, WR Tyler Shoemaker, QB Ricky Stanzi, DB Neiko Thorpe, FB Braden Wilson, LB Zach Diles, CB Jalil Brown, WR Devon Wylie, DT Jerrell Powe

    A.J. Jenkins was nothing but a disappointment for the San Francisco 49ers. He hasn't set the field on fire for the Kansas City Chiefs either, but it appears the team will keep him around after he survived Saturday's cuts. 

Miami Dolphins

18 of 33
    Players CutOT Jeff Adams, LB Antwan Applewhite, G Chris Barker, C Sam Brenner, WR Chad Bumphis, QB Aaron Corp, WR Keenan Davis, DT A.J.

    Veteran linebacker Antwan Applewhite was one of the players cut by Miami on Saturday. With 16 career starts under his belt, he could land on his feet with another club. 

Minnesota Vikings

19 of 33
    Players CutTE Colin Anderson, DT Christian Ballard, RB Joe Banyard, S Brandan Bishop, OG Travis Bond, WR Stephen Burton, DT Everett Dawkins, S Darris Eubanks, CB Bobby Felder, TE Chase Ford, OT Brandon Keith, DT Anthony McCloud, LB Tyrone McKenzie, OT Kevin Murphy, DT Spencer Nealy, DE D'Aundre Reed, WR Rodney Smith, WR Adam Thielen, RB Collins Ukwu

    Former quarterback and now wide receiver Joe Webb retained a spot on the Vikings' 53-man roster to enter the 2013 season. Webb has valuable athleticism and can be used in various ways. He finished the preseason with a team-high 10 receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown. 

New England Patriots

20 of 33
    Players CutTE Jake Ballard, FB Ben Bartholomew, DL Marcus Benard, DE Jermaine Cunningham, LB Ja'Gared Davis, S Kannoris Davis, TE Daniel Fells, DT Marcus Fortson, DE Justin Francis, DB Justin Green, WR Johnathan Haggerty, OL Josh Kline, OL Chris McDonald, LB Tyrone McKenzie, P Zoltan Mesko, DB Stephon Morris, OL Luke Patterson, DL Gilbert Peña, LB Mike Rivera, WR Quentin Sims, OL Matt Stankiewitch, LB Jeff Tarpinian, QB Tim Tebow, DL Scott Vallone, RB George Winn, RB Leon Washington, CB Marquice Cole

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 10:55 a.m. ET by Patrick Clarke

    Arguably the most popular fringe player looking to make an NFL roster this preseason, Tim Tebow has reportedly been released by the New England Patriots, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter via Twitter:

    Patriots released Tim Tebow.

    ---End of update---

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 10:30 a.m. ET by Patrick Clarke 

    New England has reportedly cut defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport via Twitter:

    #Patriots cut DE Jermaine Cunningham, former 2nd rounder. Never quite hit his stride, despite flashes (@ProFootballTalk 1st reported)

    — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 31, 2013

    ---End of update---

     

    LeGarrette Blount made the final roster, and after an impressive preseason he could be a big player for the Patriots this season. 

New Orleans Saints

21 of 33
    Players CutNT Isaako Aaitui, OLB Baraka Atkins, DB Chris Carr, QB Ryan Griffin, WR Saalim Hakim, TE Michael Higgins, S Jim Leonhard, FB Austin Johnson, OLB Rufus Johnson, OT Marcel Jones, CB Korey Lindsey, G Elliott Mealer, TE Keavon Milton, S Jerico Nelson, WR Preston Parker, DE Jay Richardson, WR Courtney Roby, CB Jumal Rolle, ILB Ray Shipman, OG Andrew Tiller, C Jeremiah Warren

    Andy Tanner beat out Preston Parker after battling for the final wide receiver spot, while veteran Jim Leonhard was cut.

New York Giants

    Marvin Austin—a second-round pick in 2011—was cut by the Giants. The team features a highly competitive defensive front, and Austin failed to distinguish himself within that group. 

New York Jets

23 of 33
    Players CutDB Royce Adams, DT Junior Aumavae, WR Michael Campbell, K Dan Carpenter, DT Lanier Coleman, C Erik Cook, LB Troy Davis, LB JoJo Dickson, CB Mike Edwards, DT Tevita Finau, DT Antonio Garay, WR Mohamed Massaquoi, RB Mossis Madu, QB Greg McElroy, SRontez Miles, WR Ben Obomanu, TE Chris Pantale, WR Zach Rogers, LB Jacquies Smith, T Jason Smith, T J.B. Shugarts, RB Kahlil Bell, LB Danny Lansanah

    Wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi was cut for the second time this preseason (the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him earlier in camp).

Oakland Raiders

    UPDATE: Sunday, September 1, at 3:17 p.m. by Jesse Reed

    The Raiders surprisingly cut rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson on Sunday afternoon, just months after spending a fourth-round pick to draft him, as noted by Pro Football Talk:

    Raiders are waiving fourth-round QB Tyler Wilson, per league source.

    — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 1, 2013

    It's a big blow to a team that needs every single draft pick to produce in order to climb out of the AFC West basement. General Manager Reggie McKenzie will undoubtedly be heavily scrutinized by the Raiders organization this season.

Philadelphia Eagles

25 of 33

    Casey Matthews (linebacker, brother of Clay) and Kurt Coleman (safety) survived the Eagles' final cuts and will likely see playing time on defense this year. 

Pittsburgh Steelers

    Players CutRB Alvester Alexander, DE Brian Arnfelt, LB Alan Baxter, WR Justin Brown, WR Reggie Dunn, RB Jonathan Dwyer, LB Terence Garvin, OL Mike Golic Jr., CB Terry Hawthorne, OG Chris Hubbard, OT Joe Long, C Joe Madsen, TE Jamie McCoy, LB Marshall McFadden, WR Kashif Moore, P Brian Moorman, TE Nathan Overbay, LB Brian Rolle, CB Devin Smith, NT Alameda Ta'amu, S Ross Ventrone, CB Josh Victorian

    Felix Jones is on his second roster this summer, but secured a spot with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

San Diego Chargers

27 of 33
    Players Cut OT Nick Becton, OLB Frank Beltre, CB Cornelius Brown, S Sean Cattouse, TE Ben Cotton, CB Marcus Cromartie, LB Phillip Dillard, CB Greg Gatson, DE Logan Harrell, LB Jerrell Harris, RB Michael Hill, CB Josh Johnson, LB Thomas Keiser, WR Robert Meachem, CB William Middleton, CDavid Molk, LB Dan Molls, OT Randy Richards, TE David Rolf, G Stephen Schilling, OT Max Starks, WR Luke Tasker, LB D.J. Smith

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 5:46 p.m. by Jesse Reed

    Robert Meachem didn't survive the final cuts, as reported by Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken. This comes just one year after the team signed Meachem as a free agent, meaning the team is still on the hook to pay him a big sum of money, as noted by Gehlken:

    The Chargers will pay Robert Meachem millions this season to play somewhere else.

    They notified the wide receiver Saturday afternoon they've "let him go," a source said, ending a high-priced union that proved a poor fit for both sides. The cut comes before the second season of a four-year contract that fully guaranteed Meachem $14 million, including a $7.5 million signing bonus and his $5 million base salary this year.

    ---End of update---

     

    UPDATE: Friday, August 30, at 9:22 p.m.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the Chargers had a competition between King Dunlap and Max Starks at left tackle, and that Starks lost, getting cut on Friday. The 31-year-old started all 16 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers last season, and don't be surprised if he ends up there again this offseason.

    ---End of update---

    Seneca Wallace will be cut by the San Francisco 49ers and will reportedly retire from football, according to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee (via NFL.com). Veteran Austin Collie was also released as the 49ers pared the roster down to 53.

    ---End of update---

     

    UPDATE: Saturday, August 31, at 10:15 a.m. ET by Patrick Clarke

    The Seahawks, one of the NFL's most loaded teams in the secondary, are reportedly set to cut veteran defensive back Antoine Winfield, according to CBS Sports' NFL insider Jason La Canfora via Twitter:

    Hearing that the Seahawks, so deep in the secondary, will be releasing CB Antoine Winfield.
