NFL Cut Day: List of Notable Players Cut Today

Charles James is hoping his performance this preseason will be enough to secure a spot on the Texans‘ final roster (Getty).

Today marks the official end of the NFL preseason. As of 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, all 32 NFL teams are required to cut their rosters down to the final 53 players.

Going from 75 to 53 won’t be easy, so expect to see some familiar names hit free agency today. Aside from aging veterans, today is a day where teams can bail on failed projects, like Washington and the RG3 saga. Every cut tells a story, and every loss for one team can be a gain for another.
