Over the next few hours, about 700 men will have received official word that they are unemployed.
The deadline to cut NFL rosters down to 53 players is here, more specifically, here at 1 p.m. Saturday. There are a lot of talented players who will be cut, and some that may benefit other teams, casualties of the logjam.
Here’s the best of them:
Wide receiver: Kenbrell Thompkins (Oakland, signed to New England’s practice squad)
Tight end: Brian Leonhardt (Oakland)
Offensive tackle: Jake Rodgers (Atlanta)
Safety: Sanders Commings (Kansas City)
This list will be updated as new information becomes available
