Some teams I haven’t see cuts for yet include the 49rs, the Bills, the Pats and the Seahawks, though there are many teams still out there to eject people. If you hear of someone I missed or see someone you know wasn’t cut, let me know (email@example.com) and I will double check and correct if need be.
Will throw out another post tonight with more cuts if I can. Keep track of these guys so you can cut off the Hail Mary picks from late in your draft and make room on your roster. A few names like Musa Smith (Jets) are a minor surprise but most won’t even be ones you recognize.
