NFL roster cuts 2018: Tracking notable player cuts, trades, rumors around the league

NFL teams start to make cuts to reach 53-man roster limit

The day after the fourth preseason game marks one of the busiest periods on the NFL calendar. Between the end of the final preseason game and 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, NFL teams will cut more than 1,000 players as the 32 teams trim their rosters from 90 to 53 players.

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has already confirmed that the team will be keeping a close eye on the waiver wire and could well make use of their high priority. Likewise, they will be watching to see which veteran players are cut as well, as they look to make low-cost signings which could upgrade perceived weaknesses on their roster.

We will be keeping an eye on cuts as they are announced around the league, and keep you updated as players who could catch the Giants’ eye are released. A few teams began making cuts Friday. The vast majority will come Saturday.

Saturday roster moves

The Buffalo Bills he released WR Corey Coleman after acquiring him from the Cleveland Browns. Coleman has considerable athleticism and big-play ability, but hasn't translated to performance on the field.

Well, the day starts with a bang as the Oakland Raiders will reportedly part with Khalil Mack. Sorry, Giants fans. Mack to the Giants was never realistic. The Giants just don’t have the draft capital. For what it’s worth, here is at least part of what the Chicago Bears are giving up.

Notable Friday cuts

Just in case the Giants might think Riley Dixon isn’t their answer at punter, Shane Lechler is now available.

Braxton Miller transitioned to wide receiver after a shoulder injury cut his quarterback career short at Ohio State. He is an exceptional athlete who is dangerous with the ball in his hands, but still learning the receiver position.

Kevin Minter was drafted in the second round of the 2013 draft by the Arizona, and played linebacker for two years for James Bettcher.

Antonio Garcia was a third-round pick by the New England Patriots a couple of years ago. Dimitri Flowers is a rookie H-Back who showed intriguing skills last season at Oklahoma.
