NFL Cuts Show How Hard It Is To Make A 53-Man Roster

This following list of players released on Tuesday by NFL teams is simply meant as a lesson as to how difficult it is to land on a 53-man roster to start a season. Injuries and other factors can all help limit a player’s development and of course just getting released one time doesn’t mean a player can’t come back at a later time and stick on a different roster for a different team.

All of these players below, however, could be called household names when they were in high school. They set state records, they were named All-Americans, they were heavily recruited. Congratulations to those who have earned spots on final 53-man rosters. We are listing all of the player names that caught our attention as of Wednesday morning who have been released and going through all of the reported releases as mentioned on All listed in alpha order with team they were with.
