FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The tone of Atlanta Falcons strong safety William Moore's voice lowered a notch as he recalled last year's second meeting with rival New Orleans, a game won 17-13 by the Saints.

During that contest, Moore found himself matched with Saints game-changing tight end Jimmy Graham near the sideline. Graham ran his route outside then quickly broke back inside to get down the field for a 44-yard touchdown reception from Drew Brees.

"When you become too physical on a play that they run all game, they wait for that right moment for you to be physical again and they give you the double move,'' Moore said Monday. "It's called game-planning.

John David Mercer/USA TODAY SportsSaints tight end Jimmy Graham had a pair of scores in two games last season against Atlanta.
"For me individually, I had nightmares about that play. I wish I could take it back. But, you know, as a player, if you want to become elite, you've got to be able to have a short-term memory. I learned from that play and I got better off that play.''

Collectively, the Falcons have to find a way to be better at defending arguably the best tight end in the game as the Saints come to town Sunday. Graham had five catches for 100 yards and a touchdown in last year's game at the Georgia Dome. In New Orleans' two wins against Atlanta last season, Graham had nine catches for 145 yards and two scores. He has 500 career receiving yards and seven touchdowns against the Falcons through four NFL seasons.

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Graham, a former basketball player in college, presents matchup nightmares because of his size, speed and leaping ability.

"It comes down to executing your play and the stuff you've got going on,'' Moore said of containing Graham. "You can't too much worry about Jimmy Graham. He's explosive. He does things other tight ends don't do. But at the same time, you worry about what you've got to do. Your technique should allow you to put you over an edge over what he's got going, if you execute.''

It will be interesting to see what type of coverages defensive coordinator Mike Nolan utilizes against Graham, particularly with having to contend with talented receivers such as Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and rookie Brandin Cooks. No one on the Falcons roster is truly capable of matching up with Graham, one on one, although promising rookie linebacker Prince Shembo could be an intriguing option for that role in time.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant didn't shy away from going head to head with Graham.

"Just how they line up, I'm definitely going to encounter him,'' Trufant said. "I'm going to just be physical, just like any other matchup. I'm going to believe in what I'm doing and have confidence to go compete.

"I don't put nobody on a serious pedestal like that. Everybody breathes the same air. We all compete. He's a great player. We just have to bring it to him, pretty much.''

One aspect all the Falcons defenders have to be conscious of when it comes to defending Graham is the league's emphasis on defensive holding and illegal contact.

"You can't think about it too much because then it will slow you down and you'll end up giving up a big play,'' Trufant said. "Obviously, you're aware of it. But we'll see. ... We play the game. We can't focus on how they're calling it too much.''
TAMPA, Fla. – The new kicker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a believer -- in himself.

Murray
While just about everyone assumed incumbent Connor Barth would keep his job, Patrick Murray had a different vision.

"I came in here and I believed I was going to be the starter," Murray said. "I believe if you come in thinking a different way it’s just not going to happen. Credit to Connor. He pushed me every single day. He’s a great kicker and I know he’s going to land somewhere really soon."

But it’s Murray, who came into the league as an undrafted free agent, that ended up winning Tampa Bay’s kicking job. Barth didn’t have a bad preseason, but Murray had an excellent one.

"The fact that I came in from day one that I was going to win the job and nobody was going to beat me no matter what they threw at me," Murray said. "Coach [Lovie Smith] put me in some difficult situations and I excelled at them and, thankfully, I’m a part of this organization."

Murray said his positive attitude and work ethic come from his father, Aidan.

"To be a kicker in this league, you have to have a mental edge," Murray said. "You have to be mentally tough and that comes from my father. He’s a hard-working man from Northern Ireland. We grew up pretty tough ourselves. He wasn’t easy on us, that’s for sure. That helps and it’s going to help me throughout my career."
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was back throwing on Monday, his first participation in a full practice since suffering fractured ribs during an Aug. 22 exhibition game at New England.

Newton
Newton
Newton said last Wednesday he had no doubt he would start in Sunday's opener at Tampa Bay, and nothing he did early in practice would dispute that.

The first pick of the 2011 draft, who hasn't missed a start at Carolina, showed no limitation in his throwing motion. He ran between drills, something he didn't do all of last week, and had a full range of motion during stretching.

Newton was wearing a larger flak jacket than the one he was wearing when New England linebacker Jamie Collins stepped on the back of Carolina's franchise quarterback at the end of a 7-yard run to cause the fracture.

He did not appear hindered by that.

Also back at practice after sitting out the exhibition finale at Pittsburgh were defensive ends Charles Johnson (hamstring) and Greg Hardy, (shoulder) and right guard Trai Turner (groin).

Turner started the first two preseason games before suffering the injury. The team released Chris Scott, who started the last two preseason games, on Saturday.

Either Turner or Fernando Velasco, signed in July, is expected to start against Tampa.

Backup quarterback Derek Anderson, who suffered a bruised hand against the Steelers, showed no ill effects from the injury.

Saints announce practice squad

The New Orleans Saints announced their 10-member practice squad Monday. They signed safety Pierre Warren, cornerbacks Trevin Wade and Terrence Frederick, linebacker Todd Davis, defensive tackle Lawrence Virgil, receivers Brandon Coleman and Seantavius Jones, tight end Nic Jacobs, offensive tackle Tavon Rooks and guard Antoine McClain.

Of that group, McClain is the only one who wasn’t with the Saints in training camp. The 6-foot-5, 336-pounder was released by the Buffalo Bills over the weekend. He also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens and Oakland Raiders after joining the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2012.

The Saints are expected to hold a bonus practice Monday before returning to their usual weekly routine, with players off on Tuesday. Their first media access and injury report will be Wednesday.
Come Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons' coaching staff will get a true measure of the offseason upgrades up front on both sides of the ball.

Speaking strictly from an offensive perspective, offensive line coach Mike Tice certainly doesn't expect his guys to back down against the NFC South favorite New Orleans Saints. In other words, you won't see a repeat of last season's Week 1 matchup, when a sliding Matt Ryan was hit by Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro without any of the Falcons' linemen really getting in Vaccaro's face afterward.

Asamoah
Holmes
Evidence of the renewed toughness was displayed in the third preseason game against Tennessee, when a number of linemen -- most notably center Joe Hawley and tackles Lamar Holmes and Ryan Schraeder -- ran to Ryan's defense after Ryan took a finger to the face mask during a confrontation with Titans linebacker Zach Brown.

"The one thing they won't be, they won't be punked over by anybody," Tice said of his line. "That's encouraging."

Whether or not the offensive line keeps Ryan upright is another story. Last season, the Falcons quarterback was sacked eight times and was hit 16 times in two losses to the Saints. For the season, Ryan was pressured on a league-high 204 of his dropbacks, contributing to him being sacked a career-high 44 times.

This preseason, Ryan was sacked twice while playing 79 snaps behind a rebuilt offensive line that now includes rookie first-round pick Jake Matthews at left tackle and veteran Jon Asamoah at right guard to go with holdovers Hawley, Holmes and left guard Justin Blalock.

Although the Falcons still have significant strides to make with their run blocking, Tice was extremely pleased with the pass protection during the preseason.

"I'd lose a lot of sleep if we were getting our ass kicked in pass protection, but we're not," Tice said. "We're not going to be a run-first team, so we'll get the runs cleaned up. We've just got to keep protecting that quarterback."

The Saints will pose quite a challenge for Matthews and Holmes off the edges with Cameron Jordan and Junior Galette, a duo that combined for 24.5 sacks last season. But what really hurt the Falcons in the last meeting between the teams was the inside pressure from Akiem Hicks, who destroyed then-Falcons right guard Garrett Reynolds.

Hicks won't be able to push around Asamoah, unless a minor groin injury resurfaces and affects Asamoah's play. The backup at right guard is Gabe Carimi, who had a solid preseason before suffering an ankle injury but appears to be fully recovered now.

Tice gave his general thoughts on the challenge posed by the Saints' front.

"I can tell you this," Tice started, "I know all their players are pretty good."

Who's returning for the Bucs?

TAMPA, Fla. – When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left Solomon Patton off their 53-man roster, they seemingly left the kickoff and punt-return jobs wide open.

Patton handled the duties through much of the preseason and had fared pretty well. The common assumption was that Patton would be returning punts and kickoffs in the regular season.

Patton now is stashed on the practice squad. But the Bucs didn’t leave him off the 53-man roster without a plan in place. It just might be a little difficult to see that plan because no one else stood out on returns in camp or the preseason.

But it appears as if the Bucs are ready to use backup running back Bobby Rainey as their punt returner. Rainey caught some punts in the preseason and really is the only option on the current roster.

Rainey also could end up handling kickoff returns. But there at least are some other options there. Backup running back Mike James and reserve receiver Chris Owusu worked as kickoff returners in training camp and could be options.
A closer look at the 53-man roster for the Carolina Panthers as they prepare for Sunday's opener at Tampa Bay:

Offense

Quarterbacks (3) -- Cam Newton, Derek Anderson, Joe Webb
  • Newton's offseason ankle surgery opened the door for Webb to join the team and Newton's fractured rib two weeks ago made it a necessity to keep Webb on the roster. Don't get me wrong, Webb played well enough in the preseason to earn a spot. But if Newton were perfectly healthy, the former UAB quarterback wouldn't be here.
Running backs (4) -- DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert, Fozzy Whittaker
  • Whittaker is the biggest surprise in that he wasn't on the roster when training camp opened. But he led the team in rushing during the preseason and gives the team another punishing runner who sets the tone for this ball-control offense.
Wide Receivers (5) --Kelvin Benjamin, Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant, Brenton Bersin, Philly Jones
  • There were major questions about who Newton would throw to after Steve Smith was released in March and Carolina's next three wide receivers signed with other teams. Benjamin, the team's first-round draft pick out of Florida State, answered many of those questions with a strong preseason. Bersin wasn't a player many expect to be here in March over Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt, but he's proven to be a solid route runner and receiver. Jones made the team primarily because of his kick-return skills. Don't be surprised to see Carolina add another player here.
Tight ends (4) -- Greg Olsen, Ed Dickson, Brandon Williams, Richie Brockel
  • The second-deepest position on the team behind the defensive line. The decision to reach an injury settlement with Mike McNeil had to be tough because he was signed to a two-year deal in free agency to be the blocking tight end. The emergence of Williams made him expendable.
Offensive linemen (10) -- Ryan Kalil, Byron Bell, Nate Chandler, Amini Silatolu, Trai Turner, Garry Williams, Fernando Velasco, Brian Folkerts, Andrew Norwell, David Foucault
  • The decision to cut guard Chris Scott, who had eight starts last season, was the most intriguing. But it says a lot about what the Panthers think of Norwell and the flexibility of Velasco, who can play center and guard. Keeping Foucault on the 53-man roster was probably more out of fear he wouldn't clear waivers so the team could put him on the practice squad.
Defense

Ends (5) -- Greg Hardy, Charles Johnson, Mario Addison, Kony Ealy, Wes Horton
  • Plenty of talent to go around here. That second-round draft pick Ealy is third on the depth chart says all you need to know. And when Frank Alexander returns from a four-game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy, this position will get stronger.
Tackles (4) -- Star Lotulelei, Colin Cole, Kawann Short, Dwan Edwards
  • The same foursome that helped establish Carolina as the league's second-ranked defense a year ago. That ends Hardy and Ealy can move over and play tackle as well once again gives the Panthers one of the league's best rotations up front.
Linebackers (6) -- Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Chase Blackburn, A.J. Klein, Jason Williams, Ben Jacobs
  • No real surprises here. The decision to release D.J. Smith wasn't easy, but he was re-signed to the practice squad.
Cornerbacks (5) -- Antoine Cason, Melvin White, Charles Godfrey, Josh Norman, Bene' Benwikere
  • There simply wasn't room for Josh Thomas, who began last season as one of the top four corners. The starters are set with Cason and White, and Godfrey and Benwikere sharing the nickel spot that Captain Munnerlyn had last season.
Safeties (4) -- Roman Harper, Thomas DeCoud, Colin Jones, Tre Boston
  • The Panthers showed what they thought of Boston, their fourth-round pick, by leaving him on the roster ahead of Robert Lester, even though Boston missed most of the preseason recovering from sports hernia surgery. Fortunately, a new rule allowed Carolina to put Lester on the practice squad.
Specialists (3) -- Place-kicker Graham Gano, punter Brad Nortman, deep snapper J.J. Jansen
  • There never was a doubt these three would be here.
TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a series of roster moves Sunday, including the addition of an offensive lineman and six players signed to the practice squad.

The Bucs claimed offensive lineman Garrett Gilkey off waivers from the Cleveland Browns. Gilkey appeared in six games with one start for the Browns last season. To make room for Gilkey, the Bucs waived offensive lineman Josh Allen.

The Bucs also started filling out their practice squad with some familiar faces. Tight end Cameron Brate, running back Jeff Demps, quarterback Mike Kafka, linebacker Brandon Magee, defensive tackle Matthew Masifilo and wide receiver Solomon Patton were signed to the practice squad. All six of those players were with the Bucs in the preseason.

The Bucs still have four more spots to fill on the practice squad.
The Atlanta Falcons announced the signing of eight players to the practice squad on Sunday.

The group includes rookie cornerback Ricardo Allen, a fifth-round draft pick who was unable to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. The other seven include defensive tackle Travian Robertson, offensive guard Harland Gunn, outside linebacker Jacques Smith, safety Sean Baker, offensive tackle Terren Jones, wide receiver Bernard Reedy and running back Jerome Smith.

The NFL expanded the practice-roster limit to 10 this season.

The Falcons also confirmed the addition of linebacker Nate Stupar via waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Stupar replaced veteran linebacker Tim Dobbins on the 53-man roster after Dobbins was released Sunday.
Most significant move: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took a leap of faith when they released kicker Connor Barth and decided to go with Patrick Murray. Barth was a proven veteran. Murray is an unknown. But Murray had an excellent preseason to win the job. Barth didn’t look quite as sharp and didn’t seem to have as much distance as he did before missing all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon. Barth also was scheduled to make more than $3 million this season. Murray will only cost the team $420,000.

Not so fast: A lot of people were under the assumption running back Jeff Demps would make the roster because the Bucs were so infatuated with his speed. But Demps was released Saturday. The former Olympic sprinter was given every opportunity as a running back and a return man, but he never was able to make things happen in space. Still, Demps has rare speed and the Bucs likely will try to get him signed to the practice squad, where he might be able to develop into something.

What’s next: The Bucs likely aren’t done with roster moves. They’re likely to bring in some players who were released elsewhere. Depth at linebacker, safety and on the offensive line still could be priorities.

Bucs’ cuts: Released WR Solomon Patton, RB Jeff Demps, QB Mike Kafka, DT Matthew Masifilo, DT Ronald Talley, K Connor Barth, TE Cameron Brate, DE Larry English, G Jamon Meredith, DB Marc Anthony, LB Nate Askew, T Edawn Coughman, CB Kip Edwards, DE T.J. Fatinikun, CB Anthony Gaitor, LB Ka'Lial Glaud, CB Keith Lewis, LB Brandon Magee, OL Andrew Miller, FB Lonnie Pryor, DL Ronald Talley, S Major Wright and OL Jeremiah Warren.
Once again, the New Orleans Saints lived up to their reputation as a team that doesn’t care where you came from. They kept two undrafted rookies on the 53-man roster -- outside linebacker Kasim Edebali and cornerback Brian Dixon.

Last year, the Saints wound up with a total of seven undrafted rookies on their roster. And their recent history is littered with undrafted success stories, like running backs Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory and Khiry Robinson and outside linebacker Junior Galette.

Meanwhile, the Saints decided to cut one of their draft picks -- offensive tackle Tavon Rooks, who was drafted in the sixth round.

Rooks and many other youngsters who didn’t make the cut should be able to stick on the Saints’ practice squad, as well. Thanks to a new NFL rule, teams can now keep 10 players on the practice squad -- including two with at least two years of NFL experience. Teams can begin signing their practice squad once players clear waivers Sunday.

Among some of the other likely candidates to stick on the practice squad are safety Pierre Warren, cornerbacks Trevin Wade and Terrence Frederick, linebacker Todd Davis, receivers Brandon Coleman, Charles Hawkins and Seantavious Jones, guard Marcel Jones, tight end Nic Jacobs, running back Derrick Strozier and center Matt Armstrong.
Most significant move: Releasing cornerback Champ Bailey was the New Orleans Saints' biggest bombshell. But it ultimately shouldn't come as a shock. Bailey wasn't able to beat out fellow veteran Patrick Robinson for the No. 2 cornerback job. And for Bailey, it was probably a “starting job or bust” situation since he doesn't play special teams, and since the Saints are happy with their nickel/dime guys in safety Rafael Bush and cornerback Corey White. ... The big question mark is whether Robinson is the right choice. He had a nice camp at times, and the speedy athlete has shown as much big-play ability as anyone in the Saints' secondary during his turbulent five-year career. But Robinson has also battled injuries and inconsistency. If he can provide stability, New Orleans' secondary should he a huge strength.

Super loss: By cutting receiver Robert Meachem, the Saints now have only seven players remaining from their 2009 Super Bowl roster. They also parted ways with longtime veterans Lance Moore, Will Smith, Jonathan Vilma, Jabari Greer and Roman Harper this year. But the writing was on the wall for Meachem when younger receiver Joe Morgan came back so strong from a knee injury. The two of them have a similar skill set as standout blockers and deep threats. I expect Marques Colston, Kenny Stills, Brandin Cooks and Joe Morgan to be the Saints' four active receivers when everyone is healthy. And while Stills nurses a quad injury that could keep him out in Week 1, the Saints still have promising young receiver Nick Toon available.

What's next: The Saints still have one glaring need since they went with "none of the above" in their kicker competition. Neither Shayne Graham nor Derek Dimke was consistent enough to lock down the job. I'm perfectly fine with that, especially when you consider the experienced veterans who are now available (Ryan Succop, Alex Henery, Connor Barth, Jay Feely, Rob Bironas, plus a number of young guys who had solid camps elsewhere). The question, however, is whether the Saints can develop trust in a new guy quickly enough. The Saints have had an itchy trigger finger regarding kickers over the years. So what happens if the guy they choose misses once or twice in September? ... To make room for the next kicker, the Saints will likely place either fullback Erik Lorig or linebacker Khairi Fortt on injured reserve -- possibly with a designation to return.

Saints moves: Terminated contracts of CB Champ Bailey, OLB Keyunta Dawson, K Shayne Graham, FB Greg Jones, WR Robert Meachem, OT Thomas Welch. Waived C Matt Armstrong, CB Derrius Brooks, WR Brandon Coleman, ILB Todd Davis, K Derek Dimke, CB Terrence Frederick, WR Charles Hawkins, TE Nic Jacobs, G Marcel Jones, WR Seantavious Jones, OT Tavon Rooks, RB Derrick Strozier, NT Lawrence Virgil, CB Trevin Wade, S Pierre Warren, T/G Jason Weaver.
One of the interesting aspects to emerge from the Atlanta Falcons' trimming of the roster to 53 was how many quarterbacks were left in the mix.

It turned out to be three.

Along with starter Matt Ryan, both T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree were part of the 53-man roster established on Saturday. Yates and Renfree battled for the backup role this preseason, and coach Mike Smith refused to declare a winner.

The Falcons obviously felt it would have been too risky to waive Renfree with hopes of adding him to the practice squad. Renfree seemed to have the edge for the backup role until Yates caught fire in the final exhibition game at Jacksonville. Yates completed 15 of 20 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' 24-14 win.

Yates seems likely to get the first opportunity if something happens to Ryan, just based on veteran experience. He has a playoff win under his belt while in Houston and has played in 13 regular-season games with five starts.

The Falcons traded linebacker Akeem Dent to the Texans in exchange for Yates.

Renfree, a seventh-round draft pick out of Duke in 2013, spent last season on injured reserve.

Last year, the Falcons went with just two quarterbacks in Ryan and Dominique Davis, who was released. Davis played in just one game in 2013.
Most significant move: This has to be the release of guard Chris Scott. He started eight games last season and started the last two preseason games at right guard with rookie Trai Turner nursing a groin injury. This sends a message that Turner is ready to start the opener at Tampa Bay. Conditioning has been an issue for Scott, but coach Ron Rivera told me on Wednesday that Scott had worked himself into a good position when I asked if he could win a starting job. The release shows how much the Panthers like guard Andrew Norwell and the confidence they have in Fernando Velasco to play center and guard.

Not King for this day: Wide receiver Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt were mentioned by general manager Dave Gettleman as young players they'd like to get a good look at when they released Steve Smith. McNutt didn't make the first cut and now King, who at one point appeared to be fourth or fifth on the depth chart, is gone.

No pick for Barner: The Philadelphia Eagles waived injured running back Kenjon Barner, meaning Carolina won't get the conditional seventh-round pick they negotiated in the trade. Barner had to make the team's 46-man active list for at least the first four games for the Panthers to get the pick.

Alexander on reserve/suspended: DE Frank Alexander, suspended for the first four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, was placed on the reserve/suspended list. He is expected to return to the 53-man roster (depth charts will be updated shortly) after the Week 4 game at Baltimore.

What's next: Look for Gettleman to keep a close eye on the waiver wire for a wide receiver/return specialist. As much as Rivera says he likes undrafted rookie wideout Philly Brown returning punts, the drops have to make him nervous. There are quite a few interesting players available, including Jets 2012 second-round pick Stephen Hill.

Panthers moves: Cut -- LB Denicos Allen, CB Carrington Byndom, G Derek Dennis, CB James Dockery, LB Adarius Glanton, WR Tavarres King, S Robert Lester, WR Marcus Lucas, OT Andrew McDonald, S Tom Nelson, DT Drake Nevis, RB Darrin Reaves, DT Micanor Regis, LB D.J. Smith, CB Josh Thomas, DT Casey Walker, FB Michael Zordich, OG Chris Scott. Waived/injured -- T Kevin Hughes. Waived/injured settlement -- TE Mike McNeil, S Anderson Russell. Reserve/suspended -- DE Frank Alexander.
Most significant move: From a draft perspective, the biggest surprise was the Falcons cutting ties with fifth-round pick Ricardo Allen out of Purdue. The rookie cornerback didn't do much during the preseason, but you figured the Falcons would keep him around regardless. Obviously the coaches felt they needed more veteran experience going into the season, which is why Josh Wilson and Javier Arenas will back up starters Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford and likely top nickel Robert McClain. Allen's status means both of the team's fifth-round picks from this season won't be on the 53-man roster. The other, linebacker Marquis Spruill, was placed on injured reserve after ACL surgery.

Wild card: Waiving defensive tackle Travian Robertson was somewhat surprising, considering how well he played during training camp. The Falcons no doubt are counting on second-round pick Ra'Shede Hageman to be more consistent along the defensive line during the regular season after an up-and-down start. They also must feel as if veteran Corey Peters won't have any setbacks coming off last year's Achilles' tear, although Peters did not play during the preseason. Also, the Falcons kept rookie center James Stone and released offensive tackle Terren Jones although it seemed like having more depth at tackle was a more pressing need. Some would argue that guard Harland Gunn also deserved to be kept ahead of Stone.

What’s next: The Falcons might have to consider putting in waiver claims if they feel it could help upgrade the roster. The two positions that stand out are at pass-rusher and inside linebacker. The Falcons cut ties with two inside linebackers in Pat Angerer and rookie seventh-round pick Yawin Smallwood. Offensive tackle and safety might also be a need. Of course, the Falcons have to formulate their practice squad, with guys such as Allen, rookie receiver Bernard Reedy, and rookie outside linebacker Jacques Smith as prime candidates. Reedy was a favorite to stick on the roster, but the Falcons obviously valued the special-teams ability of veteran receivers Eric Weems and Courtney Roby.

Falcons moves: Waived: WR Jeremy Ebert, WR Bernard Reedy, OT Terren Jones, OG Harland Gunn, S Sean Baker, TE Mickey Shuler, CB Ricardo Allen, OLB Jacques Smith, DT Travian Robertson; DE Nose Eguae, FB Maurice Hagens, CB Jordan Mabin, WR Freddie Martino, S Kimario McFadden, TE Jacob Pedersen, OL Adam Replogle, DT Donte Rumph, LB Yawin Smallwood; Released: LB Pat Angerer, OL Pat McQuistan, RB Josh Vaughan; Waived/injured WR Geraldo Boldewijn (hamstring).
