NFC West teams will be releasing or otherwise removing from their rosters players before training camps open in late July.

Download full 26-column rosters here.

A few quick roster-related notes for NFC West teams:
Arizona: Fourth-oldest team in the league overall, but projected starters are 17th-oldest (offense) and 18th-oldest (defense); league-most three receivers with Pro Bowl experience, counting special-teamer Sean Morey; division-high six tight ends on the roster, but have kept more than three only once on last five opening-day rosters.

San Francisco: Division-high 10 players with Pro Bowl experience, counting the injured Walt Harris; 12 starters drafted among the top 50 overall choices, most in the division; five defensive backs drafted by other teams, third-most in NFL; division-high eight starters drafted in first round, division-low one starter drafted in third round.

St. Louis: Three players with Pro Bowl experience, tied for fewest in the NFL; carrying 12 receivers, one off the league high, reflecting uncertainty at the position; projected starting front seven averages division-low 264 pounds with James Laurinaitis at middle linebacker and Adam Carriker's listed weight of 296 pounds (reported as 310 pounds at times previously).

Seattle: League-low 12 defensive backs; the Seahawks signed fullback Dan Curran after he practiced on a tryout basis; 34 defensive players, fewest in the league; sixth-oldest offensive starters in the league; five wide receivers drafted by other teams, most in the NFL; front seven averages a division-leading 274 pounds, based on listed weights.
Note: Go ahead and add former Falcons tackle Renardo Foster to the Rams' roster. The team claimed him off waivers, successfully.
