Waiver claims tend to fly left and right after the 53-man roster reductions. Among the implications for NFC West teams now that the initial 24-hour waiver period has ended:
- The Seahawks released Kyle Williams after claiming another tackle, Brandon Frye, off waivers from the Dolphins. Frye, 26, was active for seven games last season. This is probably just a case of Seattle attempting to upgrade depth on the fringes of the roster.
- Former Seahawks cornerback Kevin Hobbs landed in Detroit after the Lions claimed him. The Browns claimed another Seahawks castoff, cornerback Marquis Floyd.
- The Browns also claimed former Rams offensive lineman Phil Trautwein.
- The Jets filed claims for two tight ends, including 49ers draft choice Bear Pascoe. They had a higher priority claim for former Titans tight end Matthew Mulligan, however. Pascoe became a free agent once the claim for Mulligan succeeded.
