Charles Johnson WR CLE 12 Hrs
The Browns have reportedly waived Johnson, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The move frees up a roster spot for fellow wideout LaRon Byrd, who was claimed off waivers by the Browns on Sunday.
Damaris Johnson WR PHI 12 Hrs
Johnson was claimed off waivers by the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Johnson, who was a final cut by the Eagles, had 21 receptions for 270 yards in two seasons with Philadelphia after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Tulsa. He also has experience as a punt and kick returner.
Tom Savage QB HOU 13 Hrs
Savage's status as the third quarterback is unlikely to change after the news broke that Houston acquired quarterback Ryan Mallett from New England. The Texans traded for Mallett and then released Case Keenum, according to the Houston Chronicle reports.
Head coach Bill O'Brien did not like what he saw out of Case Keenum in preseason and moved quickly to replace him. Keenum had beat out Savage to be the top backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Mallett is likely to be the No. 2 quarterback while the Texans groom Savage as the future QB. Though it's not out of the question that Mallett changes that plan.
Michael Preston WR TEN 13 Hrs
The Titans will release Preston, the Tennessean reports.
Preston becomes the odd man out in the Titans' receiving corps, after the team claimed fellow wideout T.J. Graham off waivers from the Bills on Sunday.
Rex Grossman QB CLE 13 Hrs
The Browns have released Grossman, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Grossman was never in the Browns' starting conversation to begin with, and the team will thus roll with a QB duo of Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel.
Case Keenum QB HOU 13 Hrs4 Comments
Keenum was released by the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.
This is the proverbial "second shoe to drop" after the Texans traded for quarterback Ryan Mallett from New England. Keenum's problems in the pocket, which emerged last season when he was exposed to NFL defenses over a stretch of games, never got any better.
Eben Britton CHI 13 Hrs
Britton was waived by the Bears on Sunday, Michael Wright of ESPN.com reports.
Britton was felled by a hamstring injury for a large portion of training camp, and the team evidently wasn't confident with his health even after he suited up for Thursday's preseason finale. His wealth of NFL experience and ability to help out at guard or tackle should allow him to find a depth role with another team at some point in 2014.
Austen Lane DL CHI 13 Hrs
Lane was waived by the Bears on Saturday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Lane offered more NFL experience than most of the other options competing for a depth roles on the defensive line in training camp, but his limited impact in the preseason ultimately contributed to his demise. He could still latch on with another team at some point later this season.
Jeff Tuel QB BUF 13 Hrs
Tuel was added to the Bills' practice squad Sunday.
He was cut by the team Saturday after failing to earn the team's trust to be the top backup to EJ Manuel, but the Bills still think enough of him to keep him as a No. 3 option in the pecking order.
LaRon Byrd WR CLE 14 Hrs
They Browns have claimed Byrd on waivers from the Cowboys, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Byrd rounds out a Browns' wideout corps that currently rosters Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, Charles Johnson, Travis Benjamin and Taylor Gabriel. The composition of the unit is hardly set in stone, however, as the team looks for answers at the position in the wake of Josh Gordon's suspension being upheld.
