Joe Webb QB CAR 1 Day
Coach Ron Rivera confirmed Tuesday that he plans to keep Webb on the Panthers' 53-man roster as the team's third quarterback, the Associated Press reports.
With Cam Newton's health a bit uncertain after he suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in last Friday's preseason game, the Panthers will enter the regular season with two backups on hand as insurance. With Derek Anderson locked in as the Panthers' No. 2 quarterback, Webb could be let go by the team once Newton is deemed completely healthy.
David Gilreath WR SEA 1 Day
Gilreath (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.
The Seahawks were carrying double-digit receivers through most of training camp, and with Gilreath ranking near the bottom of that list, he had little chance of making the 53-man roster.
Brady Quinn QB MIA 1 Day5 Comments
Quinn was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Quinn was brought of a brief retirement to battle with Matt Moore for the top backup job behind Ryan Tannehill, but his struggles in training camp practices ultimately sealed his fate. The former first-round draft choice may elect to call it a career for good this time.
Bacarri Rambo DB WAS 1 Day
Rambo is in line to start the first two games of the regular season following Brandon Meriweather's two-game suspension, Liz Clarke of the Washington Post reports.
Rambo didn't last long as a starting safety for the Redskins as a rookie last season, proving to be too much of a liability as a tackler. He's made strides during his second training camp with Washington, but may not produce much useful IDP production while he fills in for Meriweather.
Dimitri Patterson DB NYJ 1 Day
The Jets suspended Patterson for the remainder of the preseason, NFL.com's Chris Wesseling reports.
The team imposed the suspension after Patterson failed to show up for the team's preseason game last Friday due to his unhappiness with his place on the Jets' depth chart. His suspension will be lifted Sept. 1, but there's still a chance the Jets could cut him if they don't believe he's committed to the team.
Brian Quick WR STL 1 Day
Quick has had a solid preseason, but will have to adjust to life without Sam Bradford, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Quick had developed some nice chemistry with Bradford in camp and preseason, but now will have to try to do the same with Shaun Hill after Bradford's injury. Bradford and Hill have relatively similar skill sets, so Quick shouldn't lose too much value. That being said, Quick only caught 29 passes for 458 yards last season and needs to step up his game considerably before warranting fantasy attention.
Isaiah Frey DB CHI 1 Day
Frey (hamstring) was waived by the Bears on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.
Frey would have been no better than the Bears' sixth cornerback even had he been healthy throughout training camp, so cutting him was an easy decision for the team after he battled a hamstring injury over the last couple of weeks. He served as the team's primary nickel back last season, accumulating 47 tackles while suiting up in 16 games. At 23 years old, he's still young enough to warrant a look from another team.
Troy Niklas TE ARI 1 Day
Niklas (hand) received his first NFL action Sunday against the Bengals, gathering in one of two targets for minus-three yards.
According to the Cardinals' official site, Niklas was finally free of any cast on his right hand, which suffered a fracture during OTAs. His ability to catch and block was hindered in the meantime, but after his selection in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, there's little doubt that he'll find himself on the 53-man roster to begin the season. However, due to his delay in grasping the offense, the rookie may not usurp John Carlson or Rob Housler for snaps at tight end any time soon.
Matt Johnson DB DAL 1 Day
Johnson (hamstring) was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.
The oft-injured safety succumbed to a hamstring sprain in late July that kept him off the field for much of training camp, prompting the club to cut ties. He could still be stashed on injured reserve by the club if he passes through waivers unclaimed, as expected.
DeVonte Holloman LB DAL 1 Day
Holloman (neck) was waived by the Cowboys on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.
The Cowboys will likely try to reach an injury settlement with Holloman, whose career is probably over after he suffered a serious neck injury in the preseason. Prior to going down, Holloman appeared to be in line to replace the injured Sean Lee as a starter at outside linebacker.
