Cowboys waived RB Ben Malena.
A second-year undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M, Malena had a nice preseason, but couldn't crack the Cowboys' sorry running back corps. It's a sign he doesn't have much of an NFL future, though perhaps he'll land on the practice squad.
Eagles waived CB Randall Evans.
The 196th overall pick in May's draft, Evans was unable to crack a weak Eagles cornerback corps, which probably isn't a great sign for his prospects.
Eagles released S Chris Prosinski.
Prosinski lost out to Ed Reynolds for the Eagles' No. 3 safety job.
Bills waived QB Matt Simms.
Simms never had a legitimate chance to make the team and he solidified his release with a god-awful backwards pass/fumble in the preseason finale.
Cardinals released DE Matt Shaughnessy.
The Cardinals paid Shaughnessy a $500,000 bonus in March but are avoiding his $1.45 million base salary. Shaughnessy plays above-average run defense.
Texans waived WR Damaris Johnson and released DT Brandon Deaderick.
Johnson is a diminutive occasional deep threat and return specialist.
Texans waived RB Kenny Hilliard.
Hilliard was the 235th pick in May's draft. He wasn't able to leap any of Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes, or Chris Polk on the depth chart but could resurface on the practice squad. Hilliard averaged just 2.3 YPC on 48 preseason totes.
Texans waived NT Louis Nix.
Nix was the 83rd overall pick in last year's draft. He never played a down for the Texans after missing his entire rookie season with a wrist injury. The Texans then signed Vince Wilfork this offseason and drafted NT Christian Covington.
