Titans released G/T Byron Stingily.
Stingily has been with the Titans since 2011, but never progressed past deep reserve status. He could be brought back if/when the Titans need a lineman.
Patriots released CB Robert McClain.
McClain started at slot corner in the first preseason game but lost his job to Tarell Brown. McClain struggled in Atlanta last season, but has put some good things on tape in his career. He should get another shot.
Lions released TE Joseph Fauria.
Fauria collected seven touchdowns as a rookie but disappeared during his sophomore campaign in 2014 (six catches for 74 yards). His roster spot was in jeopardy as soon as the Lions traded for Tim Wright at the end of August. Fauria caught three passes for 24 yards during the preseason.
Eagles waived CB Jaylen Watkins.
The Eagles were trying to trade the 2014 fourth-rounder out of Florida but could not find any takers. Watkins struggled as a slot corner this preseason, but his draft pedigree will earn him another shot.
Giants waived/injured WR Corey Washington.
Initial reports had Washington as merely waived. He missed the preseason finale with a shoulder injury. He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. Washington stuck with the Giants in 2014 after turning in a mammoth preseason, but couldn't match the feat this summer, catching just three passes for 25 yards in three games. Washington still has some upside, but there's no real reason to keep him around in Dynasty leagues.
Lions waived QB Kellen Moore.
Moore has been with the Lions since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He had a solid summer, but was never going to overcome his physical limitations. Moore is undersized, and lacks arm strength. Dan Orlovsky is Matthew Stafford's backup.
The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported "there's a growing sense" Geno Smith could return sooner than expected.
That sense grew stronger after the Jets cut Matt Flynn and Josh Johnson on Saturday, leaving just rookie Bryce Petty behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith is unlikely to return to a starting job, but he could be fit enough for backup duty in the first month of the season.
Cowboys waived QB Dustin Vaughan.
A second-year UDFA out of West Texas A&M, Vaughan looked sharp in the 2014 preseason and like a potential long-term backup. He disappointed this August, however, and was outplayed by undrafted rookie Jameill Showers, who offers more athleticism. Showers is the current No. 3 behind Tony Romo and Brandon Weeden, although Showers' 53-man roster spot is far from assured.
