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.
9 News Denver's Mike Klis reported RB Montee Ball is not among the Broncos' final cuts.
Ball's roster spot seemed all but gone after a disastrous showing in the fourth preseason game, but Denver will keep the former second-round pick around for at least another couple days. Ball could still be cut once waiver claims begin this afternoon.
Lions released WR Greg Salas.
Salas was productive this preseason with 138 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions, but a knee injury suffered in the final preseason game likely sealed his fate. This move could be good news for sophomore WR T.J. Jones.
Redskins waived RB Trey Williams.
An undrafted rookie out of Texas A&M, Williams was pushing Chris Thompson for No. 3 duties, but ultimately couldn't make the leap. He should be stashed on the practice squad.
Chiefs waived RB Spencer Ware.
A fullback/tailback tweener, Ware spent Chiefs camp primarily playing tailback, and didn't embarrass himself. He scored a touchdown in the preseason finale. Unfortunately, Ware was outplayed by Charcandrick West behind Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. Darrin Reaves also remains on the roster -- for now.
Bengals released DT Devon Still.
He wasn't able to beat out Brandon Thompson for backup duties behind starter Geno Atkins. Still saw 237 snaps last season after a brief practice squad stint and it's feasible that could happen again if someone on the D-line gets injured.
Browns waived CB Robert Nelson.
Nelson appeared in seven games as an undrafted rookie last season. He could be headed to the practice squad.
The Cleveland Plain-Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reported Browns RB Terrance West's roster spot "is not necessarily safe."
Pro Football Talk reports the Browns are in the market for a veteran back, and if they find one it could mean the end for West. The sophomore running back has earned the ire of coach Mike Pettine for his "ups and downs" and will begin the season behind at least Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart if he sticks with Cleveland. The Browns have reportedly discussed bringing in Ray Rice.
