Jets release CB Dimitri Patterson.
Patterson was suspended until September 1 for going AWOL prior to the Jets' third preseason game. Patterson denied he went AWOL, and generally handled the situation as poorly as he possibly could have. Despite his erratic behavior and subpar play, Patterson will likely land with another team. The Texans are reportedly interested.
Colts waived/released QB Chandler Harnish, DE Gannon Conway, RB David Fluellen, DE Tyler Hoover, OLB Phillip Hunt, ILB Andrew Jackson, WR Ryan Lankford, WR Josh Lenz, C FN Lutz, S Dewey McDonald, DT Nnamdi Obukwelu, CB Sheldon Price, ILB Rob Ruggiero, TE Weslye Saunders, TE Erik Swoope, OG Josh Walker and NT Brandon McKinney.
The No. 253 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Harnish has never attempted a regular-season pass. Fluellen is a candidate for the practice squad, and could eventually reach the 53-man roster considering the state of the Colts' running back corps.
Cowboys waived RB Ryan Williams.
Williams ran well this preseason, but could not overtake second-year RB Joseph Randle for the No. 3 job in Dallas. Williams still has practice squad eligibility, but it is unlikely he makes it through the waiver process. Williams rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries this preseason.
Seahawks acquired CB Marcus Burley from the Colts for a sixth-round pick.
A 2013 UDFA, Burley didn't appear in any games with the Colts last year and spent time on the Eagles and Jags practice squads. He put together a strong preseason, grading out as the No. 3 overall corner by Pro Football Focus. Burley adds a speed complement to Seattle's secondary. He should open the year as the No. 5 corner, and perhaps eventually push for time in dime packages.
Bengals waived/released RB James Wilder Jr., TE Orson Charles, OT Dan France, WR Cobi Hamilton, DT David King, WR Colin Lockett, CB Onterio McCalebb, DE Dontay Moch, DE Sam Montgomery, C Trevor Robinson and FB Nikita Whitlock.
Wilder had a nice night in the Bengals' preseason finale, but also missed time with injury. A gargantuan 6-foot-3, 232 pounds, he'll be a candidate for the practice squad.
ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker reports C Mike Pouncey (hip) will avoid the reserve/PUP list to start the season.
Pouncey would have been forced to miss the first six games of the season if the Dolphins placed him on the PUP list. Avoiding the list means he will be allowed to practice with the team, and could be back as early as Week 4. Samson Satele will fill in at center while Pouncey is out.
Bengals placed QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) on reserve/NFI.
As expected. McCarron, whose shoulder has been bothering him since May and never had a strong arm anyway, is not be eligible to return until after six games. He wasn't going to beat out Jason Campbell for backup duties anyway.
Jaguars waived CB Jamell Fleming.
Fleming appeared in eight games with Jacksonville last season after being claimed off waivers from the Cardinals. The Jaguars saw more upside in Demetrius McCray and Jeremy Harris.
