Eagles released QB Tim Tebow.
Tebow's apostles took Friday's trade of Matt Barkley as a sign that he'd be the Eagles' No. 3 quarterback, but the team has instead made the increasingly-common decision to go with only two signal callers. Mark Sanchez is one of the league's most experienced backups, making a third unnecessary for the time being. Tebow was impressive as a runner this summer while making some plays with his arm, but racked up stats against third- and fourth-string defenders, and hadn't appeared to make any meaningful progress on his previous form. A surprisingly great television presence, Tebow should be headed back to ESPN's SEC Network.
Browns released QB Thad Lewis.
Lewis posted a brutal 56.8 passer rating during the preseason and was always a long shot to make the team. The Browns will move forward with Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel at quarterback. The 27-year-old Lewis hasn't played in the regular season since 2013.
Falcons waived RB Jerome Smith.
A plodder out of Syracuse, Smith was proven to be a sub-average fit for new OC Kyle Shanahan's zone scheme. With Antone Smith also on the outs in Atlanta, the Falcons' current tailback depth chart looks like Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman, and Terron Ward, although that is subject to change before Monday.
49ers acquired C Nick Easton from the Ravens.
The compensation is not yet known, but it will likely be a conditional pick. The undrafted rookie out of Harvard will provide depth behind starter Marcus Martin.
Texans released DE Fili Moala.
Moala spent just two weeks in Houston. Now 30, he missed all of 2014 with a partially torn ACL.
Raiders waived RB Michael Dyer.
The undrafted rookie out of Louisville care of Auburn appeared to have a roster spot locked up when Oakland cut Trent Richardson, but he now looks destined to spend his rookie year on the practice squad. Dyer gained 70 yards on 31 carries (2.3 YPC) this preseason.
Jets released OT Charles Brown.
A 2010 second rounder, Brown made 14 starts for the Saints in 2013, but couldn't get on the field for the Giants last season.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Bears DE/OLB Willie Young is on the trade block.
Young recorded 10 sacks for the Bears last season, but he tore his Achilles in Week 16 and is not a great fit in the team's new 3-4 scheme. He would be a great pickup for a 4-3 team. Young will likely be released if the Bears cannot move him.
