Free agent OLB Paul Kruger will visit the Saints Tuesday.
He also has a visit scheduled with the Chiefs later in the week. Cut by the Browns on Monday, Kruger is easily the best pass rusher on the market and makes a lot of sense for both teams. New Orleans just missed out on landing Kruger in 2013, and they need all the help they can get rushing the passer. Kansas City is thin at outside backer with Justin Houston (knee) out indefinitely.
Seahawks waived RB Zac Brooks.
A change-of-pace back prospect, Brooks was Seattle's seventh-round pick. He got outplayed by fifth-rounder Alex Collins and UDFA Troymaine Pope in camp.
The Redskins at Bucs game scheduled for Thursday night at 8 PM ET has been moved up to Wednesday at 8 PM ET.
Tropical Depression Nine is expected to hit the Tampa area Thursday, so the two teams are getting this meaningless game out of the way 24 hours early.
Vikings TE MyCole Pruitt will be sidelined 2-4 weeks with a sprained MCL.
Pruitt was hurt in the Vikings' third preseason game. Expected to serve as the No. 2 tight end in a "move" role, Pruitt is extremely unlikely to play Week 1.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Kenny Stills' back "locked up" at Monday's practice, and the injury is "not considered serious."
It was initially reported as a leg injury for Stills, but after reading practice reports, it was pretty evident Stills was grabbing at his back after some end-zone work. Consider him day to day. Stills should be fine for Week 1.
Seahawks waived OL Kristjan Sokoli.
Sokoli is a SPARQ freak as a converted nose tackle, but the switch to offensive line didn't work out for the 2015 sixth-rounder. His agent, Brett Tessler, openly campaigned for Sokoli to be moved back to the defensive side.
Chargers released WR James Jones.
Jones was signed 27 days ago after Stevie Johnson's season-ending knee injury. He was expected to serve as the Bolts' No. 3 receiver, but Jones never got comfortable out west. Tyrell Williams is the overwhelming favorite to be San Diego's third receiver. Jones might get another shot with a different club in-season, but his playing days are numbered at 32 years old. He's been cut by the Chargers, Raiders, and Giants over the last two offseasons.
Bucs waived/injured WR Donteea Dye.
Dye strained his hamstring in the third preseason game and is expected to be out four weeks. Once healthy, he'll likely be cut with an injury settlement. Dye had been the favorite for the Bucs' kick-return duties.
