Packers waived RB Rajion Neal.
It's a mild surprise, as Neal had been on pace to be Green Bay's third back. A second-year undrafted free agent out of Tennessee, Neal had a middling preseason, averaging 4.1 yards on 17 carries. He'll presumably be heading to the practice squad.
Steelers waived S Gerod Holliman.
Holliman had a bunch of interceptions last year at Louisville, but he was a contact-averse tackler with a distinct lack of athleticism. He isn't even worth trying to "develop" on the Steelers' practice squad.
Jets released QB Josh Johnson.
Coupled with the release of Matt Flynn, it means the Jets are comfortable with Bryce Petty behind Ryan Fitzpatrick while Geno Smith (jaw) rehabs. It would be an unmitigated disaster were Petty forced into a game.
Steelers waived RB Josh Harris.
With Le'Veon Bell on suspension, the Steelers appear poised to enter the season with only DeAngelo Williams and Dri Archer on the roster at tailback. For now, they're carrying two fullbacks in Will Johnson and Roosevelt Nix.
Chiefs waived WR Da'Ron Brown.
A seventh-rounder out of Northern Illinois, Brown caught four passes for 30 yards in the preseason opener, but struggled to make an impact after that. He will likely be stashed on the practice squad.
Jets released QB Matt Flynn.
Flynn was just a camp arm. The Jets are going with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith and Bryce Petty at quarterback. Flynn will get calls any time a team needs a veteran seat warmer.
Chiefs waived WR Fred Williams.
Williams lit up the preseason with 167 yards and three touchdowns on 15 receptions. He will likely be stashed on the practice squad if he passes through waivers.
Steelers signed CB Ross Cockrell.
A fourth-round pick of the Bills last year, Cockrell played just 11 snaps as a rookie and was waived during first cuts after struggling in training camp. A big framed corner with decent athleticism, Cockrell is a nice upside pickup.
