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.
Redskins waived G/T Takoby Cofield.
Cofield received one of this year's highest signing bonuses for an undrafted free agent, $25,000. The Washington Post reports the Redskins will stash him on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Bucs placed DE Larry English on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
The 2009 first-rounder suffered a "significant" knee injury in Thursday's preseason game. An impending free agent, English turns 30 in January.
