Patriots waived/released LS Danny Aiken, LB Ja’Gared Davis, S Kanorris Davis, DB Daxton Swanson, S Shamiel Gary, DL Eathyn Manumaleuna, OL Chris Martin, LB Taylor McCuller and DL L.T. Tuipulotu.
Rob Ninkovich is now the only long snapper on the Patriots' 53-man roster. A move will likely be made some time in the next 48 hours.
Chiefs waived/released LB Nico Johnson, DT Kyle Love, LB Alonzo Highsmith, CB Justin Rogers, S Malcolm Bronson, DL Kona Schwenke, LB Devan Walker, WR Mark Harrison, RB Charcandrick West, and WR Fred Williams.
The 99th overall pick in last year's draft, Johnson loses his roster spot to James-Michael Johnson and Josh Mauga. Bronson and Harrison are candidates for the Chiefs' practice squad.
Browns waived TE/FB MarQueis Gray.
A hyped undrafted H-back last season, Gray was active for 12 games, managing eight touches. He could be headed to the practice squad.
Bears waived or released DE Austen Lane, LB Jerry Franklin, WR Josh Bellamy, DT Tracy Robertson, DT Brandon Dunn, CB C.J. Wilson, WR Dale Moss, OL Ryan Groy, DL Lee Pegues, CB Al Louis-Jean and M.D. Jennings.
Lane played well in camp, but could not crack the final roster. M.D. Jennings was waived with an injury settlement. Bellamy flashed in the final preseason game, and could be re-signed once Marquess Wilson is placed on injured reserve/designated to return.
Chiefs released K Ryan Succop.
Succop was only 22-of-28 on field goals last year, and had three years and $7.7M remaining on his contract. Cairo Santos, who has won the job for now, is signed for three years and $1.532M total.
Ryan Mallett has made the Patriots' 53-man roster.
The Patriots think of enough of Mallett to carry three quarterbacks for now. The 2011 third-rounder, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, remains on the trade block.
Jets waived QB Matt Simms.
Simms was thought to have beat out Tajh Boyd, but the Jets will only carry Michael Vick behind Geno Smith.
Ravens waived/released CB Derek Cox, OT Parker Graham, DT Jamie Meder and CB Sammy Seamster.
Cox was signed as veteran depth earlier this week, but ended up not being needed. He was released by the Vikings last week. Only 28 (next month), he'll search for reserve work.
