Broncos K Matt Prater (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's Week 5 game at Dallas.

Prater was limited in practice all week with a right (kicking) calf issue. But the Broncos felt good enough with his status not to sign another kicker. We wouldn't bench fantasy's top option at the position.

Rams waived DE Michael Sam.

Sam's bid to become the NFL's first openly gay player to appear in a regular season game hits a speedbump. The 2013 co-SEC Defensive Player of the Year was productive during the preseason, earning a slightly positive grade from PFF while compiling two sacks, two QB hits and four QB hurries on 133 snaps. But he was always a bubble prospect due to unimpressive athleticism and no role on special teams. The Rams will likely try to get Sam onto their practice squad, but he'd do better to head to a team with less depth and talent on their D-Line.

Saints released CB Champ Bailey.

The Saints are going with undrafted rookie Brian Dixon instead. Bailey was signed to compete for the No. 2 cornerback job, but now 36, couldn't crack the Saints' loaded defense. The Saints must eat Bailey's $500,000 signing bonus. Bailey was limited to five games by a foot injury for the Broncos last season, and struggled when in the lineup. His résumé will get him another look, but he's near the end.

Cowboys waived RB Ryan Williams.

Williams ran well this preseason, but could not overtake second-year RB Joseph Randle for the No. 3 job in Dallas. Williams still has practice squad eligibility, but it is unlikely he makes it through the waiver process. Williams rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries this preseason.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker reports C Mike Pouncey (hip) will avoid the reserve/PUP list to start the season.

Pouncey would have been forced to miss the first six games of the season if the Dolphins placed him on the PUP list. Avoiding the list means he will be allowed to practice with the team, and could be back as early as Week 4. Samson Satele will fill in at center while Pouncey is out.

Raiders waived WR Greg Little.

Little went into the final preseason game needing a big performance to beat out Brice Butler or Andre Holmes. He instead flopped, catching two passes for 10 yards and getting thrown at on an interception. Little, one of the bigger busts of the 2011 draft, has now been waived by two teams in the last four months.

"Multiple sources" tell Philly.com's Jimmy Kempski that the Eagles are "open" to trading third-string QB Matt Barkley.

This report was echoed by Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News. Barkley is a relatively unattractive trade target with limited physical tools, and coming off a ho-hum preseason. Perhaps he'd fetch a sixth- or seventh-round pick.

Chargers waive/injured WR Vincent Brown.

Brown hasn't practiced since July 25, but is reportedly near full health. The Union-Tribune San Diego reports Brown "won't be on the Chargers' 53-man roster," so it sounds like he could end up getting released with an injury settlement. The No. 82 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Brown was an exciting prospect after catching 19 passes for 329 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, but was never the same after missing all of 2012 with a broken ankle. Brown moved like a tight end last season as he limped to a 41/472/1 line across 16 games.

Bernard Pierce (concussion) resumed practicing Saturday.

Pierce is exactly seven days removed from his concussion. He's now firmly on track to be ready for Week 1, where he'll start in place of Ray Rice (suspension). Pierce, a nice fit for Gary Kubiak's one-cut scheme, rushed 11 times for 52 yards and caught one pass for three yards on 37 preseason snaps.
Aug 30 - 12:23 PM

Jets waived WR Stephen Hill.

Hill got off to a hot start in spring practices but fell off a cliff once preseason got underway. He reeled in just 3-of-8 targets for 42 yards, while dropping two passes. Drops have been a recurring theme for the No. 43 overall pick in the 2012 draft. Hill has dropped nine of his 97 career targets. Hill still has enough raw talent to draw looks on waivers. He has ideal size (6'4/215) and speed (4.36 forty). We're not ruling out Hill eventually developing into a serviceable receiver somewhere outside of New York. He's only 23.

Dolphins waived RB Daniel Thomas and RB/KR Marcus Thigpen.

The Fins finally admit their mistake on Thomas, whom ex-GM Jeff Ireland traded up to select in the second round of the 2011 draft. Thomas almost single-handedly held Miami's running game hostage for the past three seasons. The team will now move forward with Lamar Miller, Knowshon Moreno, and UDFA Damien Williams, although we wouldn't rule out the Dolphins putting in a waiver claim on a tailback toward the end of final cuts.
Aug 30 - 11:28 AM

Free agent OLB James Harrison has retired from the NFL after 12 seasons.

Harrison's play really fell off the past couple years, but he was one of the most feared pass rushers of the past decade. A former UDFA out of Kent State, Harrison registered 66 career sacks and 29 forced fumbles. He was the heart and soul of the Steelers defenses of the late 2000s. Harrison, 36, is a five-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro. Harrison will likely ink a one-day contract with the Steelers after spending the first 11 years of his career in Pittsburgh before joining Cincinnati in 2013. He'll likely fall short of the Hall of Fame, but should land in the Steelers' Ring of Honor.
