2017 NFL Roster Cuts

Starting this year, NFL teams were allowed to carry 90 players on their roster through the final preseason game. In past years, teams had to trim down to 75 players before their final preseason game and then get down to 53 afterwards. With two sets of cuts, it was much easier for fans and fantasy footballers to follow. This year, well over 1,000 players will be cut in roughly a 24 hour span. While this is much harder to track, it has led to some last minute trades due to the time crunch that front offices are in.

Teams have until Saturday, September 2nd at 4 PM EST to finalize their rosters. Below are the most noticeable cuts as of 11:45 AM EST on Saturday, September 2nd. This post will be updated so check back often.
