Footballguys view: Swoope was the former basketball player who was trying to make it into the pros as a tight end. The team might keep him around on the practice squad.

The Buffalo Bills released FS Deon Broomfield, LB Jimmy Gaines, WR T.J. Graham, WR Caleb Holley, DE Ikponmwosa Igbinosun, DE Bryan Johnson, FS Kenny Ladler, C Doug Legursky and OG Antoine McClain.

Footballguys view: Graham is a speedy wide receiver, but he's failed to make a positive impression as a pro. He's basically a one-route guy (go route) with concentration problems. The Bills could've used a weapon like Graham, but he never developed.

Footballguys view: We could see Wilder Jr. added to the practice squad. He's a powerful runner who might be worth keeping around as a developmental prospect.

  Chargers | Versatility helps Tenny Palepoi    Sat Aug 30, 01:47 AM

San Diego Chargers DE Tenny Palepoi appears to have survived the latest wave of cuts, and the fact he can play both defensive end spots as well as nose tackle likely helped his cause.

Tialavea and LB Marcus Whitfield Friday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Morris might be able to stick around on the practice squad. He's a good athlete with a strong arm. His mechanics are nearly flawless when the pocket is clean, but his game falls apart under pressure.

Footballguys view: None of these should come as a surprise. Without Palmer, the team will need to add a veteran backup. They currently only have Jeff Tuel as the primary backup behind E.J. Manuel.

  Rams | Michael Sam has six tackles in final game    Fri Aug 29, 04:59 AM

St. Louis Rams DE Michael Sam recorded six tackles in the team's final exhibition game against the Miami Dolphins. He is battling DE Ethan Westbrooks for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Sam is at least making the practice squad for the Rams. He's limited physically, but he plays with a ton of heart and desire. We could see Sam make the final roster.

  Rams | Michael Sam fighting for spot    Thu Aug 28, 03:49 PM

St. Louis Rams DE Michael Sam is competing with DE Ethan Westbrooks for a spot on the final roster.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see how this shakes out. Sam has created some good pressure and logged some sacks while Westbrooks - an undrafted free agent - has played incredibly well and far exceeded expectations. It's unlikely they keep both but the Rams have to know that the one they drop is probably not making it to the practice squad as both players have done enough to generate interest among other NFL teams. Neither is likely to have fantasy value this year on the Rams, but they could in the right situation.

  Titans | Jurrell Casey gets extension    Wed Aug 27, 05:42 PM

Tennessee Titans DT Jurrell Casey received a four-year contract extension Wednesday, Aug. 27, worth $36 million. The deal includes $20.5 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Casey lost DT eligibility in most league software setups for IDP leagues, but he could still be a solid DE in fantasy leagues in Ray Horton's defense with his top end skillset. He's the highest paid player on the Titans roster now.

  Saints | Injury notes    Tue Aug 26, 11:48 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps), SS Rafael Bush (undisclosed), SS Marcus Ball (undisclosed), LB Khairi Fortt (undisclosed) and FB Erik Lorig (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and CB Trevin Wade (undisclosed) was limited.

Footballguys view: Stills has barely played this summer. His star is falling in redraft leagues and his absence is doing nothing to slow down the Brandin Cooks express and the resurgence of Marques Colston. Unless Still falls to the 11th-12th round or later, Cooks and Colston are much better picks at their ADP.

The Dallas Cowboys waived WR Chris Boyd, P Tom Hornsey, LS Casey Kreiter, DE Adewale Ojomo and OG Wayne Tribue Tuesday, Aug. 26.

  Cowboys | Anthony Spencer to come off PUP    Tue Aug 26, 01:05 PM

Updating a previous item, Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) will be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list soon, but he still will not be ready to play in Week 1, according to owner Jerry Jones. The team is optimistic Spencer can play as soon as Week 2.

Footballguys view: Spencer has been a money hole for the Cowboys over the last two years, but with a short-handed defensive line, they have to take their chances that he'll be able to help this year sooner than later.
