NFL cuts tracker 2021: live roster news, updates, notable cuts for all 32 teams

The NFL is set to undergo its final 2021 preseason roster purge. As always, this will be the biggest.

At 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 31, NFL teams will need to reduce their roster from 80 players to just 53 before the regular season. This means that around 864 players will find themselves out of work, albeit only temporarily.

Most of the cut players were battling for places on the practice squad, so their respective outings won’t be surprising. However, every year there are a few unexpected cuts that catch NFL fans off guard. Last year, a few running backs – Adrian Peterson and Leonard Fournette – were eliminated by Washington and Jacksonville respectively. Both found work soon after.

There’s a good chance this will happen again for some of the released players. Teams will continue to tinker with their rosters ahead of the season, which is why there is a waiver period for players within 24 hours of the final cups. Those who do not find themselves on the rosters will have the opportunity to sign training team contracts at the end of this period. NFL teams have 16 training spots for 2021.

Here’s a look at every player looking for work after the NFL’s downsizing to 53.
