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



The NFL is about to undergo its final roster purge of the 2021 preseason. As always, it will be the largest one.

By 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 31, NFL teams will have to cut their 80-man rosters down to just 53 ahead of the regular season. That means that roughly 864 players will find themselves without work, even if it’s just temporary.

Most of the players cut were fighting for practice squad spots, so their respective releases will not be surprising. However, every year there are a few unexpected cuts that catch NFL fans off guard. Last year, a couple of running backs — Adrian Peterson and Leonard Fournette — were cut by Washington and Jacksonville respectively. Both found work shortly thereafter.

Odds are that will happen again for some of the players that are released. Teams will continue to tinker with their rosters ahead of the season, and that’s why there’s a waiver period for players in the 24 hours following final cuts. Those that don’t end up on rosters will have a chance to ink practice squad contracts when that period ends. NFL teams have 16 practice squad spots for 2021.

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