NFL roster moves – Final 53-man player projections for all 32 teamsAug 29, 2021
The 2021 NFL season kicks off Thursday, Sept. 9, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play host to the Dallas Cowboys (8:20 p.m., NBC). Teams have been in training camp since late July, with three preseason games to help inform decisions about which undrafted free agents might be worth keeping, which veterans are on the decline and which positions need the most reinforcements.
With the regular season approaching fast, teams have to make roster decisions and cut to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. With that in mind, ESPN’s NFL Nation projects what all 32 rosters will look like below.

Most of the 53-man roster wasn’t difficult to piece together, but there will be questions at running back (three or four?) and cornerback (does versatile linebacker Isaiah Simmons allow Arizona to keep five cornerbacks instead of six?).
The backup quarterback situation with AJ McCarron’s torn ACL might throw the back of the roster into flux. Newly acquired Josh Rosen is in contention. Don’t be surprised if Atlanta is active on waivers and potentially trades to shore up its depth — particularly at quarterback, offensive line and defensive line, where there are questions behind the starters. Michael Rothstein’s final 53-man roster projection
Most of the intrigue is on the offense, where the Ravens have to figure out whether they will keep a third quarterback (if Trace McSorley has recovered from a back injury), determine who is going to be the third running back and figure out who will get the last spot on the offensive line. Jamison Hensley’s final 53-man roster projection
There isn’t a lot of turnover from last year’s roster, but they will feature their deepest receiver room and deepest defensive line under GM Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Their defensive front is now loaded with linemen who can play inside or out.
It might seem like kicker is the biggest issue with the Panthers from all the midweek activity with Joey Slye in a slump, but that’s the least of their problems. There is still uncertainty about whether Sam Darnold can rebound from three bad years in New York and Cameron Erving can finally solve the revolving door at left tackle. And then there is the overall lack of depth on defense. David Newton’s final 53-man roster projection
The most roster intrigue is at cornerback, where veteran Desmond Trufant is on the bubble to make the squad. Trufant missed time due to personal reasons and has not had the opportunity to make an impact in the preseason. The door is wide open for veteran Artie Burns to challenge Kindle Vildor for the starting cornerback spot opposite Jaylon Johnson.
The big question surrounding the Bengals: What will the offensive line look like and will the unit be good enough to protect Joe Burrow? Xavier Su’a-Filo and Quinton Spain are the front-runners for the starting spots at offensive guard. With the veterans beating out rookie guard Jackson Carman, it could create a numbers squeeze at other places on the roster.
Unlike in recent seasons, Cleveland’s roster was largely settled before camp, thanks to an offense that returned 11 starters. Still, a few key vets from last year, most notably running back D’Ernest Johnson and receiver KhaDarel Hodge, face tough battles to keep their spots. Jake Trotter’s final 53-man roster projection
The Cowboys will do some moving and shaking after final cuts on Tuesday to make sure injured players like Neville Gallimore and Sean McKeon can return at some point during the season.
The quarterback competition, won by Teddy Bridgewater, stole the attention, but after a quality offseason this roster is far better than the one that finished the 2020 season. The additions include stars returning from injury like Von Miller and Courtland Sutton, free agents like Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller, and a rookie class headed by cornerback Pat Surtain II. Jeff Legwold’s final 53-man roster projection
There are not a ton of household names on the roster, but the new regime, led by first-year coach Dan Campbell, is looking to establish a hard-nosed identity with the organization in a complete rebuild. These new-look Lions have brought in players with a chip on their shoulder, and have seemingly nothing to lose since no one is expecting much out of this team.
The Packers have such a strong roster that there isn’t a lot of drama at the top. About the only eye-catching decision will be whether to keep a third quarterback. Kurt Benkert dazzled at times, but do they really need to burn a spot on the 53? Unless they are afraid he will get claimed off waivers, they will probably try to get him through to the practice squad.
As the Texans get closer to the start of the regular season with Deshaun Watson eligible to take part in all team activities, general manager Nick Caserio has to decide what to do with the quarterback when the team must get down to 53 players. Sarah Barshop’s final 53-man roster projection
This was one of the least competitive training camps the Colts have had in recent years when it comes to roster spots. The kicking competition didn’t have much flair, as Rodrigo Blankenship beat out Eddy Pineiro. Receiver could end up being the deepest position on the team.
The loss of running back Travis Etienne takes away a big-play element and the Jaguars don’t really have anyone on the roster to replace that. Expect them to mine the waiver wire after final cuts to see if they can improve there and at tight end. Michael DiRocco’s final 53-man roster projection

The most interesting decisions are on the offensive line, where the Chiefs added eight strong roster candidates who weren’t with the team last year. So they might keep extras there or look to deal one or more of the backups. Adam Teicher’s final 53-man roster projection
The key always is staying healthy. Coach Brandon Staley has been very careful with his players — activation/stretching/exercises like planks and high-stepping have been key to no serious injuries, unlike in other offseasons. There are still starting positions to be decided on, but there are choices at least. Shelley Smith’s final 53-man roster projection
The Rams lacked much roster drama throughout the preseason with most starting positions accounted for entering training camp. The biggest question was whether they would be able to quickly develop depth in the offensive backfield following Cam Akers’ season-ending Achilles tear. The Rams answered that question Wednesday when they acquired running back Sony Michel from the New England Patriots. Lindsey Thiry’s final 53-man roster projection
Las Vegas rebuilt its offensive and defensive lines this offseason, and how its roster decisions in the trenches play out could determine if the Raiders improve upon last season’s 8-8 finish. Paul Gutierrez’s final 53-man roster projection
The Dolphins need Tua Tagovailoa to take the next step in 2021 and have given him some pass-catchers who can create separation and make things happen after the catch. If he doesn’t improve this season, it probably won’t be because of the talent around him. Marcel Louis-Jacques’ final 53-man roster projection
The Vikings will keep three quarterbacks, but don’t be surprised to see a new face backing up Kirk Cousins once Minnesota gets a look at other veterans who become available next week. Neither Jake Browning nor Kellen Mond did enough in preseason games to earn the QB2 role, and one of them finds himself off the roster on Tuesday.
Just two quarterbacks shows how far Mac Jones has come in a short period of time; if he’s not the No. 1, he’ll definitely be the No. 2. And defensive back might be a sneaky spot where the Patriots are looking for an addition across the NFL. Mike Reiss’ final 53-man roster projection
The Saints will have at least 10 new starters in Week 1, thanks to Drew Brees’ retirement, an offseason salary-cap purge and a handful of untimely injuries and suspensions. They will look to add depth at cornerback, defensive tackle, tight end and kicker from players cut around the league. And there is some intrigue about whether they will keep veteran skill-position players like Latavius Murray, Devonta Freeman and Chris Hogan. Mike Triplett’s final 53-man roster projection
The Giants have some really difficult decisions at wide receiver, running back and edge rusher. It’s even possible they carry two fullbacks! The offensive line will likely be adjusted after the final cuts. Jordan Raanan’s final 53-man roster projection
With the No. 2 waiver priority and many holes to fill, the Jets will be in a roster-churning mode over the next few days. They also will be looking to trade for an edge rusher, perhaps using one of their receivers as a bargaining chip. Jamison Crowder has the most trade value and could attract teams. Also, don’t rule out a veteran backup at quarterback. Rich Cimini’s final 53-man roster projection
The receiver group is a question mark for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s super young and inexperienced, and needs one or two unproven players to emerge. There are some tough personnel decisions looming. Tim McManus’ final 53-man roster projection

Some of the hottest battles of the Steelers’ training camp were for backup jobs. While Mason Rudolph appears to have won the No. 2 QB job, the Steelers seem poised to keep Dwayne Haskins on the roster to develop this season. Quiet camps from running backs Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels might have cost them jobs as the Steelers look to give the secondary and linebackers more depth. Brooke Pryor’s final 53-man roster projection
One benefit of the Niners’ unique quarterback situation? It could allow them to keep just two and provide an opportunity for increased depth at thinner spots like receiver and the secondary. Nick Wagoner’s final 53-man roster projection
The usual questions are there when it comes to the Seahawks’ roster: Will they keep five receivers or six? Who will claim the final spots at cornerback and running back? But the biggest question this year is about whether left tackle Duane Brown will play amid his contract dispute. Brady Henderson’s final 53-man roster projection
With all 22 starters returning from their Super Bowl LV win and nearly every key reserve back, the Bucs have only about eight or nine roster spots up for grabs in 2021. It all comes down to who brings the most value on special teams. Jenna Laine’s final 53-man roster projection
GM Jon Robinson turned receiver and outside linebacker into team strengths by acquiring Julio Jones and Bud Dupree. There will be some solid players who get released during roster cutdowns. Turron Davenport’s final 53-man roster projection
Several receivers will be cut who would have made it a year ago, or in a few cases, did make the roster. Defensive back is another tough area to call. It also will be interesting to see what Washington does at tight end with Sammis Reyes; he still appears a ways off, but will the coaches want to risk losing a player they think can develop?

When are NFL roster cuts 2021? Deadline date, rules, practice squad salary & more to know
Last preseason was a difficult one for NFL front offices and coaching staffs. They had to decide the fate of 27 players without seeing them in live game action.
The good news teams in 2021 is that they will each have at least three preseason contests during which they can evaluate their players. However, teams are once again carrying the traditional 90-man rosters after the league constricted training camp rosters to 80 during the pandemic. The extra sum of players will, naturally, make roster cuts a bit more difficult. After all, those 37 cuts comprise 41.1 percent of an NFL roster.
That said, the NFL is attempting to make it a bit easier for teams, as they are adding a couple of smaller cut-down deadlines ahead of the trim to 53 players on Aug. 31. Additionally, that Aug. 31 cut date is nine days before the season begins, so it will give players plenty of time to land roles with other teams on an active roster or practice squad.
And there will be plenty of opportunities for players to earn practice squad spots. The NFL is keeping its expanded practice squad rules from 2020 in effect, and that will allow more players to land jobs and NFL teams to carry more depth.
All told, NFL teams will have 53 available roster spots and 16 practice squad spots to fill in 2021. Certainly, the adjusted rules will have an impact on roster cuts and roster-building strategy as Week 1 draws nearer and nearer. Below are more details about the deadline for NFL roster cuts and the rules for practice squad construction.

When are NFL roster cuts in 2021?
53-man roster deadline
- Date: Tuesday, Aug. 31
- Time: 4 p.m. ET
The NFL’s final roster cut deadline will occur at 4 p.m. ET on August 31. At that point, all NFL teams must have no more than 53 players on their active rosters. Currently, teams are allowed to carry up to 90 players.
That said, the NFL has added a couple of extra roster cut deadlines built into the preseason. The league had done away with having multiple sets of roster cuts ahead of the 2017 preseason, but they implemented a cut to 80 during ahead of 2020 training camp — which was largely due to COVID concerns. Evidently, the NFL liked that cut enough to keep it around, albeit in a different form.
This year, the league will have teams cut five players from their roster on two occasions before the final cut to 53. After Week 1 of the preseason, teams will have to trim their rosters down to 85. After Week 2, they’ll cut another five players to bring each team’s total down to 80.
Here’s when those two deadlines will come into effect.
85-man roster deadline
- Date: Tuesday, August 17
- Time: 4 p.m. ET
80-man roster deadline
- Date: Tuesday, August 24
- Time: 4 p.m. ET
Each of the two pre-final cut deadlines will see roughly 160 players released. The final cutdown will purge 864 players from NFL active rosters.

NFL roster cuts rules
The NFL’s deadline for final roster cuts is Aug. 31, but teams will inevitably make moves ahead of that deadline. In recent years, some teams have released their full list of cuts almost immediately after their third preseason game. Also, some NFL teams may not make their final 27 cuts all at once; they’ll come rolling in over a period of a couple of days.
Below is the NFL’s official language regarding the Aug. 31 roster cuts deadline:
Prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, clubs must reduce rosters to a maximum of 53 players on the Active/Inactive List. … Simultaneously with the roster reduction to 53 players, clubs that have players in the categories of Active/Physically Unable to Perform or Active/Non-Football Injury or Illness must select one of the following options: place player on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform or Reserve/Non-Football Injury or Illness, whichever is applicable; terminate or request waivers with the designation of Failed Physical or Non-Football Injury or Illness, whichever is applicable; request waivers; terminate contract; trade contract; or continue to count the player on the Active List.
Players that are on the PUP or NFI lists don’t count toward roster totals in the offseason or during the regular season. They just can’t practice or play while on those lists. If activated from those lists, teams will have to create a roster spot for them, which could mean releasing an extra player.
However, if a player remains on the PUP list, they are ineligible to return to action until after the team’s sixth game. Additionally, players placed on IR before the cut to 53 are ineligible to return during the season.
The players that are placed on waivers during final cuts will be eligible to be claimed by teams until 4 p.m. ET on Sept. 1. After that, teams can start to sign players and fill out their 16-man practice squads. Below is the full schedule for the NFL’s roster cut/construction period.
|Aug. 17||Deadline to cut training camp rosters to 85 players|
|Aug. 24||Deadline to cut training camp rosters to 80 players|
|Aug. 31||Deadline to cut training camp rosters to 53 players|
|Sept. 1||Post-cut waiver claim period ends at 4 p.m. ET|
|Sept. 1||Teams can sign practice squad players after waiver claims are processed|

NFL practice squad rules
The NFL initially implemented a plan to gradually increase practice squad sizes beginning in the 2020 season. Originally, the league planned to expand to 12 practice squad players in 2020 and 14 in 2022.
However, the COVID pandemic forced them to reconsider, and practice squad sizes were expanded to 16. Of those 16 players, six could be veterans with an unlimited number of accrued pro seasons under their belts. This was to allow more roster flexibility and depth for teams in case of a potential COVID outbreak.
The NFL has opted to keep the 2020 practice squad rules in effect once again. So, once again there will be 16 players allowed on practice squads with the following players being eligible for the units:
- Players who do not have an accrued season of NFL experience (rookies)
- Players who were on the active list for fewer than nine regular-season games during their only accrued season(s)
- Up to four players per team who have earned no more than two accrued seasons (no game limitations)
- Up to six players per team with no limitations as to their number of earned accrued seasons
Additionally, teams are allowed to promote two players from their practice squad to create a 55-man roster on game days. These call-ups can occur as late as 90 minutes before the game — when the official inactives list is posted. After the game, the player reverts back to the practice squad.
Practice squad players cannot sign a contract with another team’s practice squad. If they sign elsewhere, they must receive a promotion to the 53-man roster of the team that signed them.
Practice squad players are free to sign with another team’s 53-man roster at any time with one exception; teams are allowed to protect up to four players per week on their practice. Protected players cannot sign elsewhere.

NFL practice squad salaries
The NFL has two scales implemented to help determine practice squad salary. There’s one for players with two or fewer accrued seasons — a group that makes up most of NFL practice squads — and one for NFL veterans that have landed on practice squads.
The first group, which is largely comprised of rookies, are paid a fixed weekly salary. This was negotiated into the NFL’s current CBA and will increase on a yearly basis. This year, they’ll make $9,200 a week after making $8,400 a week in 2020.
Below are the rest of the values for players with two or fewer accrued seasons.
The second group consists of NFL veterans. These players have no limitations regarding their number of earned accrued seasons. That’s why you’ll occasionally see long-term NFL players on these units, like Donte Moncrief and Trevor Siemian in 2020. Teams are allowed to keep up to six of these players on their roster in 2021.
Right now, these players are receiving a fixed weekly salary. However, starting in 2022, their salaries will fall within a price range that they’ll be able to negotiate with teams. That could create more competition in signing veterans to the practice squad.
Here’s a look at those values through 2030, the duration of the NFL’s current CBA.
|Year||Minimum weekly salary||Maximum weekly salary|
There are no guaranteed salaries, bonuses or incentives above the weekly check for practice squad players. If a player is promoted to the active roster on game day, they will receive a prorated cut of the minimum annual salary for a player with his number of accrued seasons. In 2020, that was 1/17 of the minimum. With the NFL moving to an 18-week regular season, that cut could decrease to a 1/18 value.

Before NFL teams could begin preparing for the start of the 2021 season, they needed to make their final 53-man roster cuts by 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
Hundreds of players had their dreams of making it to the NFL dashed. However, they’ll still have the chance to be placed on a practice squad or snatched up on waivers by another team.
Some surprises always pop up as teams make moves that seemed unlikely at the start of training camp. With these roster cuts, we’ve learned something about each team’s plans in 2021.

Let’s start by discussing a player who wasn’t cut: Malcolm Butler.
The Arizona Cardinals placed Butler on the reserve/retired list. A day earlier, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the veteran corner has been dealing with a personal situation.
“I don’t want to get into, kind of, where it’s at,” head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters. “Like I said, nothing’s official. Just leave it at that.”
Without Butler and not knowing if he’ll return, the Cardinals secondary is now in upheaval.
The 31-year-old was supposed to serve as the unit’s top cover corner. Fourth-round rookie Marco Wilson will likely be thrust into a starting role, unless Arizona acquires another starting-caliber corner in the short term. Byron Murphy Jr. can also flex to outside corner if needed, but he’s better-served playing over the slot.

Quarterback Josh Rosen finally might have found his NFL home.
Since the Arizona Cardinals selected him with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, Rosen has bounced around the league. He’s already been a part of four different teams—the Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers—before he signed with the Atlanta Falcons last week.
Rosen responded with a relatively strong performance in Week 3 of the preseason, finishing 9-of-18 for 118 passing yards and a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns. The Falcons saw enough for him to enter the season as a backup to Matt Ryan.
The fourth-year signal-caller is only 24 years old. He may not be a franchise quarterback, but he’s never been on the same team long enough to gain a real comfort level and develop.
Atlanta may be the ideal landing spot for Rosen behind Ryan, who has a similar skill set. New head coach Arthur Smith’s previous track record of turning Ryan Tannehill’s career around adds more intrigue.
Both Rosen and Feleipe Franks have growth potential for a Falcons team that will eventually be looking for a long-term answer whenever it moves on from the 36-year-old Ryan.

The Baltimore Ravens’ edge-rushers could look dramatically different this fall compared to last season. Four of the team’s top sack producers could be on different squads.
Matt Judon signed with the New England Patriots in free agency. Jihad Ward and Yannick Ngakoue left for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Las Vegas Raiders, respectively. And Baltimore cut Pernell McPhee on Tuesday.
The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec believes the Ravens will re-sign the 32-year-old one they place a few players on injured reserve. The possibility of McPhee not returning is interesting, too.
Baltimore knew it had to beef up its pass rush this offseason. To do so, general manager Eric DeCosta re-signed Tyus Bowser, drafted Odafe Oweh in the first round and eventually brought in Justin Houston. McPhee could end up being the odd man out of what looks like an improved unit.

Tight end is arguably the weakest position on the Buffalo Bills’ roster as they continue to wait for Dawson Knox to break out. They hedged their bet this offseason by signing Jacob Hollister in free agency, but they released him Tuesday.
Knox and Tommy Sweeney now make up Buffalo’s tight end room, though Hollister could return if another team doesn’t claim him on waivers.
The Bills might be biding their time until they can place injured players on short-term injured reserve. Anyone placed on IR before the roster cutdown is lost for the season, so they may already have a deal in place to bring Hollister back once they make those moves.
However, the 27-year-old could generate interest elsewhere. Over the last two seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, he caught 66 passes for 558 yards and six touchdowns.
Whether he’s in Buffalo or not, Hollister figures to help a team this season.

The Carolina Panthers decided to keep only three running backs. Rodney Smith isn’t among them.
Christian McCaffrey will continue to serve as Carolina’s offensive focal point. Fourth-round pick Chuba Hubbard impressed during his first training camp and preseason. And Trenton Cannon should be a core special teamer.
Smith became the odd man out even though he appeared poised to be part of the running back rotation. The Charlotte Observer’s Alaina Getzenberg reported that Smith was at practice before the Panthers decided he would be their final cut.
The 25-year-old dealt with a knee injury in recent weeks before getting back on the field and finding out his fate.
McCaffrey and Hubbard will get the lion’s share of the work in the run game (and some of the pass game). But the Panthers are now thin in the backfield.

The Chicago Bears have serious depth concerns at cornerback.
Jaylon Johnson is Chicago’s CB1. Beyond that, the unit remains in flux after the team released Desmond Trufant, Artie Burns, Marqui Christian, Tre Roberson and sixth-round rookie Thomas Graham Jr.
Kindle Vildor will almost certainly take over the spot opposite Johnson, and Duke Shelley should cover the slot. From there, Chicago has next to nothing at cornerback.
Burns and Christian can return once the team places a few other players on short-term injured reserve. But even if both rejoin the Bears, their cornerback situation won’t be dramatically better.
The Bears chose to release Kyle Fuller this offseason, which created a hole that they never adequately addressed. The position remains a sore spot, and it may become even more of a glaring hole depending on how Chicago proceeds in the next few days.

Aside from Joe Burrow’s recovery from last season’s ACL tear, the Cincinnati Bengals’ biggest offseason concern revolved around rebuilding their offensive front. The two situations technically went hand-in-hand.
First, the Bengals rehired Frank Pollack to serve as their offensive line coach. Then, they signed veteran Riley Reiff to take over at right tackle. They also drafted Clemson’s Jackson Carman, who will convert from left tackle to guard this fall.
As a result, Cincinnati saw an opportunity to cut ties on a failed investment.
On Monday, the team traded 2018 first-round pick Billy Price to the New York Giants in exchange for defensive tackle B.J. Hill. On Tuesday, the Bengals cut Michael Jordan, who started 19 games for them over the last two seasons.
Moving forward, the Bengals’ interior will feature veteran guards Quinton Spain and Xavier Su’a-Filo with rookies Carman and D’Ante Smith pushing them for playing time. That should make them better up front than they were last year.

NFL training camps often provide inspiring stories about athletes who overcame obstacles to play at the highest level. Malik McDowell proved to be one of this year’s most interesting.
McDowell signed with the Michigan State Spartans as a 5-star recruit. He looked like a slam-dunk future first-round pick. However, questions about his football character arose prior to the 2017 NFL draft. The Seattle Seahawks wound up selecting him with the 35th overall pick.
McDowell suffered numerous injuries during an ATV accident before he even reported to his first training camp. The defensive lineman was also arrested on multiple occasions and sentenced to 11 months in jail.
The Cleveland Browns took a flier on McDowell this offseason, and he made the Browns’ active roster Tuesday.
“We believe Malik is in a good place, personally and medically. He has taken the necessary steps to get on a healthy path, and has learned from his experiences,” general manager Andrew Berry said in a statement upon signing McDowell in May. “… He is committed to taking advantage of the support network in place to become the best version of himself—both on and off the field—and we will support him as he attempts to make his return to football.”
The front office’s belief in McDowell provided the team with a player who dominated throughout preseason. He’ll give the Browns a real interior presence.

Cooper Rush is the Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback for now.
“I just think that he’s shown that he can run the complete offense,” team owner Jerry Jones told reporters. “Credit to him, he had some tough competition. Those guys didn’t cut him any slack. He’s had a lot of rep – a lot of our quarterbacks have, because of the absence of Dak.”
Dallas chose to release both Garrett Gilbert and Ben DiNucci. Jones may not be done at the position, though.
According to ESPN’s Jordan Schultz, the Cowboys “will begin exploring” the possibility of signing Cam Newton, whom the New England Patriots cut before Tuesday’s deadline.
Newton backing up Dak Prescott sounds exactly like the type of move Jones would make. But he should strongly consider it after watching the team’s nosedive last year once Prescott suffered a season-ending ankle injury.

The Denver Broncos know where they need to excel while playing in the AFC West, hence why they kept 11 defensive backs on their initial 53-man roster.
General manager George Paton explained their approach, per Aric DiLalla of the team’s official site:
“You just look at the division we play in with Kansas City and … Vegas and the Chargers. You need corners. You need safeties. … It’s a pressure and cover league. I just don’t think you can have enough, and I like our group. It’s going to help the front [be] better. When you can cover longer, it helps Von [Miller], it helps [Bradley] Chubb. It helps all those guys. There was a thought process into that. With [Vic Fangio’s] defense, getting those guys that can cover, we’re only going to be that much better.”
As Denver News9’s Mike Klis noted, the Broncos have the league’s highest-paid secondary.
An argument can be made that the team should have invested in a quarterback with this year’s ninth overall draft pick instead of selecting Pat Surtain II. At the same time, Denver clearly knows what it wants its identity to be and has sunk significant assets to realize Paton and Fangio’s vision.

The Detroit Lions already had the league’s worst set of wide receivers before they released Breshad Perriman on Monday.
Granted, Perriman never fully realized the potential that made him the 26th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. But stretches of solid play with the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed how he could positively impact an offense.
Perriman brings legitimate deep speed to any roster. At bare minimum, a defense must account for his ability to stretch the field.
The Lions signed Perriman this offseason to be one of their top two targets, but they never truly gave him an opportunity to seize the spot. He dealt with a hip injury throughout camp, which didn’t help matters.
For now, the Lions will rely on Kalif Raymond to be their speedster. The 5’8″ Holy Cross product doesn’t have the same size as Perriman to work outside the numbers, but he can stack defensive backs. Aside from Raymond, Tyrell Williams and fourth-round rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown should serve as quarterback Jared Goff’s favorite options at wide receiver.
Detroit also traded fifth- and seventh-round picks to the Denver Broncos for wide receiver Trinity Benson and a 2022 sixth-round pick, per Denver 9 News’ Mike Klis.

Jamaal Williams’ decision to sign with the Detroit Lions as a free agent created an opening in the Green Bay Packers’ running back rotation.
Aaron Jones will continue as the lead back, and AJ Dillon should expect a bigger workload after mustering only 46 carries as a rookie. Green Bay entered training camp with a competition for the third spot, which seventh-round rookie Kylin Hill won with the release of Patrick Taylor.
Hill, who ranked third in the SEC in rushing yardage in 2019, took the job thanks to an outstanding performance throughout training camp. According to Pro Football Focus, he graded better than any rookie running back during the preseason, too.
“The biggest thing is his overall instincts,” running backs coach Ben Sirmans told reporters. “As a runner, am I able to anticipate, set blocks up and understand how to go slow and accelerate right at the right time. Plus, he’s really tough and has a great, a great demeanor.”

Tuesday’s deadline came and went and Deshaun Watson is still a member of the Houston Texans organization.
So the 2021 campaign will begin with Watson on the Texans’ active roster, though the franchise clearly wants to move on from its former starting quarterback.
Numerous complications are keeping a deal from happening. Potential suitors won’t be interested in paying a premium—even with heavy contingencies—while Watson faces 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault or misconduct and 10 criminal complaints.
To date, the league hasn’t stepped in as the proceedings remain ongoing, which places the Texans in a bind.
The problem with his retention is twofold. The Texans have to use a roster spot on someone they don’t expect to play. Also, his value decreases as the season wears on, which could then push into next offseason. Either general manager Nick Caserio will have to take less than his current asking price or consider outright releasing the 25-year-old.

Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard had to do something about addressing the team’s edge rush after moving on from Justin Houston and Denico Autry this offseason. The unit always had a ton of talent but lacked consistent producers.
Kemoko Turay, Ben Banogu and Al-Quadin Muhammed all have significant potential. Ballard signed Isaac Rochell in free agency and then drafted Kwity Paye in the first round. Tyquan Lewis is a stout edge-defender who rushes well from the interior.
As a result of these varied skill sets in differing stages of their careers, the Colts kept seven defensive ends.
The Colts’ front is built around All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. He can consistently collapse the pocket and reset the line of scrimmage. He needs help, though.
The Colts have plenty, as long as some of the young options come to play on a weekly basis.

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t done at wide receiver. They haven’t found enough talent for head coach Urban Meyer’s liking, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.
DJ Chark Jr., Marvin Jones Jr. and Tavon Austin are all currently dealing with minor injuries. Jacksonville chose to release Pharoh Cooper, Laquon Treadwell, Phillip Dorsett II, Devin Smith, Jalen Camp, Jeff Cotton Jr., Josh Hammond, Tevin Jones and Collin Johnson.
Travis Etienne’s season-ending foot injury doesn’t help matters since he was supposed to line up as the team’s H-back.
Rookie No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence doesn’t have the best supporting cast at the moment. Jaguars will be continually searching for upgrades at the skill positions.

Travis Kelce may be the NFL’s best tight end, but the Kansas City Chiefs are loaded beyond the first-team All-Pro.
The Chiefs added Blake Bell in free agency to provide depth behind Kelce. Despite being a solid option, Bell may not last as the Chiefs’ second tight end for long.
Kansas City kept four tight ends in total, fifth-round rookie Noah Gray and wide receiver-convert Jody Fortson are capable of being big-time weapons in Andy Reid’s offense.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes told reporters how the Chiefs’ array of tight ends will put opponents in a difficult spot:
“Having those tight ends on the field that can run-block and they can catch, and then the offensive line we’ve built here and how they’ve been able to really run the ball, I think it’s going to put defenses in some very tough positions. They either have to put a lot of big people on the field to stop the run, or they have to find a way to stop those guys like Noah (Gray), Blake (Bell), Travis (Kelce) and Jody (Fortson) who can all catch the ball like a receiver. “

John Brown made life a little easier on the Las Vegas Raiders by requesting his release, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
“There’s great competition at the wide receiver position,” offensive coordinator Greg Olson told reporters Friday. “That’ll probably be the most difficult decision, will be making the cuts at the wide receiver position.”
Brown’s request shouldn’t be a major surprise since he fell down the depth chart. However, the Raiders aren’t entirely settled at wide receiver.
Las Vegas clearly has talent at the position, but it’s still waiting on Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards to blossom and take over as the top targets. Hunter Renfrow will work out of the slot.
Brown saw a dwindling role with fellow veterans Zay Jones and Willie Snead IV potentially taking reps away from him. The Raiders will continue to move forward with their young starting options while Brown can now look for a new opportunity elsewhere.

Michael Badgley served as the Los Angeles Chargers’ primary kicker for the last three seasons. But he struggled last season, and the Chargers brought in competition this offseason to challenge for the job.
Tristan Vizcaino came into training camp with three career regular-season field goal attempts. However, he wound up winning the job, as the Chargers released Badgley on Tuesday.
Vizcaino might be untested, but change seemed necessary. Special teams issues have long plagued the Chargers.
Badgley was once a bright spot, but he became a point of contention due to his inconsistency. Last season, he tied for 27th overall with a 72.7 conversion rate on field-goal attempts. He missed three extra-point attempts as well.
Head coach Brandon Staley and special teams coordinator Derius Swinton decided to let competition help them make their decision at kicker.

The Los Angeles Rams finished No. 1 overall in total defense last season despite deficiencies at the linebacker position.
As good as the defensive front and secondary played, the two groups lacked the connective tissue from the LBs to be even better. Part of the problem stemmed from a lack of athleticism along the second line.
Micah Kiser is a smart and instinctive linebacker. In fact, he tied for third on the team last season with 77 total tackles in only nine games. Kiser is a physical downhill plugger. He’s a base linebacker who struggles in space. As such, the Rams chose to keep others at linebacker.
Kenny Young will be the team’s primary inside linebacker and often paired with Troy Reeder. Third-round rookie Ernest Jones is the one to watch at this position. The 21-year-old already had an opportunity to serve as the defensive signal-caller during preseason.
“I take pride in being that guy in the middle,” Jones told reporters. “That’s always what I wanted to be. That’s just who I am.”

Over the last two offseasons, the Miami Dolphins have invested plenty in their offensive line, which will be crucial to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s development.
Left tackle Austin Jackson is a 2020 first-round pick. The organization invested in guards Robert Hunt and Solomon Kindley during the same draft class. Miami quadrupled-down by grabbing tackle Liam Eichenberg with this year’s 42nd overall pick.
Center remained unsettled, though. The team signed Matt Skura and Cameron Tom this offseason, but both were cut.
The Dolphins could afford to do this because Michael Deiter took control of the position, and a trade for Greg Mancz from the Baltimore Ravens helped settle things.
For a quarterback to realize his full potential, he must be comfortable working in the pocket. Miami has built up its offensive front, with the final piece finally falling into place to help Tagovailoa.

The Minnesota Vikings addressed two key positions before Tuesday’s deadline.
First, they chose Kellen Mond to be Kirk Cousins’ backup and released Jake Browning. Mond committed multiple turnovers during his preseason appearances, but they spent a third-round pick on him in April. Everyone within the organization understands he is a developmental prospect with the potential to start down the road.
“Honestly, Mond needs to pick up the tempo. Everything is slow-motion, a little bit, but he did make some good throws today, I thought, and moved out of the pocket a couple of times,” head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters two weeks ago. “He needs a bunch of experience, so he’s going to get a lot of reps in this preseason.”
Minnesota also found help on offense after tight end Irv Smith Jr. suffered a meniscus injury, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. The team traded for New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon, according to Ian Rapoport.

Mac Jones, the fifth first-round quarterback selected in this year’s NFL draft, will be the New England Patriots’ Week 1 starter after they released Cam Newton on Tuesday.
Performance, system fit and locker room presence all played a part. Fellow quarterback Brian Hoyer told reporters that Jones immediately fit into the Patriots’ culture.
“I definitely think that he has taken every opportunity and taken advantage of it. That’s the one thing I would say—not many rookie quarterbacks have ever gotten the reps and the opportunity that he has, and he has embraced it full-on, head-on.
“He goes out there every day and does the best that he can and has earned the respect of his teammates, which I think is huge, especially being a young guy with a team with a lot of veteran guys who have played here. He has earned that respect by his preparation and his play.”
Newton was never an ideal fit for the Patriots. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had to adjust his system last season in an attempt to maximize the former MVP’s talents.
Jones is a traditional pocket passer, which the franchise seems to prefer after 20 years with Tom Brady behind center. Plus, New England saves $1.9 million by going with Jones now and releasing Newton.

Tuesday’s roster cutdown only magnified New Orleans’ issues at corner.
The team retained just three CBs. Granted, C.J. Gardner-Johnson is a safety only in title. The third-year defensive back is most often found covering the slot.
The Saints didn’t have the financial flexibility this offseason to keep Janoris Jenkins. Patrick Robinson surprised many when he decided to retire in the middle of training camp.
Aside from Marshon Lattimore, the only Saints officially listed as corners are Ken Crawley and third-round rookie Paulson Adebo. Lattimore is a standout cover corner, but he still has pending legal issues.
Somewhere, somehow New Orleans must acquire depth at the premium position. General manager Mickey Loomis should be looking everywhere to build out his secondary, whether through the waiver wire, a trade or free-agent signing.

The New York Giants had to upgrade their pass rush this offseason, but they didn’t do so as effectively as possible.
Second-round rookie Azeez Ojulari should give New York a speedy edge-rusher with massive potential. Lorenzo Carter is also returning from a ruptured Achilles tendon, and the Giants should expect more from 2019-third rounder Oshane Ximines, too.
General manager Dave Gettleman also attempted to bolster the Giants’ pass rush in free agency by signing Ifeadi Odenigbo to a one-year, $2.5 million deal.
The 27-year-old managed 10.5 combined sacks over the last two seasons, but he never appeared to be a fit in the Giants’ defensive scheme. He’s better off working from a three-point stance and reducing inside to maximize his pass-rushing potential.
Instead of finding ways to utilize Odenigbo, the Giants released him with their pass rush still in question.

After the New York Jets traded Chris Herndon to the Minnesota Vikings and released Ryan Griffin, Kenny Yeboah and Dan Brown, one has to wonder who they’ll even start at tight end.
Tyler Kroft and Trevon Wesco are the two men left standing after Tuesday’s moves. The Jets’ relative lack of talent at the position will hamper their offensive scheme.
Tight ends are often featured in wide-zone-heavy offenses because they can contribute in both the run and pass games. They’re typically a focal point like George Kittle in San Francisco, where both head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur recently left.
Maybe Kroft returns to his 2017 form, when he caught 42 passes and seven touchdowns with the Cincinnati Bengals. That seems like a stretch, though.
Instead, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will be forced to rely heavily on his revamped wide receiver corps. The trio of Corey Davis, Jamison Crowder and second-round rookie Elijah Moore should dominate the Jets’ target share.

The Philadelphia Eagles made it a point to turn over their wide receiver corps from last season.
General manager Howie Roseman released veterans DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery in March. The Eagles then traded up in the first round to draft reigning Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith with the 10th pick.
On Tuesday, they surprisingly released Travis Fulgham, their leading receiver from last year.
Fulgham is only 25 and showed promising flashes during the 2020 campaign. He erupted for 435 receiving yards and four touchdowns in his first five games.
The Eagles will now feature Smith and 2020 first-round pick Jalen Reagor as their main receivers. Greg Ward emerged as a reliable and versatile option last season as well.
Still, Fulgham probably needed a longer look considering the state of the Eagles’ receiving corps. Instead, the team chose to part ways with him now instead of later.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a 39-year-old starting quarterback who underwent major elbow surgery less than two years ago. Questions about their offensive line aren’t going away anytime soon, either.
That makes their backup quarterback position more important than perhaps any other team’s.
It appears as though 2019 No. 15 overall pick Dwayne Haskins will serve in that role, as he “is expected to make the initial roster in Pittsburgh,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
“I feel like I’ve done a great job just showing that I’m coachable,” Haskins told reporters after the Steelers’ preseason finale. “Showing that I’m wanting to learn, wanting to get better. Just trying to put things on film that are something that I can showcase what I can do.”
A lack of maturity became an issue early in Haskins’ career, which led to his release from the Washington Football Team. If Haskins is now showing more of a commitment to football and his team, he could become a vital part of the Steelers as Roethlisberger’s eventual heir apparent.

Last season, the San Francisco 49ers tied for the league’s 13th-most punt returns. The unit finished 14th in average yards per return and 15th in total punt return yardage.
Mediocre best describes San Francisco’s effort in that phase of the game. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch didn’t prioritize the position this offseason, either.
As The Athletic’s Matt Barrows noted, the Niners released all four players who handled preseason punt-return duties (Travis Benjamin, Richie James, River Cracaft and Nsimba Webster). Barrows added that Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu both practiced with the special teams unit during training camp.
Coaching staffs don’t always like to place one of their top receivers back as a returner for fear of potential injury. But in this particular case, Aiyuk may be the best option to add a spark as the 49ers’ punt returner.

The Seattle Seahawks are rather lean at wide receiver after their final roster cuts. Well, lean and mean might be a better description of a group that features DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
Beyond the team’s top two targets, Freddie Swain and 2021 second-round pick D’Wayne Eskridge may be the only two keepers since the team surprised with its release of Penny Hart.
“You can count on him in a lot of ways,” head coach Pete Carroll said of Hart during the team’s mandatory minicamp. “Running his routes right, knowing the offense, [playing] multiple positions, contributing on special teams, his toughness, the attitude that he is is obvious.”
Maybe the Seahawks want another veteran receiver. Or they could be surfing the waiver wire to add another target. Whatever the case, Hart ended up not making the cut despite seeming like a lock for the final 53-man roster.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can try, but they can’t keep every talented player on their roster. So goes the life of the reigning Super Bowl champions.
For the most part, the Buccaneers did an excellent job retaining their top talent. Somehow, general manager Jason Licht worked a near-miracle by bringing Lavonte David, Ndamukong Suh, Shaquil Barrett, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski and Leonard Fournette back for another run.
The big names are important, but so are role players.
Tight end Tanner Hudson caught only three passes last season, but he played in 11 games. He’s a natural receiver when given the chance.
However, the Buccaneers are loaded at tight end with Gronk, Cameron Brate and the returning O.J. Howard. Hudson became expendable after struggling with his blocking.
A team in need of a receiving threat at tight end (perhaps the New York Jets?) should jump at the opportunity to acquire the 26-year-old.

Fourth-round wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick becomes the highest-drafted player from this year’s class not to make his respective team’s Week 1 active roster.
The Tennessee Titans traded fourth-, fifth- and seventh-round picks to obtain the 109th overall selection from the Carolina Panthers and choose the Louisville product.
Tennessee’s coaching staff wants a certain mentality from its young players. Fitzpatrick didn’t necessarily show those qualities.
“But there were just some other examples last night of finishing or playing when you don’t have the football in your hand that we have a high expectation for our receivers, whether that’s on a screen or somebody else catches the football and you’re trying to do everything you can to get them as most yards as possible,” head coach Mike Vrabel said after Tennessee’s third preseason contest (h/t Fansided’s Geoffrey Knox).
The Titans have taken some legitimate chances with their recent draft choices. Tennessee’s investment in Jeffery Simmons paid off handsomely. Isaiah Wilson’s selection turned into a disaster. Fitzpatrick falls closer to the latter end of the spectrum, even though he wasn’t a first-round choice. The trade up to get him looks awful in retrospect.
Fortunately, Tennessee has Julio Jones and A.J. Brown. The Titans passing game should be just fine.

Jimmy Moreland became the Washington Football Team’s primary nickel corner after they selected him with a seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft. He held down the spot for the past two seasons, but Washington released him Tuesday, per Ben Standig of The Athletic.
Moreland’s release, along with that of safety Jeremy Reaves, signifies the depth Washington has in its secondary.
Safety Kamren Curl and cornerback Kendall Fuller are both capable slot defenders. Fifth-round rookie Darrick Forrest also flourished in that role in college. According to Pro Football Focus, Forrest allowed an impressive 38.3 quarterback rating when covering the slot last season.
Fuller, William Jackson III and third-round rookie Benjamin St-Juste form a talented cornerback trio. Troy Apke is a special teams standout. And Torry McTyer earned a spot after an impressive effort throughout training camp and the preseason.
2021 NFL roster cuts tracker: Here’s every cut from all 32 teams after initial rosters trimmed to 53 players
The NFL’s cutdown deadline has come and gone, as every NFL team has trimmed their roster down from 80 to 53 players in preparation for the 2021 regular season which begins on Sept. 9. Cam Newton’s release was the headliner, but there were plenty of other notable team moves from what was an active Tuesday around the NFL.

LA Clippers news: Isaiah Hartenstein earns the Clippers’ final roster spot
Prior the start of training camp, Lawrence Frank had said that Isaiah Hartenstein, Harry Giles, and Moses Wright would be competing for the third center role, with Amir Coffey also in the mix for the 15th spot on the roster.
As the preseason went on, it became clear that the center competition would really come down to Hartenstein vs. Giles, and on Saturday, the Clippers made their decision, waiving Giles and keeping Hartenstein. With Serge Ibaka still progressing in his recovery from back surgery, Hartenstein will be the backup center to start the season.
“It was tough because Harry was great,” Ty Lue said before practice Saturday. “Harry did a lot of great things and, you know, he’s definitely an NBA player, I mean, we know that for sure. And we thought Isaiah did a good job as well, you know, so it was a tough decision. Hate to see Harry go because he did some great things for us, like I said, and he’s more advanced than some of our young guys, but it just, it’s tough when you got to come down to the situation when you got to make cuts and, you know, like I said, he’s an NBA player for sure…. But happy for Isaiah as well. He did a good job, he played well, kind of came in and fit in right away with his passing and being able to get guys shots and backdoor cuts for layups and things like that, so they both played well, it was a tough decision. ”
The Clippers have been raving about Hartenstein’s passing throughout the preseason, and Lue confirmed that it dates back even further than that. The coach said that Paul George and Luke Kennard were calling him about Hartenstein during their pickup games over the summer, and the Clippers video coordinator Daniel Fitzpatrick even cut up some film from those runs for Lue to take a look at before the team signed Hartenstein.
Hartenstein credits some of that passing flair to lessons he learned from Nikola Jokić during his time in Denver. But for the 23-year-old center, the reason he fits in Los Angeles is because the Clippers let him play free.
“I came out here for a little bit before I made my decision and it was great,” Hartenstein said Saturday. “The organization, top to bottom, the way they played, T-Lue just letting the guys play free. I think that was one of the biggest things for me, was just finding someone that also lets me play my game. I think with Denver and the Rockets I was really looking over my shoulder every game, and it’s hard to play like that, and so now being in a situation where I can just play my game and do whatever the team needs to win.”
As a former role player himself, Lue says he’s been in situation where he felt like he was walking on eggshells and unable to make mistakes. Now, he encourages his players to play hard and compete and not worry about turnovers or missed shots. Make the right play, and you won’t get pulled, even if it doesn’t result in a score.
That style of play brought Hartenstein to Los Angeles, even when he had a guaranteed contract in Cleveland. He declined his player option with the Cavaliers because it wasn’t the right fit. Even though he had to take a risk to compete for a spot with the Clippers, this is a better spot for him.
“I’ve always been confident in my abilities,” Hartenstein said. “I think I’m a good center in the NBA, and that was one reason why I didn’t want to stay in Cleveland even though they treated me really well out there. I just wanted to be in a situation where I could play and really have a chance to prove myself.”
Hartenstein is officially a Clipper, and he’ll have to start proving himself when the regular season tips off this week.
Minnesota Wild make final roster cuts, send Rossi, Beckman, Addison to AHL
This morning, the Minnesota Wild announced their final cuts to their training camp roster.
Among those cut were defenseman Calen Addison and forwards Adam Beckman and Marco Rossi. While many Wild fans are disappointed to see three of their top prospects going down to Iowa, the preseason proved that the roster is competitive enough to allow them to take their time in their development path.
After his superb camp, Adam Beckman will return to Iowa as likely the first forward to receive a call up. He will look to round out his defensive game, physical presence, and work on the transition to a professional schedule. Marco Rossi, after having a good camp as well, will look to continue his impressive return after an 18-month hiatus due to a severe case of myocarditis. Calen Addison’s camp was one with very high and low points and will look to improve his defensive play and consistency. It would be far from a surprise if he gets significant amounts of games this year.
According to Michael Russo, the two forwards handled the news well. There has been no word on how any conversation between Guerin and Addison went, but reports have emerged that he shaved his mustache.
Guerin said Beckman and Rossi took their conversation really well, but Duhaime took it “REALLY WELL.”— Michael Russo (@RussoHockey) October 9, 2021
After months of scrutinized projection, South Florida native and Providence College alum Brandon Duhaime has won the coveted final forward spot. His camp was nothing short of great and he definitely won the respect of many Wild fans over its course. He will bring physicality and speed to the Wild’s forward unit.
Guerin on Duhaime: “he means business. He’s ready.”— Michael Russo (@RussoHockey) October 9, 2021
One notable remainder on the Wild’s roster is top prospect Matt Boldy. He suffered a fractured ankle in the Wild’s overtime victory against Chicago on Thursday night and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. He will remain on the Wild’s roster but will be earning an AHL salary while he is injured.
After one final preseason game tonight, the Wild will head to Duluth for a practice and team bonding. After the trip concludes, the Wild will head to California for their season debut Friday night against the Ducks.
Examining Warriors’ many options for final spot on NBA roster
The Warriors will start training camp shortly, with the 15th spot on their active roster still up for grabs.
In past seasons, the Warriors have elected to leave the spot open for potential additions during the season after the buyout deadline, but this roster does not have the same luxuries as previous editions.
As it stands, the Warriors will be without Klay Thompson for the first couple months of the season, and will also have two young, inexperienced rookies filling up roster spots. If Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody are not ready to successfully contribute in NBA games, that leaves the Warriors with 11 players on the active roster they can reasonably rely on.
For a team that has dealt with a plethora of injuries and ailments over the last couple of years, it would seem as if the Dubs could use an extra man on the roster for depth.
The Warriors’ front office and coaching staff clearly believe their guard depth could use some help, based on the players they have been bringing in for workouts. In the past couple of weeks, the Warriors have worked out guards Darren Collison and Ryan Arcidiacono, and according to HoopsHype, plan to bring in former star Isaiah Thomas soon.
Of these three guards, Collison could bring the most to this current roster if he resembles anything like the player he was when he last played during the 2018-19 season. The now 34-year-old point guard shot over 42 percent from 3-point range over his final fours years in the league, with an efficient 5.1-to-1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio. Collison also was a solid defender at points in his career. Counting on a player in his mid-30’s that has not played in the NBA for over two years could be a blind bet, but should the Warriors discover that he has some game left in the tank, the basketball fit is obvious.
Meanwhile, the oft-injured guard Thomas can be a flamethrower scorer off the bench when right, which is something the Warriors definitely can use. However, due to his size and physical limitations, he has been one of the worst defenders in the NBA over his career and is unlikely to be any better at this point. Arcidiacono is an above-average shooter from deep and a high motor player, but he does not necessarily excel in any other particular part of the game.
Two players the Warriors are more familiar with, Gary Payton II and Mychal Mulder, have the inside track at the 15th spot as of now. Payton II can bring the defensive energy to hound opposing guards, and already has learned the Warriors’ system. Assuming the 15th player on the roster will not get many minutes is the likeliest scenario, so someone like Payton II could be the right guy to bring that jolt of defensive fire in small doses.RELATED: Warriors must consider Gasol if NBA interest lingers
Mulder, on the other hand, is the player the Warriors know the best and has provided solid shooting in his brief NBA career. Unlike the other players mentioned before, he is not a ball-handler or playmaker, so if the Warriors decide they simply want another floor spacer, then he is the most likely candidate. Mulder, unlike the other players mentioned before, does have the option to sign with the Warriors on their final two-way spot should he not find an NBA roster spot elsewhere.
The Warriors definitely will monitor the intentions of recently bought-out big man Marc Gasol as well. Should he decide he would like to return to the NBA, the fit is obvious between him and the Warriors, and there likely would be interest between both parties. If the Warriors decide to go the route of adding a front-court player for their final roster spot, they almost assuredly would look to add another guard to their final two-way spot, to go along with point guard Chris Chiozza.
One other veteran point guard addition the Warriors could entertain, though there have not been any reports of their interest, is Jeff Teague. The 33-year-old free agent played well off the bench for the champion Milwaukee Bucks last season but has yet to sign with a team this offseason.

“As we said a week ago, there will be changes in the expanded list. After the matches of the 9th round in the RPL and the games of the European championships, the coaching staff settled on 22 field players.From the point of view of the training process, this is the optimal number of field players.

September 20 15:53
Goalkeeping coach Vitaly Kafanov, in turn, explained why the goalkeeper of Bayer Leverkusen Andrey Lunev was included in the final application, despite the fact that he has no playing practice in his team.
I am convinced that the lack of playing practice can be replaced in the training process, if the goalkeeper goes to every training session as the most important match of his life, if in every playing situation he acts like in a game. If we also take into account that the level of partners in Bayer is very high, then there is no doubt that Andrei is in good condition today and is ready to play for the national team ”,
– the press service of the national team reports the words of Kafanov.
Former Rostov coach Yuri Semin supported the call to the team of Denis Glushakov and Alexey Miranchuk.
“Glushakov plays well in defense. Experienced players are also needed in the squad.
In a team, especially in a team like Atalanta, there is too much competition, they have their own requirements, and Valery Karpin has his own. For the first time Miranchuk didn’t play two games in a row, and so he constantly enters the field, so his challenge is absolutely the right decision, ”Semina TASS said.

Valery Karpin, head coach of the Russian national team:
– There are 41 players on the extended list. In previous times, before the September and October matches, the list was shorter. What is the reason for this?
– This is due to the fact that even those extended lists that we published before the matches in September and October, the coaching staff had to adjust.After the announcements, the players played two or three more matches, some were injured. Therefore, this time we decided to publish such, let’s say, a very extended list, which will then be adjusted to the final one. It should also be borne in mind that some players are just starting to leave this list after injuries, there are also players who “hang” on yellow cards in the national team and may miss the match with Croatia due to disqualifications. Considering all these nuances, we decided to give such a large list.
– It is also interesting that there are seven new surnames in the expanded list.
– Since this list is very extended, there are also beginners. The coaching staff monitors all players who can help the national team.
– How many players will be on the final roster and when will it be announced?
– As usual, there will be 26-27 players on the final list. We will announce it on November 1 at a press conference in the RFU building.
– In October, Artyom Dziuba refused an invitation to the training camp.Now his name is not among the invited players. Is it a decision of the coaching staff or Artyom again made the decision not to go to the national team?
– This is the decision of the coaching staff.
– Did you or the members of the coaching staff communicate with Artyom now?
– Tell us, please, about the national team’s preparation schedule – where will the team prepare for the matches with Cyprus and Croatia?
– On November 7-8, the Russian national team will gather in St. Petersburg and begin training.The trainings will take place at the Petrovsky stadium and the Gazprom Arena, and we will live in a hotel in St. Petersburg. Departure to Split is scheduled for November 13.
Vitaly Kafanov, goalkeeper coach:
– The extended list includes five goalkeepers. How many of them will remain in the final?
– At the moment there are no doubts about the candidacy of Matvey Safonov and Marinato Guilherme. As for the final list, it will be announced a week later, on November 1.
Two rounds before the end of the qualifying cycle, the Russian team is leading in Group H, securing at least second place and participation in the playoffs. Valery Karpin’s team has 19 points after 8 matches. In second place, two points behind, is the Croatian national team, with which our team will play in the final match.
“I hope Agalarov will become the first Dagestani to make the final squad of the national team”
Shamil Lakhiyalov: “I hope Agalarov will become the first Dagestani to make the final squad of the national team”
President of Legion-Dynamo Shamil Lakhiyalov commented on Hamid Agalarov’s inclusion in the extended squad of the Russian national team for the October matches.
– Karpin’s decision to invite Agalarov to the national team is logical. He deserved to be there with his game and his goals. I think at this stage Hamid played stronger than Tyukavin and deserves to be in the main team more. I hope he will be the first Dagestani to make the final list. The person shows the result, and this is what the team needs. He does his job well. Russia needs a striker who scores goals. Age, I think, does not matter for Karpin. Yes, he showed himself in the domestic championship, but now everyone can show himself only there.Therefore, the chances are equal, and Agalarov shows himself better than anyone else, ”Lakhiyalov said.
The coaching staff of the Russian national team, headed by Valery Karpin, on Monday announced the expanded composition of the national team for the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup.
On October 8, in the qualifying match for the 2022 World Cup, the Russians under the leadership of Valery Karpin in Kazan will host Slovakia, and then they will play with Slovenia on the road (October 11). After six rounds, the Russian national team with 13 points is in 2nd place in Group H, behind the leading Croatia in goal difference.
