Christian Hackenberg (Bengals)

Saeed Blacknall and Jason Cabinda (Raiders)

Carl Nassib was the biggest surprise to see on the cut list, as he was an occasional contributor for the Browns in 2017, but Tampa Bay had the foresight to snap him up from waivers. Seeing Grant Haley (called a “fan favorite”) on the Giants’ list is especially disappointing. Jordan Lucas being traded from the Dolphins to the Chiefs for a 2020 draft pick was an interesting move. Lucas has been referred to as a “menace on special teams.” Apparently, people were also surprised that Matt McGloin was released (Not me).

This time next week, we’ll be talking about these players and their performances in real games!
