NFL cuts tracker 2022: Live roster news, updates, notable cuts for all 32 teams


One of the crucial difficult days on the NFL calendar is arriving. The NFL’s 53-man roster deadline this 12 months is 4 p.m. ET on Aug. 30. Teams may have to whittle down a very good chunk of their rosters.

The NFL roster maximum is 80 ahead of cut day. That signifies that each team may need to release as many as 27 players to comply with the NFL’s roster rules. Meaning as many as 864 players could find themselves on the lookout for work because the season is about to start.

The excellent news is that a lot of these players can be signed to practice squad contracts. Each NFL team may have as much as 16 practice squad spots available because of rule changes that were implemented before the 2020 season. That may give lots of the released a minimum of a short lived opportunity to stay with their clubs.

Some players should still land on a 53-man roster even after being cut due to the NFL’s injured reserve rules. If a player is placed on IR before the 53-man roster deadline passes, they’re robotically out for the season; if a player is placed on it after the deadline, they might be activated as soon as three weeks after placement.

So, there can be plenty of roster shuffling even after cut day passes. But for many players, the critical decision will come sooner or later before 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Whether the decision is made immediately after a team’s final preseason game or simply moments before the deadline will depend upon the team.

Below is a full list of roster cuts for all 32 NFL teams because the league’s 53-man roster deadline approaches.
