UPDATE:

The Seahawks have released OT Wade Smith and CB Terrell Thomas, waived OT Cory Brandon, RB Demitrius Bronson, S Mike Dobson, DE Jackson Jeffcoat, WR Kevin Smith, and CB Thomas Wolfe and waived/injured DT Michael Brooks, LB Horace Miller, and WR David Gilreath. They put LB Heath Farwell on the injured reserve, along with CB A.J. Jefferson, and placed CB Eric Pinkins on the non-football injury list with his foot issue.

This gets the Seahawks' roster down to 75.

********

NFL teams have until Tuesday at 1PM PST to cut their rosters down to 75, and the purge has already started for some. I'm going to be in and out today but I'll try to keep this thread updated with any notables. Go ahead and throw in interesting names in the comments section. A great resource for following cuts is right here.

Former Seahawks' 2013 Draft pick Chris Harper has been released by the Packers. The Seahawks tried to get Harper to the practice squad last year at final cuts, but he was signed to the Niners' active roster. Prior to being cut by Seattle, the 4th rounder hadn't done enough in training camp and the preseason to beat out surprise standout Stephen Williams for the roster, but was subsequently released by San Francisco after a failed conversion to H-back. He'd been the subject of some hype in Green Bay this year but after the Packers drafted two receivers to add to their already stacked corps, the numbers game looked to be an issue for Harper.

Cuts:

Green Bay cut S Charles Clay, CB Antonio Dennard, WR Chris Harper, LB Korey Jones, FB Ina Liaina, QB Chase Rettig, and WR Gerrard Sheppard.

The Bears cut former Seahawks' WR Greg Herd, along with former Cardinal S Adrian Wilson and RB Michael Ford, WR Kofi Hughes, OT Joe Long, CB Derricus Purdy, CB Peyton Thompson, DT Nate Collins, OL Dylan Gandy, QB Jordan Palmer, KR/PR Darius Reynaud, LB Jordan Senn, and S Craig Steltz. Kofi Hughes might be a guy to monitor.

The Dolphins cut TE Michael Egnew, a former 3rd round flame out, but a guy to potentially keep an eye on because of his high level athleticism and because of Cooper Helfet's recent injuries. Miami also cut DB Jalil Brown and DT Micajah Reynolds.

The Eagles cut TE Blake Annen, another SPARQ'd up athlete that ran a 4.41 at 6'5, 250 during the draft process. The Seahawks may give him a look. Philly also cut OL Michael Bamiro, OL Karim Barton, WR Kadron Boone, WR B.J. Cunningham, OL Donald Hawkins, TE Emil Igwenagu, LB Jake Knott, DE Joe Kruger, S Daytawion Lowe, DE Frances Mays, S Davon Morgan, K Carey Spear, and DE Alejandro Villanueva.

The Lions cut G Alex Bullard, G A.J. Dalton, DT Gregory Hickman, RB Steven Miller, DE Kris Redding, and WR Conner Vernon. The Jets cut WR Jacoby Ford, TE Colin Anderson, FB Chad Young, DE Anthony Grady, CB Ras-I Dowling, T Bruce Campbell, LB Steele Divitto, OL Patrick Ford, K Andrew Furney, P Jacob Schum, RB Michael Smith, and OL Markus Zusevics.

The Buccaneers cut LS Jeremy Cain, DT Euclid Cummings, OL Jace Daniels, WR Skye Dawson, OL Jason Foster, DE Ryne Giddins, G R.J. Mattes, WR Eric Page, WR Tommy Streeter, DE Chaz Sutton, QB Alex Tanney, and FB Ian Thompson. The 6'5, 219 pound Streeter is possibly a guy to monitor as a former workout warrior that ran a 4.37 back in 2012.

The Panthers cut WR Tiquan Underwood, WR Toney Clemons, P Jordan Gay, DT Linden Gaydosh, DE Alex Hall, OT Oscar Johnson, WR Marvin McNutt, LB Anthony Morales, WR Kealoha Pilares, and DE Craig Roh.

The Jags cut CB Mike Harris, WR Ramses Barden, LB Allen Bradford, G Antoine Caldwell, LB Josh Hull, RB Harvey Unga, S Joe Young, C Patrick Lewis, DT David Carter, LS Charley Hughlett, and WR Kenny Shaw. Bradford is a former Seahawk and he might be someone to keep an eye on.

The Redskins cut  FB Stephen Campbell, WR Cody Hoffman, LB Jeremy Kimbrough, WR Rashad Lawrence, S Ross Madison, DE Jake McDonough, LB Adrian Robinson, DE Jeremy Towns, and LB Rob Jackson.

The Falcons cut DE Theo Agnew, LB Darin Drakeford, S Tay Glover-Wright, WR Julian Jones, QB Jeff Mathews, LB Walker May, RB Jerome Smith, WR Tramaine Thompson, TE Brian Wozniak, and S Tyrell Johnson.

The Raiders cut TE Kyle Auffray, OT Emmett Cleary, LB Justin Cole, WR Mike Davis, DT Torell Troup, and WR Rashaan Vaughn.

The Broncos cut LB Jamar Chaney, RB Brennan Clay, WR Greg Hardin, LB Jerrell Harris, T Winston Justice, S Charles Mitchell, DT Will Pericak, QB Bryn Renner, DE Chase Vaughn, DT Cody Larsen, RB Jerodis Williams, and WR Greg Wilson.

The Colts cut CB Johnny Adams, CB Qua Cox, G Andre Cureton, G Marcus Hall, CB Kameron Jackson, WR Nu'Keese Richardson, LB Jonathon Sharpe, S David Sims, WR Eric Thomas, WR Tony Washington, and FB Cam White.

The Chiefs cut WR Deon Anthony, DL Jairus Campbell, DT Jermelle Cudjo, WR Weston Dressler, G Otis Hudson, WR Jerrell Jackson, CB Brandon Jones, CB Vernon Kearney, S Jerron McMillian, TE Adam Schiltz, and WR Darryl Surgent.

The Bills cut DT Alan Branch, S Derek Brim, QB Dennis Dixon, P Jake Dombrowski, WR Tori Gurley, S Jajuan Harley, K Dustin Hopkins, DT Damien Jacobs, C Macky MacPherson, WR Chris Summers, G J.J. Unga, and RB Ronnie Wingo. Wingo might be a guy to keep an eye on, and Branch could be a player the Seahawks bring in if they see any major injuries to Tony McDaniel or Kevin Williams.

The Cardinals cut  K Jay Feely, QB Ryan Lindley, OT Max Starks, LB Keenan Clayton, LB JoJo Dickson, C Tommie Draheim, WR Reggie Dunn, LB Derrell Johnson, S Orhian Johnson, WR Kevin Ozier, DT Justin Renfrow, CB Brandon Sermons, and RB Damien Thigpen. Darrell Johnson is aplayer to keep an eye on for the Seahawks.

The Ravens released S Omar Brown, LB Nick DiMarco, P Richie Leone, OT David Mims, CB Marrio Norman, CB Deji Olatoye, LB Austin Spitler, WR LaQuan Williams, WR Mike Willie, RB Cierre Wood, FB Shaun Chapas, and OT Brett Van Sloten.

The Browns released WR Anthony Armstrong, DB Royce Adams, RB Edwin Baker, OL Randall Harris, DB T.J. Heath, DL Cam Henderson, WR Jonathan Krause, OL Ryan Lee, LB Caleb McSurdy, OL Keavon Milton, LB Keith Pough, WR Tim Smith, OL Jeremiah Warren, and TE Martell Webb.

The Vikings released S Brandan Bishop, OT Pierce Burton, CB Derek Cox, WR Andy Cruse, WR Kamar Jorden, WR Erik Lora, OT Kevin Murphy, DT Kheeston Randall, DE Tyler Scott, DE Jake Snyder, TE Kory Sperry, CB Robert Steeples, and WR Ty Walker.

The Titans released LB Kendrick Adams, CB Marc Anthony, DL Lanier Coleman, OL Kevin Danser, OL Tyler Horn, WR Julian Horton, RB Waymon James, CB Micah Pellerin, WR Jaz Reynolds, S Hakeem Smith, WR Derel Walker, and LB Jonathan Willard.

The Patriots released  DT Tommy Kelly, DE Will Smith, LB James Anderson, TE Justin Jones. Kelly already has a visit lined up in Arizona.

The Chargers released T Nick Becton, RB Zach Boren, TE Jake Byrne, WR Brelan Chancellor, LB Adrian Hamilton, WR Micah Hatfield, G Darryl Johnson, TE Ryan Otten, DB Lowell Rose, P Chase Tenpenny, RB Kerwynn Williams. I'd say that Becton, Chancellor, and Otten are all guys to keep an eye on.

The Rams released CB Jarrid Bryant, P Bobby Cowan, T R.J. Dill, WR Jordan Harris, LS Jorgen Hus, FB Kadeem Jones, LB Johnny Millard, WR T.J. Moe, T D.J. Morrell, and LB Pat Schiller.

The Bengals released CB R.J. Stanford, DT Larry Black, S Isaiah Lewis, K Quinn Sharp, and WR Ryan Whalen.

The Cowboys released DE Martez Wilson and FB J.C. Copeland.

The Niners released QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, S D.J. Campbell, TE Kevin Greene, RB Jewel Hampton, P Colton Schmidt, LB Kion Wilson, and WR Devon Wylie.
