Saturday saw several teams go down to the wire making cuts. Sunday was all about teams sifting through the debris to see what they could find on the waiver wire.

Here are the notable moves teams around the league made to their ever-changing rosters:

1. Quarterback DeShone Kizer has been claimed by the Oakland Raiders, the team announced. Kizer was waived by the Packers Saturday. The addition temporarily gives the Raiders three backup options for Derek Carr: Kizer, Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman, which should make for an interesting new few days.

2. The Arizona Cardinals added defensive end Jonathan Bullard, defensive backs Kevin Peterson and Charles Washington and offensive linemen Justin Murray and Brett Toth, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
