Teams whittled down their rosters prior to Tuesday's deadline -- when each franchise must move from 90 to 75 players -- and some notable names were released.
The 29-year-old offensive lineman signed in Indy in 2013 on a four-year, $14 million deal, but played just two games before tearing his quadriceps. He re-tore the muscle last season.
More notable cuts:
- In a Monday morning stunner, the Buffalo Bills released veteran running back Fred Jackson, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported. It was later confirmed by the team. Jackson has rushed for more than 5,000 yards with 30 touchdowns in eight seasons in Western New York. Don't be surprised to see Jackson find a new team quickly.
- The Detroit Lions will release wide receiver Ryan Broyles, the fourth-year player tweeted Monday morning. A former second-round pick by general manager Martin Mayhew in 2012, Broyles never got a chance to earn his keep due to injury and coaches' decisions. Broyles has sure hands, but a lack of speed meant he struggled to separate from corners. He finished his career in Detroit with 32 catches for 420 yards. Not exactly what the team was hoping from a second-round selection.
- The Cleveland Browns cut defensive tackle Phil Taylor on Tuesday. The veteran was drafted by the Browns in 2011 and played in 44 games over four years, totaling seven sacks. After suffering a knee injury in 2014, Taylor sat out 10 months before taking the field Saturday night in Cleveland's win over the Buccaneers.
