We saw an interesting little trend as NFL teams completed 53-man roster cutdowns Saturday.

Teams had until 6 p.m. ET on Saturday to reduce their rosters to a maximum of 53 players. Who was cut?
The Redskins will hold onto Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins, Pat White and Rex Grossman. White is a nice comeback story who gives the Redskins a serviceable Michael Vick doppelgänger as they prepare for their Week 1 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. It will be interesting to see if White sticks around beyond next Monday.
As for the Raiders, they're in line to enter the season with Terrelle Pryor, Matt Flynn and rookies Matt McGloin and Tyler Wilson on their roster. Wilson stuck around despite a dreadful summer in which he fell out of contention for the starting job. His status as a 2013 fourth-round draft pick is the only thing that saved his bacon.
From a pure speculation standpoint, you wonder if Oakland will shop Flynn, who (once again) appears to have been denied entrance into the Starting QB Club.
