Players who managed to escape the Turk on Saturday's roster cutdown deadline realize they can't sleep easily with the waiver-wire bonanza coming on Sunday.
Other notable players claimed off waivers Sunday:
D.J. Williams and Clay Harbor, Jacksonville Jaguars tight ends:Jaguars general manager David Caldwell took full advantage of his early waiver spot, claiming a pair of versatile tight ends. More of a smallish H-back type, Williams was a fifth-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2011 after winning the John Mackey Award at Arkansas. Harbor recorded 47 receptions for 421 yards in three seasons as Brent Celek's sidekick. Harbor also saw time at wide receiver in Philadelphia Eagles training camp this summer before getting cut Saturday.
Stephen Burton and Winston Guy, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver and safety: Caldwell stayed busy, claiming Burton, the former Vikings wide receiver who is coming off his most promising August since he was selected in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft. A 2012 sixth-rounder, Guy was on the Seahawks' practice squad when Jags coach Gus Bradley was running Seattle's defense last season.
Dezman Moses and James-Michael Johnson, Kansas City Chiefs linebackers: Undrafted out of Tulane, Moses generated rave reviews in minicamps and training camp before tallying four sacks with the Packers last season. It's no surprise that general John Dorsey, a former Packers executive, is taking a flier on Moses. Johnson was a fourth-round pick by the Browns last year.
MarQuies Gray, Cleveland Browns tight end: One of the 49ers' final cuts, Gray was in high demand on waivers. Coach Rob Chudzinski referred to the former Minnesota quarterback and wide receiver Sunday as a "heck of an athlete." At nearly 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Gray is likely ticketed for an H-back role in Cleveland. The Browns also claimed running backs Bobby Rainey and Dennis Johnson off waivers.
