With less than an hour to deadline, only six teams are at 53

A lot has happened today in the NFL, the annual date on which rosters must get to 53 for the full season.

But a lot more will happen.  Soon.

Only six teams have made it to 53.  That leaves (abacus engaged) 26 teams.

The deadline is 6:00 p.m. ET.  We’ll be here until they’re all posted.

    I don’t remember having to wait this long to see my team cut down. I wouldn’t want to have the job of cutting these guys. Must really suck.

    I wonder if this is the case every year or if this year is particularly hard (as many have feared) for teams to make these decisions with the shortened pre-season…

    If so, this is also the fear many have about shortening the number of pre-season games, as there will be less time to determine who the top 53 are…

    The very worst thing that can happen to everyone that gets cut, is that they will become like us normal people.

    Texans are down to 52 as of a few minutes ago. They cut Maynard and will need a punter.

    Please get Graham!

    And one at 52. The Texans

    Once again, the Eagles have proved that training camp is not really a competition, you can’t outplay Andy and Howie’s draft picks regardless of what you do.

    The Bengals get to 53, if Carson Palmer shows up next week to claim the 11 Mil plus salary, the Bengals either cut someone else to free a spot or cut Palmer, correct?

    And until teams see who’s been cut, they won’t know if they want to pick up someone from another team. Scramble!

    Is there any penalty if a team isn’t down to 53 by 6pm?

    Just got off the site, “Let Bob Fill In Your Family Tree.” Seems we are related so that spot in the family league is no longer open, right cuz? heh

    Judging by the picture you chose, I’m guessing Dean Jones, Buddy Hackett and Michelle Lee will be among the final cuts.

    i’m really suprised that they didn’t add a few roster spots in there negotiation’s. it would be nice to have 58 or 59 guy’s on the roster, not including practice squad.

    I’m as giddy as Rex Ryan in a Pay Less Shoe store!
