[Editor’s note: We’re keeping track of the moves as NFC teams make them this weekend, as they have to get to their 53-man roster limit by Saturday at 4 p.m. Due to a rule change this year, there was no interim cut to 75 players so there will be a lot of moves to keep track of this time around. Check back throughout the weekend, as we’ll update throughout.]
