Each year there are teams looking to cut salary during the trade deadline. When they are unable to find a partner, several players end up on the cutting room floor. This year is no exception. The latest decisions on who has to find a new team are right here.
The Chicago Bears have released wide receiver Ted Ginn, per Bears twitter. Ginn has played in six games this season with his 7th team, catching just three passes on six targets for 40 yards. Ginn’s time in the NFL may be finished, he is 35 years old and has only finished one season catching 50% of his targets.

- Vic Beasley has been released from the Tennesse Titans. Beasley signed a one-year, $9.5mil deal with the Titans before the season. Only five years removed from his number 8 overall selection, the pass rusher will certainly look to continue his career elsewhere. Perhaps teams needing defensive depth will pick him up on a short term deal.
- The Buccaneers waived WR Cyril Grayson to make room for Antonio Brown, per Adam Schefter. Grayson has done exactly nothing in his year and a half in Tampa Bay.
- San Francisco has waived wide receiver Dante Pettis. The team took multiple calls on him before the deadline, but due to injuries coach Kyle Shanahan indicated he would not be moved. A partner was never found, Pettis hurt his shoulder last week, and his time with the 49ers is now over.
- The Seattle Seahawks cut tight end Luke Willson. Wilson played in five games this year and did not record a reception. This move allows Seattle to activate rookie Colby Parkinson. Parkinson suffered a fracture in his foot in the offseason and is now recovered after surgery.
