With rosters needing to be narrowing down to 53, many NFL players are facing the ends of their careers.


Several notable names were released by Saturday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. Here are some of the notable names who were sent packing, as well as a team-by-team look:


QB Tim Tebow, Eagles: Chip Kelly's experiment with Tebow appears to be over, and it's unclear if the QB will get another shot in the NFL.


WR Reggie Wayne, Patriots: The former Colts target's stay in New England was an odd one, as he spent only two weeks with Bill Belichick.


QB Matt Cassel, Bills: Once thought to be the front-runner for the starting QB job, Cassel didn't have a spot on the Bills after losing out to Tyrod Taylor.


DT Devon Still, Bengals: Known for his inspiring fight with daughter Leah on her cancer treatments, Still also added depth to the Bengals' defensive line.


DL Darnell Dockett, 49ers: Dockett was signed this offseason as a replacement for the overhauled defensive line, but the 34-year old didn't make it to the regular season.


RB Jonas Gray, Patriots: Gray famously ran for 199 yards against the Colts last season but quickly worked himself into Belichick's doghouse.


CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Saints: A second-round pick last year, Jean-Baptiste struggled to get on the field despite the Saints' need at CB.


LB Jameel McClain, Giants: McClain started 14 games for the Giants in 2014.


WR James Jones, Giants: The veteran pass catcher should find interest in a market with multiple receiver-needy teams.


OLB Jason Babin, Jets: The 35-year-old pass rusher recorded two sacks for the Jets last year but is back on the market, according to multiple reports.


DT Louis Nix III, Texans: A third-round pick in 2014, Nix never made it to his second season with the Texans. Vince Wilfork and rookie Christian Covington made him expendable.


LB IK Enemkpali, Bills: The defender who gained infamy by punching Jets QB Geno Smith did not make the final roster in Buffalo.


P Steve Weatherford, Giants: Weatherford's four-year stint as the Giants' punter comes to an end after the team acquired Brad Wing from the Steelers via trade.


DE Da'Quan Bowers, Buccaneers: A former second-round pick who struggled to stay healthy, Bowers notched just seven sacks in four seasons with Tampa Bay.


LB Philip Wheeler: Another defensive offseason signing by the 49ers has a short stay with the team.

I'd like us to look into Kaseem Greene and Barrett Jones. Greene was a premier pass rusher coming out. Jones was a four year starter on the Alabama O line that was one of the best college football has ever seen...Jones has played ALL the positions on the O line at Alabama, ending up at center. If Jones has the mobility we want we should look at him.
