2017 NFL Waiver Claims Following Roster Cuts To 53

NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to 53 active players on Friday and because the league did away this year with the intermediate cut-down to 75 players after the third week of the preseason, several predicted it would lead to a large amount of waiver claims on Sunday. In short, it did.

According to the NFL’s Sunday transaction report, 44 players who were waived on Saturday were claimed by other teams and you can see that full list below.

By my count, only 13 of those 44 players claimed off waivers Sunday were true rookies. Of those 13, only three were draft picks this year with the other 10 going undrafted.

In a future post, I will attempt to compile all of this year’s draft picks who were waived Saturday that went unclaimed.

    Really curious to know if Brian Allen would have been scooped up. Glad we don’t have ro find out though bets are off when Sutton comes back.

  • Jeff Anoble

    Just looking at the average players that were scooped up there is a real good chance he would have been and I think the Steelers thought so too. You know you have a bad roster when you can afford to claim 5 players each like the Browns, Jags, and Colts have done. And it is interesting that only 3 actual 2017 draft picks were claimed.

    I was just thinking the same thing… 🙂

    Hah Matt Jones released by the Skins. I remember quite a few of us wanted to draft him instead of Sammie Coates.

    Looking back at that draft we picked Golson at 56th, why didn’t we try to trade up before the Bills take Ronald Darby at 50th pick. I know the 47th pick was available to be traded because the Dolphins traded it away to the Eagles for two 5th round picks.

    Were we still looking for zone CB’s or were we already considering going to man 2 years ago? If so we missed big time on Darby.

    Which team lost most of their own players in this process?
    It would not surprise me if it were the Patriots.

  • Mr. Goodkat

    How bad is Bucky Hodges injury? Vikings waived him injured after signing Blake Bell.

    Hodges intrigues me more than Grimble at this point…
