Tracking all the 2016 NFL roster cuts for the 75-man deadline


Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

NFL teams have until Aug. 30 to cut rosters down to 75 players.

With the beginning of football season on the way, there also comes the unfortunate end of the NFL dreams of many players.

While all eyes will be on the cut down to the 53-man roster at the beginning of September, teams have to get things started by trimming rosters down from a maximum of 90 players to 75 before the end of August.

Teams have until Aug. 30 to whittle down to 75 players, less than a week before the Sept. 3 deadline to get the rosters to 53. But players who receive the pink slip a few days early typically have a harder time earning a valuable spot on a practice squad. For most players, not earning a spot on a 75-man roster means that getting on another roster at all could be a challenge.
