NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31889977 How will headline players fare on cut-down day? How+will+headline+players+fare+on+cut-down+day%3F NFL

It's that time of year again. NFL teams must make some tough decisions when paring  their team's roster from 75 players to 53. Which names on the roster bubble could be sent packing? Let's find out. — Ross Jones

Mark J. Rebilas - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-intro_20130829180001966_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-intro_20130829180001966_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31889195 Vince Young Vince+Young NFL

The quarterback has bounced around league, but looked like he had a chance to make the squad in Green Bay. Alas, it was not to be as the Packers cut him on Saturday.

NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890937 Texans QB Case Keenum Texans+QB+Case+Keenum NFL

Keenum is a local legend as the NCAA's all-time leading passer during his days at the University of Houston. Unfotunately for Keenum, the Texans have a consistent backup quarterback in T.J. Yates and it could be tough to overthrow him.

NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891877 Raiders QB Tyler Wilson Raiders+QB+Tyler+Wilson NFL

Although it seemed like the Raiders got tremendous value on draft day by selecting Wilson, rumors have swirled that the team could actually end up cutting the rookie. Wilson has done next to nothing in the preseason and the Raiders reportedly are unimpressed with him.

Kirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G19_20130829175749956_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G19_20130829175749956_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31889976 Chiefs WR A.J. Jenkins Chiefs+WR+A.J.+Jenkins NFL

Look, the Chiefs were hoping a change of scenery would benefit Jenkins as he tries to bounce back from a subpar rookie season in San Francisco. Jenkins must play catch-up as the Chiefs boast an impressive crop of receivers including Donnie Avery, Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster and Devon Wylie.

Ed Szczepanski - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G18_20130829175749955_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G18_20130829175749955_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890925 Packers RB Alex Green Packers+RB+Alex+Green NFL

The Packers spent two draft picks on running backs (Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin) and James Starks has had a productive career in Green Bay. Since DuJuan Harris was placed on the IR, will they keep Green for depth? Nope — he was cut Saturday.

Benny Sieu - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G5_20130829175326916_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G5_20130829175326916_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31889975 Patriots QB Tim Tebow Patriots+QB+Tim+Tebow NFL

Since there is so much debate, let's turn to facts. The Patriots haven't kept three quarterbacks on their active roster in the Bill Belichick era. Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett are entrenched as the starter and backup. Tebow got zero playing time in the third preseason game, which is typically the dress rehearsal. Although he has taken some snaps under center, his play has sputtered. Update: Cut on Saturday.


Tebow takes the high road, thanks Pats

NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31889974 Saints WR Andy Tanner Saints+WR+Andy+Tanner NFL

Wondering just who the hell Andy Tanner is? Yeah, that's a fair question. Tanner has been signed, waived, re-signed and released 33 times, but has a fair shot at finally making an active roster as he's had a very good preseason. Will Sean Payton keep the undersized receiver?

Thomas Campbell - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G12_20130829175622946_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G12_20130829175622946_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891875 49ers QB Colt McCoy 49ers+QB+Colt+McCoy NFL

McCoy was reportedly on the trading block prior to the Niners' third preseason game. Since then, he's received a vote of confidence from head coach Jim Harbaugh, but you can never be too safe. Rookie quarterback B.J. Daniels has a ton of upside.

Kelley L Cox - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G11_20130829175621943_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G11_20130829175621943_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890935 Falcons LB Brian Banks Falcons+LB+Brian+Banks NFL

Although Banks is one of the most inspirational stories of the NFL preseason, only his production on the field will determine his fate in Atlanta. Banks, 28, has relished his opportunity in the NFL but reportedly has been outplayed by fellow linebacker Paul Worrilow. Update: Cut announced on Aug. 30


FOX Sports South: Banks may have future with Falcons

Dale Zanine - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G8_20130829175455938_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G8_20130829175455938_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890933 Redskins QB Pat White Redskins+QB+Pat+White NFL

This one is clear. If the Redskins value White more than veteran quarterback Rex Grossman, he'll make the team. White has been very effective in his limited role and although he has elite athleticism, it's not a lock he wins the third QB job.

Brad Mills - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G10_20130829175454937_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G10_20130829175454937_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890932 Buccaneers RB Peyton Hillis Buccaneers+RB+Peyton+Hillis NFL

Just two years removed from when Hillis graced the cover of Madden '12, the former Chiefs running back could be struggling to make the Bucs. He's currently listed fourth on the depth chart and has dealt with myriad injuries during his career.

Denny Medley - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G7_20130829175454936_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G7_20130829175454936_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890930 Buccaneers DE William Gholston Buccaneers+DE+William+Gholston NFL

The Bucs spent a fourth-round pick on Gholston, a draft pick they acquired when they traded cornerback Aqib Talib to the Patriots. Gholston is among a group of quality defensive ends (Da'Quan Bowers, Adrian Clayborn and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim) who are justifiably guaranteed roster spots and Trevor Scott continues to consistently generate a pass rush. Will there be room for Gholston?

Kim Klement - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G3_20130829175327918_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G3_20130829175327918_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890929 Chargers WR Robert Meachem Chargers+WR+Robert+Meachem NFL

It's no secret that the Chargers got absolutely hosed when they signed Meachem to a four-year, $25.9 million deal. Meachem played sparingly in his first season in San Diego and a report surfaced this offseason that his body is breaking down. If the Chargers weren't so thin at the position, this would be a mere certainty. Update: Cut on Saturday

Christopher Hanewinckel - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G4_20130829175326917_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G4_20130829175326917_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891872 Cardinals RB Ryan Williams Cardinals+RB+Ryan+Williams NFL

Williams was selected 38th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, but injuries have plagued his short career. New general manager Steve Keim doesn't have anything invested in Williams. The Cardinals also signed Rashard Mendenhall in free agency and selected two young running backs in the draft.

Jennifer Stewart - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G1_20130829175326915_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G1_20130829175326915_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891873 Browns LB James-Michael Johnson Browns+LB+James-Michael+Johnson NFL

Local reports have discussed the Browns' situation at linebacker at great length and have said that the team is concerned with its depth at inside linebacker. Johnson is reportedly "nowhere in the plans and is likely to be cut." It would be a steep fall if Johnson was cut as the franchise spent a fourth-round pick on him just a year ago. Update: Cut on Saturday

David Richard - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G2_20130829175326914_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G2_20130829175326914_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890934 Jaguars DE Andre Branch Jaguars+DE+Andre+Branch NFL

Branch, who was the Jaguars' second-round pick in 2012, has been underwhelming in the preseason and hasn't lived up to his expectations in his short career. Would the Jaguars be willing to cut with such a valuable pick so soon?

Kim Klement - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G9_20130829175454935_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G9_20130829175454935_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31890936 Steelers RB Felix Jones Steelers+RB+Felix+Jones NFL

Jones was already cut once this offseason by the Eagles. Well, the former first-round pick could be sent packing even though the Steelers don't have overall great depth at the running back position.

Charles LeClaire - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G14_20130829175622944_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G14_20130829175622944_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891876 Bengals S Taylor Mays Bengals+S+Taylor+Mays NFL

The former 49ers second-round pick is on the roster bubble and won the starting job out of camp last season, but was benched. Mays has been in a position battle with Jeromy Miles as the final safety and the latter may offer more value as a special teams player.

Andrew Weber - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G17_20130829175748953_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/08/29/082913-NFL-players-who-could-be-cut-TV-G17_20130829175748953_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 43 NFL players on the roster bubble: Will they stay or go? 31891878 Bears WR Earl Bennett Bears+WR+Earl+Bennett NFL

Bennett was reportedly on the trade block, which is typically a sign a player's days are numbered. Bennett has dealt with injuries through camp, but if released should find a new home soon.
