Third-year defensive back Bennett Jackson, a 2014 sixth-round draft choice who missed each of the past two years after undergoing knee surgery, was waived.

Also released were running back Marshaun Coprich; wide receivers K.J. Maye and Kadron Boone; cornerback Joe Powell; offensive lineman Shane McDermott; defensive tackles Davon Coleman and Greg Milhouse and defensive end Mike Rose.

Tight end Ryan Malleck, a rookie free agent, was waived/injured.
