Havard Rugland, Detroit Lions Kickalicious, the Norwegian YouTube sensation,
exceeded expectations in Lions' training camp and the preseason, but henever was
a real threat to beat out veteran David Akers and replace the newly-retired
Jason Hanson. Braylon Edwards, New York Jets The Jets re-signed Edwards last
month hoping to add a veteran presence and some depth to their suspect wide
receiver position. But Edwards never showed the ability that made him an impact
player during his 2009 to 2010 run with Rex Ryan. He was working with the
third-team offense before suffering a leg injury last week. The Jets cut Edwards

been cut? More ... Scott Tolzien, San
Francisco 49ers The writing was on the wall for Tolzien after the 49ers signed
Seneca Wallace last week. Tolzien's fate was sealed when he wasn't among four
quarterbacks to play for the Niners in Sunday's preseason win over the Minnesota
Vikings. He never took a regular season-snap in two seasons by The Bay. Giorgio
Tavecchio, Green Bay Packers Brought aboard five months ago to compete with
kicker Mason Crosby, Tavecchio was released after the Packers signed Zach
Ramirez. Tavecchio had a nice camp, making 86 percent of his kicks. Crosby has
outlasted one challenger, but he's not out of the woods yet. Josh Cribbs,
Oakland Raiders Uruguay

After an offseason workout tour, the
special-teamer landed with the Raiders. His surgically repaired knee, however,
just never seemed to come all the way back, and the team parted ways, according
to's Ian Rapoport. The Raiders later confirmed the news.'s
Daniel Jeremiah summed up Cribbs' physical situation best: Josh Cribbs is one of
the toughest football players I've ever been around but he's completely lost his
fastball.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) August 24, 2013 Donte' Stallworth,
Washington Redskins The nomadic wide receiver re-joined the team this summer
after a cameo in New England last year, but there was little chance of him
cracking a deep receiving group in Washington. Dealing with a hamstring injury
didn't help Stallworth's cause.'s Albert Breer reported Stallworth's
release early Monday morning. Joe McKnight, New York Jets The running back/kick
returner's tumultuous stint in New York came to an unceremonious end. McKnight
gained 502 yards on 112 carries, had 76 kick returns for 2,205 yards and fumbled
four times in three seasons. Aaron Curry, New York Giants The Seattle Seahawks'
No. 4 overall draft pick in 2009, Curry appeared in just two games with the
Oakland Raiders last season because of chronic knee troubles. Kenny Phillips,
Phildelphia Eagles A Pro Bowl-caliber safety early in his career, Phillips was a
41-game starter for the Giants from 2008 to 2012, but he has lost a few steps
because of chronic knee injuries. Jamar Chaney, Philadelphia Eagles The
linebacker is better suited to the 4-3 defensive scheme than the 3-4 scheme that
Chip Kelly now is running in Philly. Chaney's release continues the Eagles'
theme of jettisoning defensive players. Graham Harrell, Green Bay Packers
Harrell had an opportunity in the Week 3 preseason matchup with the Seattle
Seahawks, but he was outplayed by Vince Young. Mike McCarthy always spoke highly
of Harrell, but the QB never seemed to blossom. McCarthy did Harrell a slight
favor by clipping him earlier in the process. With the current quarterback
situation on some rosters, Harrell could find another job in short order.
Visanthe Shiancoe, Baltimore Ravens The Ravens terminated the contract of the
tight end less than one month after signing him. Even with Dennis Pitta out for
the season and Ed Dickson struggling to come back from a hamstring
injury,Shiancoecouldn't make it to final cuts. As Chris Wesseling pointed
out,Shiancoestruggled with drops and looked slow in his brief time with the
Ravens. Tom Zbikowski, Chicago Bears Zbikowski started 11 games for the
Indianapolis Colts in 2012. He never seemed to find a burst after signing with
the Bears as a free agent in the offseason. The well-known safety/professional
boxer had an uphill battle from the start just to take a Russia

backup spot. Ricky Stanzi, Kansas City Chiefs Selected
in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Stanzi never threw a regular-season
pass for the Chiefs even though they went through an assortment of quarterback
issues the past two years. Stanzi's inability to beat out the likes of Tyler
Palko, Brady Quinn and undrafted rookie Tyler Bray speaks volumes about his NFL
potential. Lawrence Jackson, Minnesota Vikings The Seattle Seahawks' No. 28
overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, Jackson flashed as a situational pass rusher
a couple years back. The Around The League Podcast is now available on iTunes!
