The team also placed OL Maurice Hurt on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.

On Friday, the team terminated the contract of CB Ryan Mouton from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement and waived LB Roddrick Muckelroy from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement.

Of the departed players, seven spent time with the organization last season, with Gomes leading the way with three starts at safety.

With the healthy return of Branond Meriweather and the emergence of Bacarri Rambo, Gomes' spot became expendable.

The remaining roster includes four quarterbacks, five wide receivers, three offensive tackles, five offensive guards, one center, four tight ends, one fullbacks and four running backs on offense.

On defense, the team has five defensive ends, two nose tackles, five outside linebackers, four inside linebackers, five cornerbacks, five safeties.

The team sports the same three specialists from last year.
