NFL cuts tracker 2020: Live team-by-team roster news, updates before deadline



NFL teams now have fewer than 24 hours to trim their rosters down to 53 players ahead of the 2020 season — a process that resulted in some surprising cuts ahead of Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline.

Some notable players who have already been cut include Dallas safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Washington running back Adrian Peterson and Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette. Some of those cuts have been especially jarring, since the lack of a preseason has ommitted any tells a player might not be working out well for a specific team.

Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline will create opportunity for NFL teams to claim players on waivers before creating their 16-man practice rosters. Until then, however, players will hope to avoid that dreaded call from coaches and GMs.

When is the NFL roster cuts deadline in 2020?

  • Roster cuts deadline: Saturday, Sept. 5
  • Deadline time: 4 p.m. ET

NFL teams are free to cut players whenever they want, but when the deadline of 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 5 arrives, all 32 rosters must consist of no more than 53 players on the active/inactive list. (Teams already had to trim their training camp rosters to a maximum of 80 players by Aug. 16.)

Prior to 2017, teams worked through& multiple roster cut deadlines throughout the preseason to trim their personnel. Then the league’s owners voted to create the format still used today — one deadline to trim rosters to 53 players upon the conclusion of the preseason.

In 2020, of course, there is no preseason, but the lone roster cuts deadline remains the same as originally scheduled. It lands a week before the start of the regular season.

NFL roster cuts rules

In part because there are no preseason games, many teams will have already made the majority of their pre-deadline roster moves and won’t have to cut 27 players at once.

Below is the NFL’s official language on the Sept. 5 roster cuts deadline:

“Prior to 4 p.m., New York time, clubs must reduce rosters to a maximum of 53 players on the Active/Inactive List. … Simultaneously with the cut-down to 53, clubs that have players in the categories of Active/Physically Unable to Perform or Active/Non-Football Injury or Illness must select one of the following options: place player on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform or Reserve/NonFootball Injury or Illness, whichever is applicable; request waivers; terminate contract; trade contract; or continue to count the player on the Active List.”

There will be a claiming period for the players who are placed on waivers during roster cut-downs, but that period will expire at noon ET on Sunday, Sept. 6.

An hour after that claiming period ends, teams will be able to begin constructing their 16-player practice squads. Below is the full schedule for NFL roster cuts/construction.

Date Event
Aug. 16 Deadline to cut training camp rosters to 80 players
Sept. 5 4 p.m. ET deadline to cut rosters to 53 players
Sept. 6 Waiver claim period after cuts ends at noon ET
Sept. 6 Teams can begin signing practice squad players at 1 p.m. ET
Sept. 10 Top 51 rule expires
