NFL Transactions Update: Veterans cuts are flying in fast and furious

New, comments

We've put together a running tally of the veteran cuts going down in advance of 2015 free agency. If you see news of any cuts, feel free to drop it in here.

NFL free agency does not get going until March 10, with the negotiation period set to start on March 7. In the meantime, there is still plenty of roster news. Teams have been cutting players left and right to clear cap space in advance of the new league year.

With a week to go until the negotiation period gets going, it makes sense to track who has been released, and who will be released in the coming days. I will put together some stand-alone articles on players pertinent to the 49ers interests, but this will serve as a sort of clearinghouse of news on veterans cuts. These players can all be signed immediately, so it makes sense to keep some track of them. If you'd prefer this organized in another manner, let me know.
