Cornerback Mike Harris
Wide Receiver Ramses Barden
Linebacker Allen Bradford
Offensive Guard Antoine Caldwell
Linebacker Josh Hull
Fullback Harvey Unga
Safety Joe Young
Center Patrick Lewis

‚ÄúThis is always a tough day when you have to make these decisions. We appreciate all the work these men did into the building of our team. They came to practice every day and competed. We wish them nothing but the best in the future.” – GM David Caldwell

Two rookies also got some bad news on Sunday, long snapper Charley Hughlett and wide receiver Kenny Shaw have also been released.
