NFL teams must cut the roster to 53 men by 9:00 PM ET today. The Redskins will cut more than 22 names to make room for pick-ups from the waiver wire. They wiill be few in number, but we should expect it. None of this is official until it is announced by the team. That will not happen until it clears the league office.
