2020 NFL List Cup Tracker: Track every 32 team cup as rosters narrow to final 53

In a year where nothing in the preseason has been normal, one thing is sure to stay the same and it is end day. The annual NFL roster purge still takes place on the Saturday before the first week of the season and this year that won’t change.

The only thing that will change this year is the number of cups that will take place. Due to the pandemic, the NFL decided to hold a cutting day on August 16 that required all teams to reduce their squads to 80 players. This time around, each team will need to reduce their roster to just 53 players, which means nearly 900 players will be released by 4 p.m. ET on Saturday. The good news for anyone who loses a job is that practice squads are expanding to 16 players this year, which means up to 512 of the guys who have lost jobs could be picked up.

In fact, the Jaguars got the ball rolling pretty early this year with cuts when they surprisingly decided to release Leonard Fournette earlier this week (Fournette has already found a new team in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers). Washington followed the trend of dumping veterans by cutting Adrian Peterson off Friday. The Cowboys also made a surprising cut this week when they released Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. There have also been notable cuts in the AFC East. In New England, the Patriots decided to pass Mohamed Sanu while the Bills made the decision to make a switch to the kicker (they dumped veteran Stephen Hauschka, who lost his job to rookie Tyler Bass) .

Besides the discounts, one thing you’ll also notice about Cup Day is that teams love to do a last second trade as there is no reason to let someone go when you can trade them for another. team and get something in return. Over the past five days, we’ve seen several deals dwindle with these deals ranging from huge ones (like the Jaguars shipping Yannick Ngakoue to Minnesota) to smaller deals, like the trade the Bills recently struck with the Panthers that involved exactly one player (Buffalo received LB Andre Smith while Carolina received a seventh-round pick in 2021). Basically, be sure to keep an eye out for your favorite team because while they don’t make any notable cuts, they could end up making a successful trade.
