New Orleans Saints

San Francisco 49ers

49ers Waive C Jeremy Zuttah

Jeremy Zuttah‘s time in San Francisco did not last long. The center has been waived, per an announcement from the 49ers. In a related move, the team signed linebacker Sean Porter."<strong

Zuttah will now seek his third team of the offseason. In March, the Ravens decided to waive Zuttah before a last-minute call from the Niners turned the transaction into a trade. At the time, Zuttah was expected to slot in as the team’s starting center.

Apparently, Zuttah did not meet expectations. Daniel Kilgore now profiles as the team’s new starter while Tim Barnes, who previously served as the Rams’ starting center for multiple seasons, should be his primary backup.

Zuttah was the Ravens’ starter in the middle from 2014 through 2016. Last year, the advanced metrics at Pro Football Focus placed Zuttah as the 13th best center in the league. His 82.7 score was his best showing since his rookie campaign.

Jaguars Sign 16 UDFAs, Cut 11 Players

The Jaguars announced that they have signed 16 undrafted free agents. In order to make room, they have released eleven players from the roster. Here’s the full rundown:

Dimick led the Pac-12 in sacks last season with 13.5 and earned a first-team All-Conference selection. Prior to the draft, one NFC West Coast scout told Lance Zierlein of NFL.com that Dimick’s work ethic is admirable, but his lack of natural talent may inhibit him at the next level.

He’s more try-hard than talented. His effort is great. I love how hard he plays, but when you are as sawed-off as he is on the edge and you can’t unlock your hips, I don’t know how he is going to see the field,” the scout said.

Horton got $25K guaranteed from the Jaguars between his $5K bonus and $20K guaranteed base, Tom Pelissero of USA Today tweets.

The Jags’ roster is now at the 90-man max.

Jaguars Waive LB Arthur Brown

The Jaguars announced today that they’ve waived linebacker Arthur Brown, while they’ve filled the open roster spot by promoting fellow linebacker Sean Porter from their practice squad.Arthur Brown (Vertical)

[RELATED: Jacksonville Jaguars Depth Chart]

Brown, a former second-round pick of the Ravens, has essentially been recast as a special teams player at this point in his career, as he’d fallen out of favor in Baltimore before being waived this summer, and hadn’t contributed on the defensive side of the ball for Jacksonville this season. The 26-year-old had only played on six defensive snaps for the Jags in 2016 (while seeing time on nearly 85% of the club’s ST plays), and had only been on the field for 10 total defensive snaps during his final two seasons with the Ravens.

Porter, 25, was also a relatively high draft choice (fourth round, Bengals, 2013), but has only played in one game thus far in his career. Waived by Cincinnati in November 2015, Porter has spent much of the time since on the Jaguars’ practice squad. He’ll likely fill a role similar to that of Brown, playing on special teams while serving as depth behind Telvin Smith, Paul Posluszny, Myles Jack, and Dan Skuta.
