090516-afc-west-update-cp.jpg

With the first week of regular season football less than a week away, NFL teams have officially trimmed their rosters from 75 players down to 53.

This past Saturday, the league required teams to make their final roster cuts by 1:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. The Oakland Raiders submitted their cuts on Saturday, and placed Fullback Marcel Reece on the Reserve/Suspended list.

The other teams in the AFC West also completed their roster cuts by the NFL deadline, so let's take a look at the final roster cuts from the division.
