NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -
The Tennessee Titans have waived 13 players trimming their roster to 77 and still need to make two more moves before the NFL's first cut deadline.

The Titans must be at 75 players by Tuesday afternoon.

They waived kicker Maikon Bonani; receivers Justin Hilton, Roberto Wallace and Diondre Borel; safety Tracy Wilson; linebacker Kadarron Anderson; tight end Martell Webb; and offensive linemen Barry Richardson, Oscar Johnson and Eloy Atkinson.

The Titans also reached an injury settlement with tight end DeMarco Cosby and waived-injured linebacker Greg Jones.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -
The Atlanta Falcons have completed their latest round of cuts by waiving receivers Rashad Evans, Marcus Jackson and Marcus Sales.

The cuts announced Monday came after the team waived 11 players the previous day.

The roster now stands at 75 heading into Thursday's final preseason game against Jacksonville.

Evans and Sales were signed by the Falcons this year as college free agents. Jackson was an undrafted player who spent the 2012 season on Atlanta's practice squad.

The Falcons must reduce their roster to the regular-season limit of 53 by Saturday.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -
The Atlanta Falcons have waived 11 players after losing their third straight preseason game.

The Falcons announced Sunday they have cut tight end Tim Biere, fullback Devonte Campbell, linebacker Nick Clancy, tight end Colin Cloherty, quarterback Seth Doege, defensive end Cam Henderson, offensive tackle Jeff Nady, running back Donald Russell, safety Troy Sanders, center Matt Smith and defensive end Brandon Thurmond.

All were undrafted players, and Cloherty was the only one with NFL experience.

The tougher cuts are still to come. The Falcons must get to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon, then trim their roster for 53 players by Saturday for the start of the regular season.
