With this past Saturday being the big day where NFL teams had to cut down their roster to 53 players, a ton of moves took place across the league. The AFC North saw the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns release notable names as part of roster cutdowns.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released veteran running back Knile Davis, who was trying to make the team following two disappointing seasons in the NFL. With Davis gone and Fitzgerald Toussaint on the practice squad, rookie James Conner will back up Le'Von Bell. They also cut veteran tight end/fullback David Johnson, who was in his second stint with the team.

With the team trading for Vance McDonald, Johnson's fate on the roster was sealed since he was already third on the depth chart.

Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens cut veteran center Jeremy Zuttah, as he failed to impress the team after they resigned him about two weeks ago. Zuttah made the Pro Bowl last year with the team, but the 31-year-old's performance clearly dropped off a cliff in the offseason.

The team also cut ties with tight end Larry Donnell, whose career has gone downhill since a breakout 2014 campaign with the New York Giants. Donnell was released despite the team losing Dennis Pitta and Crockett Gilmore for the season and having Darren Waller suspended. Baltimore also released second-year player Keenan Reynolds, who set the FBS career record for rushing touchdowns during his time at Navy.

He was trying to make the team as a receiver and return specialist.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals released veteran tackle and current NFL Player Association President Eric Winston. He has spent the last three seasons with the team as a veteran backup who has started in a handful of games.

They also released defensive lineman Will Clarke, who was their third-round pick in the 2014 draft. In his three seasons with the team, he never started a game and only recorded 4.5 sacks.

Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns cut quarterback Brock Osweiler after trading for him in May. Osweiler had a chance to win the starting job but was unimpressive as he gave way to second-round pick out of Notre Dame DeShone Kizer.

They also cut 2016 fifth-round pick Rashard Higgins, who did little to stand out in a crowded receiving core. Cleveland let go of kicker Cody Parkey as well, as seventh-round pick Zane Gonzalez won the starting job.
