With the other day 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 NFC North saw the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears release notable names [VIDEO] as part of their roster cuts.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers cut second-year wide receiver Max McCaffrey, who was trying to earn a roster spot on a deep and crowded receiving corps. McCaffrey is the son of former Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey and current Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey. They also cut backup quarterbacks Taysom Hill and Joe Callahan, making Brett Hundley the only quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings cut veteran guard Alex Boone and offensive tackle TJ Clemmings. Boone was signed to a four-year, $26.8 million contract last offseason and started 14 games. He was cut after refusing to take a pay cut. Clemmings was drafted in the fourth-round in 2015 and has started 30 games the last two seasons. He too was cut, as the Vikings offensive line was one of the worst in the league last season.

They also cut receiver Moritz Bohringer, who became the first player ever drafted directly out of Europe when the Vikings took him in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. He will not be resigned to the team's practice squad as the team did not feel he had made enough progress to justify keeping him around.

Detroit Lions

The Detriot Lions parted ways with backup tackle Cornelius Lucas, who played in 35 games and started six of them in his three years with the team.

Lucas originally made the team as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State but was expendable after the team added two new offensive linemen off of waivers. They also waived quarterback Brad Kayya, who was drafted in the sixth round of this year's draft out of Miami. Jake Rudock beat him out for the backup job and the team elected to only keep two quarterbacks.

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears released veteran wide receiver Victor Cruz, who was trying to stick with the team after being released by the Giants in February. However, the Giants let Cruz go as he is clearly not the same speedy player he used to be after he suffered a torn patellar tendon back in 2014. They also waived 2015 fourth-round pick, running back Jeremy Langford. He was the starter going into last season but quickly lost his job to rookie Jordan Howard.
