Veterans such as Anthony Johnson, Billy Joe Tolliver and Orlando Brown didn't make their team's roster Sunday on the final NFL cutdown day.
Johnson, the only back to rush for 1,000 yards in Panthers history, was released. New Orleans did the same to Tolliver, who started seven games last year. The unfortunate Brown, still suffering sight problems after being hit in the eye by an official's penalty flag last December, was placed on the physically unable to perform list by Cleveland.
Other veterans finding themselves unemployed: quarterback Doug Pederson (Eagles), placekicker Todd Peterson (Seahawks), safety Omar Stoutmire (Jets), center Mike Devlin (Cardinals), tight end Ryan Wetnight (Bears), cornerback Michael Booker (Falcons), guard Brian DeMarco (Bengals), safety Leomond Evans (Lions), running back Raymont Harris (Patriots), placekicker Joe Nedney (Raiders), linebacker Gabe Northern (Steelers), and receiver Charlie Jones (Chargers).
