Who already has been released? Notable cuts tracker

 The first few weeks following Super Bowl LI have seen a handful of notable players cut by their respective teams as some organizations aim to clear cap space in anticipation of the start of the new league year. Veterans who are suddenly deemed expendable have been released as have underachieving players who entered the league as high draft selections. We've assembled a round-up of the most notable moves so far.

Free agency has yet to arrive but that hasn't stopped NFL teams from trimming the fat.

» Ryan Clady offensive tackle New York Jets

The Jets declined Clady's $10 million option for 2017 as New York suddenly eyes a potential mass shedding of veterans in order to jumpstart a roster turnaround.

» Kelvin Beachum offensive tackle Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are not picking up Beachum's four-year $35 million option sending the 27-year-old tackle to free agency after just one season in Jacksonville.

» Victor Cruz wide receiver New York Giants

Cruz was considered a bubble guy as training camp came to a close for the Giants and though he contributed in spurts during the season it's clear he and his $7.4 million 2017 salary were more than expendable. It brought an end to the New York chapter of one of football's great stories of the last decade with Cruz earning his place in the league as an undrafted free agent who became a star receiver for Big Blue.

» Nick Folk kicker New York Jets

New York continues to grasp for breathing room beneath the salary cap trimming their 2017 team figure by releasing Folk after seven seasons with the Jets. Folk's release saves the Jets more than $3.5 million against the cap which explains why New York would release a kicker who's been more than serviceable throughout his career and made 87.1 percent of his field goal attempts in 2016.

» Alterraun Verner cornerback Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Verner was one of the hottest defensive backs available on the market two offseasons ago scooped up by the Buccaneers during a free agency period that saw Tampa Bay spend a h

» Rashad Jennings running back New York Giants

Jennings was splitting carries with the younger Paul Perkins midway through the season (injuries didn't help Jennings' cause) and at 31 years old it wasn't at all surprising to see the Giants cut Jennings loose.

» Justin Gilbert cornerback Pittsburgh Steelers

Selected eighth overall in the 2014 NFL Draft Gilbert was dealt to Pittsburgh after two very underwhelming seasons in Cleveland that included multiple healthy scratches and reports of maturity issues. Gilbert was relegated to return man in Pittsburgh where he was cut soon after the Steelers' postseason run fell short in the AFC title game drawing a tweet from Browns tackle Joe Thomas that referenced Gilbert's purported lack of passion for the game.

» Josh McCown quarterback Cleveland Browns

McCown performed valiantly for the Browns but Cleveland is no place for a 37-year-old quarterback. The Browns cut the veteran before he entered his third and final year of his contract. McCown intends to play elsewhere in 2017.

» Leodis McKelvin cornerback Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are in dire need of salary cap space and while McKelvin was a carryover from Buffalo and familiar with Jim Schwartz's defense injury issues (concussion hamstring) limited him to 12 games. At 31 years old Philadelphia is going younger as it searches for needed improvements.

» Jared Odrick defensive end Jacksonville Jaguars

Odrick's cap number was the second-highest on Jacksonville's roster and as Gregg Rosenthal wrote he would probably be best used as a rotational defensive end. For a Jaguars team that spent plenty in recent years Odrick was a prime candidate to get cut as Jacksonville trims the unnecessarily expensive contracts from its roster moving forward.

» Sam Shields cornerback Green Bay Packers

Shields was one of Green Bay's most reliable and effective defensive backs in recent years but concussion-related issues in 2016 -- Shields played in just one game all season -- leave him with an uncertain future though the corner said he hopes to play in 2017.

» James Starks running back Green Bay Packers

Green Bay released Starks with a non-injury designation on Feb. 7 but his time as a Packer quickly headed toward the end once Mike McCarthy implemented wide receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery into the team's gameplan.

» Mike Tolbert fullback Carolina Panthers

Carolina released Tolbert on Feb. 21 after five seasons with the Panthers in which he served as a forceful bowling-ball type of power back who was an effective blocker and short-yardage back and also excelled as just about the largest person anyone would see catching a pass out of the backfield. Tolbert had one year remaining on his deal but as Carolina needs to get younger in the backfield the Panthers decided to release the veteran in favor of Darrel Young who was signed shortly after the 2016 concluded
