The Panthers have decided to keep undrafted running back Brandon Wegher, who had three preseason touchdowns. Keeping the former Morningside (Sioux City) College star doesn't bode well for backfield mate Jordan Todman, who initially was signed to return kickoff.

As they often are on cut-down weekend, the Bengals were silent Friday. It means their Saturday will be busy. With a roster still at 75, they have 22 moves to make by 4 p.m. ET. One pressing question: what impact will injured LB Vontaze Burfict have on the makeup of the 53-man roster?

The Panthers began cuts by releasing wide receiver Brenton Bersin, the first Wofford player to make an NFL roster since team owner Jerry Richardson in 1959 for the world champion Baltimore Colts. Bersin became expendable because the Panthers can use third string quarterback Joe Webb as a receiver and because they have needs at other positions that are more critical.

Tom Brady releases statement on Facebook

It says in part, "I want to thank my family, my friends, all of the fans, past and current players and my teammates for the support they have given me throughout this challenging experience. I also want to thank Judge Berman and his staff. ... While I am pleased to be eligible to play, I am sorry our league had to endure this. I don’t think it has been good for our sport - to a large degree, we have all lost. I am also sorry to anyone whose feelings I may have hurt as I have tried to work to resolve this situation."
