NFL teams continue working throughout Labor Day

Posted by Will Brinson

NFL teams worked their way down to 53-man rosters on Saturday. But even as of Sunday, there were a pile of surprise cuts and signings that we were still processing.

So too goes the news cycle on Labor Day, when NFL teams are not taking the day off, but rather beefing up their roster in preparation for the opening weekend of football that's coming in less than seven days (!!!).
