by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Quarterback, punter headline Friday cuts by Bills
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:30 pm ET) Quarterback Jordan Palmer and veteran punter Brian Moorman are the two most significant cuts announced by the Bills on Friday.

Palmer was let go three days after his signing. He had been cut by Chicago on Tuesday. He has only played in five regular season games in five years. Moorman has been booting for the Bills as the No. 1 punter 2001, aside from one season with Dallas.

The other cuts are linebacker Xavius Boyd, defensive tackle Landon Cohen, tight end Dominique Jones, cornerbacks Kamaal McIlwain and Sam Miller, fullback Evan Rodriguez, wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt and center Jared Wheeler.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tight end Tony Moeaki, cornerback Mario Butler and cornerback Bobby Felder were all put on IR. Moeaki started 29 games for the Chiefs from 2010 to 2012. He was active for two games last season with the Bills, but failed to record any offensive stats.

Angerer is probably the most recognizable name in the bunch. He started 16 games for the Colts back in 2011. Rumph was featured on an early episode of Hard Knocks this season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

NFL slaps Aldon Smith with nine-game suspension
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:11 pm ET) The NFL has announced that 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith has been suspended for nine games for multiple charges.

Smith has been charged with a DUI and also made a bomb threat at an airport. He has also dealt with a felony firearms issue.

The suspension is a bit longer than what had been anticipated for Smith, who racked up 8 1/2 sacks in just 11 games a year ago after recording 19 1/2 in a full season in 2012.


Coach: Johnny Manziel needs to make better decisions
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:02 pm ET) Mike Pettine has criticized the decision-making of Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel on Friday, per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Pettine told the media that Manziel needs to pick and choose more prudently when to bolt from the pocket. The coach also indicated that Manziel must opt to throw to open receivers rather than to run.


Veterans among Friday cuts by Bears
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:57 pm ET) The Bears have released several players, including veteran blocking tight end Jeron Mastrud. Mastrud caught six passes last season for Oakland.

Also let go by Chicago are running back Jordan Lynch, wideout Armanti Edwards, tackle Dennis Roland and offensive lineman Robert Turner .
