Of the six players, only TE Nate Jackson came from the offensive side of the ball.
The biggest name that was let go was starting DT Dewayne Robertson. A league source told Scout.com that the interior defensive lineman was due a whopping $17 million roster bonus.
Another former free agent signee who was let go, MLB Niko Koutouvides, was due a roster bonus close to $1.8 million. The former fourth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks out of the 2004 draft was beaten out for a starting job by veteran LB Nate Webster coming out of training camp.
Also jettisoned Monday were DE John Engleberger, LB Jamie Winborn, and SS Marquand Manuel.
