The NFL roster cut deadline passed Saturday night, but on Sunday, Tyler Wilson joined a number of other former Razorbacks to be cut.
The Oakland Raiders waived their fourth-round draft pick on Sunday after announcing him as a member of the 53-man roster on Saturday. Wilson was the fourth-string quarterback behind Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin.
Wilson passed through waivers and is now on the Raiders' practice squad.
The receiver who caught a school-record 90 passes from Wilson in 2012, Cobi Hamilton, was also waived. Hamilton was the Cincinnati Bengals' sixth-round draft pick. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, Hamilton was kept on the Bengals' practice squad.
The Green Bay Packers announced they waived tight end D.J. Williams. The Packers selected Williams in the fifth round of the 2011 draft.
Williams was claimed on waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSsports.com.
Former Arkansas running back Dennis Johnson was cut by the Houston Texans, but was also claimed on Sunday. Johnson joined the Cleveland Browns, according to La Canfora.
One of Johnson's teammates at Arkansas, Ronnie Wingo, had been cut by the Atlanta Falcons, but joined the Buffalo Bills' eight-man practice squad on Sunday. Tight end Chris Gragg made the Bills' 53-man roster.
Offensive guard Alvin Bailey, who was undrafted, made the Seattle Seahawks roster, the Seattle Times said Saturday evening.
Another former Arkansas offensive lineman, Ray Dominguez, was cut by the Dallas Cowboys.
Offensive tackle Demarcus Love and wide receiver Greg Childs are exempt from the Minnesota Vikings roster while Love serves a four-game suspension and Childs begins the season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
Former Arkansas wide receiver, Joe Adams, was cut by the Carolina Panthers last week.
Former Arkansas defensive players that were cut include Ross Rasner (Denver Broncos), Jerico Nelson (New Orleans Saints), Greg Gatson (San Diego Chargers), Alonzo Highsmith (Miami Dolphins), Jerry Franklin, who was later signed to the Chicago Bears' practice squad, and 2007 first-round pick Jamaal Anderson (Chicago Bears).
Nelson, who spent the 2012 season on the Saints' practice squad, and Rasner are a couple of candidates to end up on practice squads, as Franklin, Hamilton and Wingo did.
