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.

A quiet Friday for the Jets, but they worked out a handful of players, including QB Matt Blanchard (Packers) and TE Brandon Bostick. You may remember Bostick from the NFC Championship Game; he's the Packer who botched the onside kick. Tight end is a big need for the Jets. Look for a move over the next 48 hours.
