It’s that time of the year when NFL teams are forced to shave their rosters down to a maximum of 53 players. Saturday at 4 p.m. ET was the deadline to do so.

Around the league, teams are forced to trim the fat — lose the fourth or fifth running backs, the undrafted wide receivers, and in some cases, the high-profile veterans.

Here were the six most surprising cuts made by NFL teams over the weekend:

  • Dbone

    Dallas will pick this human and he will be brilliant

  • DelawareJack
