Waiver Wire Process and Priority

Players cut with a "waived" designation (fewer than four seasons of NFL experience) need to clear waivers and can be claimed off them by any other NFL franchise.

All players belonging to this group that were cut ahead of Wednesday, Aug. 30, would remain there until Wed., Aug. 30 at 12 p.m. ET. All teams are allowed to submit their claims for such players until the deadline, and those claims are later run following a predetermined order to come up with a winner for the claimed player.

The team with the highest is awarded the player under his current (the one he had with the franchise that cut him) contract, and the player is automatically added to the 53-man roster of his new franchise.

Waiver claims cannot be added to the practice squad, contrary to veterans/released players.

In terms of waiver priority, the Baltimore Ravens are ranked 23rd behind the Los Angeles Chargers and ahead of the Minnesota Vikings. The full list, led by the Chicago Bears, can be found here.
