Mike Fisher adds a 4th name to the list, TE Colin Cochart

Stephens' release means that everyone's favorite UDFA QB, Alex Tanney, will probably play every snap in the final pre-season game against the Houston Texans, meaning they aren't trying to hide Tanney's talents from the rest of the league.
That's 4 down and 7 more to go to meet the 3 PM Central time Dead line to trim the roster to 75 players.
Who will be next?
[UPDATE] Next is WR Eric Rogers, via Tom Orsborn:
