Pilares among Hawaii players cut from NFL teams

Pilares among Hawaii players cut from NFL teams

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Three former University of Hawaii football players learned a harsh lesson on life in the National Football League on Sunday as all were cut from their respective teams.

The most high-profile release is Carolina saying goodbye to Kealoha Pilares.

The wide receiver was a fifth-round pick in 2011 and missed all of the 2013 regular season with a knee injury.

The Atlanta Falcons waived free-agent linebacker Brenden Daley and the Green Bay Packers parted ways with safety Charles Clay.

The cuts are a product of teams trimming rosters down to 75 players before this Tuesday.
