Also falling was the number of players. Twelve more were placed on waivers Friday, three of them college draft picks, as Patera trimmed his National Football League squad to 78 players — 31 less than when the training camp began last week at Eastern Washington State College. Patera handed walking papers to Ron Barnett, a wide receiver chosen in the 12th round; Jeff Urczyk, a guard picked in the 16th round, and 17th round choice Chris Rowland, a quarterback from Washington.

The cut list included free agents Sears Woods, running back; Phil Clabo. offensive tackle; Greg Den Boer, tight end; Ernie Richardson, linebacker, and Preston Roberts, wide receiver.
