Anyone want to take a guess on the first wave of cuts? I read a report at PR that quoted Simms as saying he's prepared to sit out the whole year if he does get cut at some point.

I am pretty sure it is too late to put a player on the PUP list anyway.

Sorry, your missing my point.

How can he be "physically unable to perform" if he's throwing passes everyday, if he didn't have a clean bill of health, he wouldn't be out their?

Here's one for'yer.

Mike Alstott was placed on IR because of a neck injury, so we can't cut him, (don't get side tracked on this, I am not suggesting that we do), Simeon Rice was cut because he didn't pass a physical?

Rice's injury was sustained while playing for us? How/why, were we able to cut him?

Chris Simms sustained a major injury while playing for us, but passed his physical, should things not work out for him, we'll be able to cut him, how does this work?

No I understood your point. I was purely mentioning how even if we wanted to put a player on the PUP list, it isn't possible. I too agree that the notion of putting a healthy player on the PUP list is stupid. Simms is healthy, he is just not physically conditioned to play.

We could cut Alstott, but that would require an injury settlement.

Furthermore, I suspect the failed physical was purely a way to get rid of Simeon's large contract.
