Anyone else excited for them? I believe the teams need to trim their rosters to 53 by 6:00pm eastern tonight. This is probably the only possible way that people losing their job becomes entertainment....kind of sad really.....

but i figure we can use this thread to post some up too if there are any significant ones or any surprises.

looks like the Eagles are getting a head start already:

Might actually see a Rudi Johnson Cut from the Bengals if they dont trade him off. Ahmad Brooks looks to get the shaft as well...will be interesting to see what the Bengals do.

They're just going to cut Brooks? He's still got a lot to give IMO, especially next to Rivers.

Chargers face some interesting cuts; we might keep 5 RB/FBs between LT, Sproles, Hester, Tolbert and Pinnock.

Disregard this if something happened, but what about Marcus Thomas, the UTEP Running Back? Have they already cut him, or could he stay on the roster?

Brooks has under performed greatly. He cant keep up on the 3rd strong defense. They moved him back to MLB so maybe that will help him...who knows though. It looks like he is going to get snubbed for Maxwell...a special teams LB. Wish we could just clone Rivers 2 times and use him to play LB in all positions.

The Bengals are in the same boat on RB/FB

Perry,Watson,Rudi,Dorsey,J.Johnson, Coats, and the other Johnson.

Perry, Watson, and Coats are the only sure keeps in my mind...mainly because Coats is also the backup TE. J. Johnson is out of shape, Rudi is expensive for a backup...and Dorsey is Just unproven. The other Johnson just isnt good enough...he is likely going to Practice Squad.

I know for the Bears, Dan Bazuin faces the chance of being cut. 2nd round pick last year, hurt all season, could be cut this year.....waste of a pick....

Bears could also be taking just 4 running backs into the season too. Forte, Jones, AP, and Wolfe. Tack on a FB and they could have 5 backs....

I wonder if Steve Johnson, rookie out of Kentucky makes it. I hope he does. He has had a great preseason. I would be very dissapointed if Justin Jenkins makes the team but Johnson doesnt. Also, Demetrius Bell, LT(Worst player in madden by 6 points). He has also had a good preseason. I would also be disapointed if he doesnt make the team too.

I had been hearing good things about Johnson all off season. I have a friend in North Dakota that is a huge Bills fan and said he liked Johnson as well. I hope he makes the cuts...because if he doesnt I think another team will snag him and he will be good.

hmm. If true chalk it up to PFT, lol. I think it even says 6:00 eastern int hat link i posted...

But they're still coming up and teams who are done with the preseason will probably get a head start on the cuts so they can get under in case another team cuts a player they're interested in.

Saints and Pats each cut a couple:

Arrington going on IR for the Saints is the only name I really recognize though....

and heres some of the Bears:

"Players on the way out in Chicago include fullback Lousaka Polite, receiver Mike Hass, defensive end Nick Osborn, running back P.J. Pope and offensive linemen Cody Balogh, Tyler Reed and Ryan Poles."

Only thing is there is no reason to cut Jenkins. Both could very well make it. None of our WR but Evans have been consistently healthy, anyway. Our biggest cut will probably be at corner if Stevie Johnson makes it.

Rams chop 10:

"Gone are receiver Matt Caddell, safety Jerome Carter, tight end Nick Cleaver, cornerback Tanard Davis, cornerback Cortney Grixby, receiver Marques Hagans, center Donovan Raiola, linebacker Marcus Riley, nose tackle Henry Smith, and nose tackle Willie Williams."

Jerome Carter is the only name I really recognize there.

What a ridiculous argument. How we spent those picks has nothing to do with what was given up. The two aren't connected at all.

AJ gave up a lot to move up to the 37th pick, more than is generally considered fair, that's not a debateable point.

I'll take your word for it, can't say I saw him play too much, just surprising because it's a relatively big name.

BeerBaron
08-29-2008, 04:14 PM
if a "big name" gets cut this early on, its probably safe to assume they were doing pretty miserable....

Gotta feel bad for him though. He went from a starter (or at least major contributor) on an undefeated team to not even being able to make a final roster.....

08-29-2008, 08:05 PM
I started a thread for this... But it hadn't been used so I guess I can see why another was started. (Only for you BeerBaron:D) Not many surprises for the Eagles, though, I think guys like Graham and Paschal, if they are still eligble, may be put on our Practice Squad. The texans had a lot of names that I knew there, but I can't say I was surprised with too many of them.

Yeah, because other than a freak injury, he's missed all of 1 game in his career. He's such an injury risk. :rolleyes:

Anyway, I can not wait to see Kenton Keith's stone hands no longer associated with the Colts as of tomorrow.

Anthony Wright and Andre Woodson both didn't make the Giants. We're going with Manning and Carr.

Brandon London was waived while Moss did make the team.

Both McQ and Madison made the team

5. TE Michael Allan
6. TE Michael Merritt (PUP)
7. WR Kevin McMahan

Woodson getting cut is big news IMO. GMs need to watch the game film on this kid, in a QB starved league there's gotta be a roster space somewhere for him.

I'm pretty sure they did watch game film of him, which is why he fell to the 6th round in the first place.

PalmerToCJ
08-30-2008, 01:00 PM
Damn I knew I should have drafted Kenny Watson.

Chris Perry is the guy you want, well, until he gets hurt anyway.

Perry is the feature back until he gets injured with Watson giving him breaks. Then in the even Perry does finally get hurt it'd be Watson as the primary guy and DeDe Dorsey as the change of pace/3rd down back.

I have to hope this is more over health than injury. DeDe is a good back, if Rudi wasn't looking like he would come around then I'm all for cutting him but this surely is more over money than health.

he fumbled 2 snaps in the pats game and that pissed off Coughlin.

That said, I bet he's back on our practice squad...

But come on, the kid fell to the 6th round and couldn't beat out David Carr. I think that says something. These GM's have watched plenty of film, as have their scouts. Obviously they see something you don't. I'll take Jerry Reese's idea of players over yours...

Rudi Johnson has been released, per roto:

Bengals released RB Rudi Johnson.
The writing was on the wall for Rudi when he hurt the same hamstring in camp that washed out his '07 season and took way too long to recover. As a vested vet, Johnson may have to wait until after Week 1 to catch on elsewhere so his next team doesn't have to guarantee his salary. The Saints could give him a look.

Patriots cut a few guys:

"The New England Patriots announced the released of four players today:second-year nose tackle Steve Fifita, first-year offensive lineman Jimmy Martin, fourth-year cornerback Jeff Shoate and rookie tight end Jonathan Stupar."

None of these guys had any impact on the season.

This is my prediction for New England's 53-man roster:

QB - Tom Brady, Kevin O'Connell, Matt Gutierrez (3)
RB - Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris, LaMont Jordan (6)
FB - Heath Evans (7)
WR - Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Jabar Gaffney, Chad Jackson, Kelley Washington, Sam Aiken, Matthew Slater (14)
TE - Benjamin Watson, David Thomas, Stephen Spach (17)
OT - Matt Light, Nick Kaczur, Wesley Britt (20)
OG - Logan Mankins, Billy Yates, Russ Hochstein, John Welbourn (24)
OC - Daniel Koppen, Lonie Paxton (26)

DE - Ty Warren, Rihhard Seymour, Jarvis Green (29)
DT - Vince Wilfork, Mike Wright, Le Kevin Smith (32)
LB - Mike Vrabel, Adalius Thomas, Shawn Crable, Pierre Woods, Gary Guyton (37)
LB - Tedy Bruschi, Jerod Mayo, Victor Hobson, Eric Alexander, Larry Izzo (42)
CB - Ellis Hobbs III, Fernando Bryant, Terrence Wheatley, Lewis Sanders, Jonathan Wilhite (47)
FS - James Sanders, John Lynch (49)
SS - Rodney Harrison, Brandon Meriweather (51)

PK - Stephen Gostkowski (52)
PN - Chris Hanson (53)

Injured:

OT Ryan O'Callaghan
OG Stephen Neal
CB Mike Richardson
SS Tank Williams

Suspended:

RB Kevin Faulk

Practice Squad:

RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis
LB Vince Redd
FS Raymond Ventrone

I was for the move earlier in the offseason, but no thanks to Colvin now imo. The Colts have more explosive pass rushers on the roster, so much so that they'll have to cut a few.

And Freeney's impact and effect on a game extends a world beyond that particular statline.

Given this is a draft site this one may be of interest...

Ahmad Brooks is on the border of being cut. Not sure if he isn't over that groin injury or what but the guy did nothing in preseason against 3rd team players. He played some MLB against the Colts and didn't do so bad, I'd think if they keep him he has to go back to MLB. He couldn't do squat at SLB.

Willie Anderson was just released by the Bengals after he refused to take a pay cut. Does he have anything left in the tank?

That is from Rotoworld.


Also, on the Steelers message board, a poster said there was a rumor that Winston Justice was going to get cut. Any truth to that rumor?

Bengals are making a lot of cap room with the release of Willie Anderson and Rudi Johnson.

Doesn't make sense that Willie wouldn't take pay cut. He had lost his starting job, he's hasn't been healthy in years, and he was getting beat by teams 2nd and 3rd stringers in the preseason. You can't pay a guy 6 million when he's playing like that.

PalmerToCJ
08-30-2008, 02:53 PM
I understand releasing Willie from a business standpoint but it still sucks.

The guy was with us through thick and thin, he was a team player.

Wish him nothing but the best.

Willie Anderson would be a dream signing for me. Chargers depth at OT is bad, behind LJ Shelton. Like, practice squad guys, and not the good ones. Bring him in AJ!

He was getting paid 5 mill a year right? Yeah, too much for a bench player. He's really had a great career, I always zeroed in on him with Cincy.

08-30-2008, 04:26 PM
I wouldn't be so against Rosevelt Colvin as a backup DE if I were you. He's still a decent player and Dwight Freeney hasn't been very productive over the last two years, with only 9 sacks in 25 games.

Really? Wow. Okay, let's just ignore the fact that in 2006, teams ran at the Colts more than any other team in the NFL by far and Freeney still was top 5 in pressures. That's another thing about his "reduced production"...not getting a sack is not necessarily a failed play for Freeney. He draws a double, he's done his job, he gets a pressure, he's done his job, he makes the QB make a decision a split second before he wants to because of his presence, he's done his job. As for Colvin, why bother with him when the Colts have two far cheaper, far younger options to work with for a situational pass rusher in Marcus Howard and Curtis Johnson? I'd rather see both of them get some valuable experience and develop than see a 1 year patch go out there and probably fail like Simeon Rice.

He was getting paid 5 mill a year right? Yeah, too much for a bench player. He's really had a great career, I always zeroed in on him with Cincy.

I guess the rumor I heard of Justice getting cut was untrue. Oh well. I wonder what McDougle can do in a 34 and could be a good suite there. I am suprised that Moats got cut as I thought the Eagles were high on him, but with Booker there, he became expendable.

The Bengals are bold releasing Brooks, Anderson, Johnson, and O'Neal.

They're bold in that they are big names that have had playing time.

Brooks: As I said, I was hoping he made the squad - although I admit he didn't earn it. He's a physical freak, but the guy has nothing upstairs and gets hurt a lot. I was hoping the light would come on, but when he couldn't outrun Drew Stanton a few weeks ago, the writing was on the wall.

O'Neal: The guy just plays lazy. He was a Pro-Bowler a few years ago, and now he just mopes around. He was beaten out for the nickel role.

Anderson: Has been said. He's still not healthy enough to do the weekly grind, but he could no doubt help a team. He may retire, but if he does sign with someone else, it'll probably only be for a team with a chance to win a Super Bowl.

Johnson: Last offseason, Rudi lost almost 20 lbs because he wanted to be faster. It was a terrible decision. He was tapdancing in the backfield and his YPC dropped. On top of that his hamstring made him a non-factor. Kenny Watson came in and did well. He's gained his weight back but hasn't practiced since the first week of camp. He can help a team like Houston, Detroit, Denver, and any team with questions about the RB position should check him out. He would be a beast in Denver.

Matthew Jones
08-30-2008, 05:33 PM
I'd love for New England to add Willie Anderson to play RT. He'd really give us a boost on the offensive line. In addition, I only expect three tackles have a pretty solid spot on roster and Goodell could always suspended Kaczur out of nowhere.

For the Redskins, Marcus Mason getting cut is disappointing. He was a good player in the preseason, it would be sad if he wasn't able to find a new roster spot. I thought he was one of the team's bright spots over the past month or so.

LB Bo Ruud (I.R.) - Expected, although I doubt he makes the team next year.

C Mike Flynn - Somewhat surprising, did well last week and gives some depth, could return.

LB Victor Hobson - Didn't do well in preseason, was outplayed by Mayo, and didn't make the team. Potential for Seau to return?

CB Fernando Bryant - Looked terrible by most reports in practice, camp, and games, and I guess the #2 is up for grabs.

DB Antwan Spann - Looked okay last week in the game, I thought he had a shot, but apparently not.

You should have kept Vince Redd. From looking at his measureables and numbers(noting that he did play for a small college), I think he will find somewhere and stick. I would hope the Steelers at least look at him, but I doubt it. He is a good talent to where I dont think he will go on your PS.

I didn't really think he had a great shot of making the team, but I am a huge Redd fan, and hope he gets to make the practice squad. I think he'd be signed away from it, but at least to sign him would show that we're not just kicking him to the curb.

This is from Patsfans.com:

Here's the announcement, just issued by the Patriots:

The New England Patriots placed two players on the reserve/injured list, placed one player on the reserve/non-football injury list and released 14 players today. Tackle Oliver Ross (shoulder) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list, while linebacker Bo Ruud (ankle) and defensive lineman Kenny Smith (arm) were placed on the reserve/injured list. Additionally, New England released 14 players, listed below.

The Patriots are in compliance with the NFL’s regular-season roster limit, which took effect at 4:00 p.m. EDT today.

__________________

Okay, so aside from the people I mentioned earlier (Thomas, Hobson, Redd, etc.), only a few cuts surprise me. One is the highly speculated upon backup QB battle, which apparently Matt Cassel won over Matt Gutierrez. I fully expected Cassel to be cut, and thought Gutierrez was a likely cut as well, although not so much as Cassel. I was hoping the team would add a veteran backup (Harrington, Culpepper) instead.

Anyways, there are only two players who I was hoping would make the team, but were cut: Green-Ellis, who looked good in the preseason, and Mike Richardson, who sounds like an excellent Patriots corner. John Welbourn looked like someone who might make the roster as well, since Neal went on the PUP list.

Additionally, C.J. Jones made the team. I think New England has nine receivers on roster now. Those would be Moss, Welker, Gaffney, Jackson, Washington, Aiken, Jones, Slater, and Ventrone. Of course, Slater and Ventrone could play safety instead (they play both), and Washington, Aiken, and Slater are special teamers.

Players who I'd want New England to sign:

QB Daunte Culpepper
QB Joey Harrington
WR Danny Amendola (practice squad)
OT Willie Anderson
LB Ahmad Brooks (practice squad)
LB Rosevelt Colvin
LB Vince Redd (practice squad)
LB Junior Seau
CB Deltha O'Neal (sort of, not really)

I still feel that Quinn Gray can be a good starting quarterback in the league. Don't hold his experience with the Colts too much against him, he only joined the team on July 24th and it's not an offense to just walk into. Especially when playing with inexperienced back-ups because of team youth.

He has size, he has the arm, the accuracy for the most part, can move around the field very well, and can read defenses okay. If I was in charge of the Chicago Bears, I'd immediately sign him and build my offense around him. But that's me personally, I see a great deal of potential in him. I think he can be the next David Garrard.

Neither had much of a shot to begin with, Lattimore is actually pretty good but he's not going to make it over the 4th rd draft pick, Amendola has very little to no upside, and Lowber is a PS guy at this point, too raw to make anyone's 53 man roster, but I certainly want to keep him around.

I still feel that Quinn Gray can be a good starting quarterback in the league. Don't hold his experience with the Colts too much against him, he only joined the team on July 24th and it's not an offense to just walk into. Especially when playing with inexperienced back-ups because of team youth.

He has size, he has the arm, the accuracy for the most part, can move around the field very well, and can read defenses okay. If I was in charge of the Chicago Bears, I'd immediately sign him and build my offense around him. But that's me personally, I see a great deal of potential in him. I think he can be the next David Garrard.
Hasn't Quinn Gray already been on three teams now? No offense Geo, but this would be a time I'm glad you aren't in charge of the Bears.

I wouldnt want him starting for my team but, Gray can be a pretty solid back up for a lot of teams out there. He's a good player.

The Jaguars signed Cleo Lemon after last season. Unknown how much of an effort they made to re-sign Gray, who signed with the Texans.

Except the Texans didn't trade back-up Sage Rosenfels during the Draft, as was discussed. So Gray was released, the Texans keep only two quarterbacks.

And you saw his time with the Colts. Manning got healthy, Sorgi either is secretly healthy or will be very soon, so they went back to two quarterbacks only as usual. Did Gray make some mistakes? Sure he did, but they were correctable imo and there was no comfort level.

Cleo Lemon
Sage Rosenfels
Jim Sorgi

Geo
08-30-2008, 10:28 PM
In the cases of Rosenfels and Sorgi, you're talking about experienced back-ups.

If it was up to me though, I would definitely replace Sorgi with Gray.

Does Gray need further development? Absolutely he does, I don't disagree with that. But with that development, with experience and a full-fledged opportunity, I think he can become a good to very good starter in the league. Similar to David Garrard, as I mentioned earlier.

Ashley Lelie and Moran Norris are the only notable 49ers cut today.

I knew when the 49ers signed Lelie that it would be bad, and of course it was. He was constantly injured and caught only 10 receptions as a 49er..good riddance.

I was under the impression that Gray just thinks he's better than he really is. I'm pretty sure I read that he opted out of his last year with the Jags because he was upset the started Garrard over him, because at the time they were both pretty much unknown and very similar. As for Sorgi and Rosenfels beating him out, thats just a matter of knowing the playbook and them knowing their role on their teams, no one wants a back up who thinks he should be starting.

Actually, I was able to find a link with a bit of searching (his game logs weren't on NFL.com), and he threw three touchdowns in eight minutes (albeit against 2nd/3rd stringers.)

Imo it's most beneficial for an outdoors team to have Gray, particularly one with bad weather as the season progresses. Because he has the size and arm, and the ability to move out of the pocket when necessary, to make a team successful in those conditions. Similar to Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh, to give the mental image.

That's why if I was in charge of the Bears, my first order of business would be to get Quinn and sign him to a four-year deal (probably cheap too at this point). If the guy never becomes more than the bridge to a franchise quarterback, so be it.

As I've stated before, I don't completely agree with Angelo's and Lovie's philosophy of building a more finesse offense for the Bears - but obviously they've had great success, multiple division titles and a team that was worth every bit its Super Bowl appearance, so who cares whether I agree or not because they know what they are doing.

Admittedly, I do picture the Pittsburgh Steelers a good deal, in thinking of a Bears offense I would build. Even in that vein however, I think the Bears already have the weapons for Gray though.
Earl Bennett (~ Hines Ward) is physical receiver who can line up outside and in the slot to attack anywhere at any time, can make tough catches and and will hopefully excel in run-blocking.
Greg Olsen (~ Heath Miller) is an athletic tight end with incredible potential, I think he can be the next Shockey if he gets the full opportunity and the targets. Ultimately is unlikely to develop into the run-blocker that Shockey did after some years, but Olsen is improving from how he was out of Miami.
Desmond Clark is a veteran tight end who not only brings that run-blocking, but knows how to attack defenses either down the seam or near the sidelines.
Devin Hester (~ Santonio Holmes) brings big play ability as a deep threat, which could happen with a big quarterback with a strong arm in Gray.
Matt Forte and Garrett Wolfe, two backs who more than suffice as receivers out of the backfield.
And the Bears would be good to go. Other than the vet Clark, that's an incredibly young core to have. Hester is the most experienced player, coming into his third year. Honestly Angelo and Lovie get a bad rap, they've got the guys but now just need them to develop, and receivers take a few years to do that.

I think a team like Kansas City could also benefit considering Gray, especially when they saw a glimpse of his potential first hand, when he played against them at Arrowheard in Week 17 of the 2006 season.

The Patriots reportedly waive wide receiver Chad Jackson (http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/reiss_pieces/2008/08/source_chad_jac.html), who they traded up to get in the second round in 2006.

I hope others are starting to see what I've been saying for a while (and was criticized for by many), the Patriots aren't close to as good a drafting team as they were when they built their dynasty. And/or that with Crennel no longer the defensive coordinator and Mangenius the secondary coach, they aren't developing the talent that is good like they used to. Their saving grace is their shrewdness in free agency and trades, but even that won't be enough to win them another championship.

I've said it before but I'll repeat it here: Brandon Meriweather won't live up to his first round pick (24th overall I think it was) either. I saw Belichick put him in position to make a number of plays last year, and just about every time, he came up short. Not good, to say the very least. Maybe Belichick can turn him into a decent corner though.

No, even though they reached on him imo. Inside linebacker was such a need for them, that will make Mayo worth the pick as long as he stays healthy and plays like he can.

Of course they had a chance to draft David Harris the year before and didn't. And how their situation at offensive tackle will pan out remains to be seen, when they had a chance to draft a guy there.

Hmm. I think He could be better than Rexy and Orton as well. The only reason Rexy and Orton haven't been on three teams yet is because Jerry Angelo is dumb enough to believe they can win with one of the two and that is ultimately going to be the downfall of the Chicago Bears. Jerry Angelo is going to let the defense get too old and slow waiting on one of these two bums to step up. If Chicago doesn't do well this season, and Angelo does not draft a 1st round QB, trade for a proven winner, or sign a proven winner then he should be fired on the spot no questions asked. The Bears fans could do a better job of running the team than him.

Phil Savage isn't even close to the best GM in football. He's working his way up the ladder, but in no way is he there yet. Oh and comparing the state of the Browns and Bears, of the NFC to the AFC is a crime. Angelo was in Chicago for 6 years when he made it to the Super Bowl. We'll see were Savage is in 6 years. There was also far more talent on the Bears inn 2001 when Angelo took over than what was a sorry excuse of and NFL roster for the Browns in 2004. Also Lovie Smith is light years better than the lump of lard known as Romeo Crennel....Crennel was hired before Savage was brought in. Crennel signed and extention via Randy Lerner. I'm almost positive the Bears let Angelo pick his head coach.

Sort of, but not really. I'll go point by point.

- Correct, Savage isn't even close.

- AFC is better than the NFC, but the Browns couldn't make the Superbowl in the NFC either, at least not in the past few years.

- Angelo was in Chicago for 6 seasons, but he only held final say on the draft and coaching hires for the last 3.

- That's a VERY debateable point. We had Jim Miller at quarterback and James Allen at runningback. We were about 20-55 under Wandsteadt and just as bad under Jauron. The late 90's Bears made the Lions look like a Superbowl team. We were ******* awful outside of Urlacher, Mike Brown, and Kruetz.

- Angelo got stuck with Dick Jauron, who had final say over the draft. It wasn't until Jauron was fired and Jerry hired Lovie that he was able to build the team in his image. Since then we've gone 36-29 I believe. Not great, but not terrible.

- Angelo has shown a severe defficiancy in finding offensive talent. I think it's very questionable that Gray would beat out Orton and Grossman. however. Brian Griese couldn't do it and he's actually has a job as a #2. I wish it were so easy that we could find a franchise QB off the street. Unfortunately our line still couldn't block for him.

If Matt Cassel was your backup quarterback, you'd want him too! Gotta bring back Pep to Moss!

Also, notes on the Patriots:

- Gary Guyton is now #59, not #48.

- Jerod Mayo finally got Junior Seau's locker (it had been empty.) This might mean Seau won't come back.

- John Lynch was most likely cut because veterans get guaranteed contracts if they play in week one, so it's fairly likely he came in to learn the system and will come back for week two.

- Lynch and Jackson's roster spots are already taken - the Patriots claimed two players, Rams OT Mark LeVoir (team has a weak offensive line) and he's from Notre Dame, so he might have the Charlie Weis thing going on. The other was Jets TE Jason Pociask, who was probably signed for some advance scouting prior to the week two matchup.

There are plenty of successful players in the league who no one else wanted.

Culpepper completed 58.1% of his passes last year for 1331 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. This is playing for the Raiders, a team that was pretty much devoid of talent last year on offense (their best player was Justin Fargas), against first team defenses. Matt Cassel is a quarterback who played one good NFL game in his career, which was years ago, sucked last year against the Dolphins, and couldn't lead a scoring drive the entire preseason.

Dolphins picked up Andy Alleman to be a backup G/C. Nice move by them, if OL guru Saprano can shape him into a solid backup with Murphy, the Dolphins will only be a backup OT or 2 away from having a very good up and coming OL. Amazing how fast things can change. In two years they went from Vernon Carey, Rex Hadnot and scrubs into a line that now includes Jake Long, Samson Satele, Justin Smiley, Vernon Carey, and two young promising OGs in Donald Thomas and Andy Alleman.

The funny thing is the eagles have kept him every year and he has sucked due to injuries, getting shot etc, and he finally has a breakout preseason because he's completely healthy but it's too little too late so he gets cut. I just have a bad feeling he's gonna have 5-10 sacks while guys like Chris Clemons and Darren Howard do nothing.

Read alot he's been sweet in preseason. That's awesome. If he gets 5 sacks for us, for an eagles cast off picked up after cuts, I'll take that anyday

In the cases of Rosenfels and Sorgi, you're talking about experienced back-ups.

If it was up to me though, I would definitely replace Sorgi with Gray.

Does Gray need further development? Absolutely he does, I don't disagree with that. But with that development, with experience and a full-fledged opportunity, I think he can become a good to very good starter in the league. Similar to David Garrard, as I mentioned earlier.

I couldn't disagree more. He obviously has a lot of tools but so far he has failed to impress HC's with his leadership and intellegence otherwise there is no way he gets cut so often. Young QB's with any kind of potential usually get traded especially if they have solid physical skills. I expect you are too much in awe with his physical skills and aren't taking into account the other intangibles it takes to be a starting QB in the NFL. Some pretty solid HC's have passed on this guy, and that speaks volumns to me. I doubt he even gets picked up unless it is for some team's practice squad.

Rob Ninkovich, Trey Darilek and Anthony Armstrong were cut by the Dolphins to make room for Waiver Wire claims OG Andy Alleman of the Saints, OT Nate Garner of the Jets, and WR Brandon London of the Giants.

I read all the Alleman stuff. Definately a good pickup for Miami. Any Giants or Jets fans care to comment on London and Garner?

Ninkovich will definately get claimed, likely by a team with a need at 3-4 OLB since he looked like he was really coming on there in preseason. Chargers? 49ers? Jets?

Darilek will bounce around a few more TCs for another year or two and then be out of the league.

Armstrong should be signed to Miami's PS shortly.

to follow up on McColver, heres the link, as well as Houston signing most of the people they cut to their Practice Squad.


http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/5976473.html

In their first round of moves Sunday, the Texans signed defensive end Stanley McClover of Auburn. They were also able to add running back Darius Walker to their practice squad.

McClover, a seventh-round pick in 2006, was released by the Carolina Panthers in the final round of cuts after having an unimpressive preseason. He played in 11 games last season and finished with eight tackles. He appeared in just two games as a rookie.

In the preseason, the 6-foot-2, 263 pound end had five tackles in three appearances. To make room for him on the roster, the Texans released offensive tackle Cliff Washburn.

The Texans fielded their entire practice squad with players they had released Friday. Walker was signed to the practice squad, along with linebacker Kevis Coley, wide receiver Darnell Jenkins, defensive tackle Gabe Long, defensive end Jesse Nading, cornerback Derrick Roberson and wide receiver Mark Simmons.

Well, I guess adding a two-time Pro Bowler to a weak pass defense couldn't hurt. Sadly enough, he's probably actually going to be able to jump right in and be either a number two or three guy for the Patriots. I mean, I personally am pretty happy they're adding some proven guys to the secondary, but the report someone gave on him earlier in this topic was pretty bad, so we'll have to wait and see. Still a risk worth taking if you have the Patriots' corners.

I wouldn't get your hopes up real high with O'Neal. He is a shadow of his former self and lost his job to an UDFA who got cut by the Saints. Now that I said that though he will probably have a Pro Bowl year in NE.

As BB said, we cut Monk to get down to 75, so not only did we not think he was one of our top 53 players, we didn't think he was top 75. We added Brandon Rideau to the practice squad instead.

Maybe Monk turns it around, but by all accounts he was too slow to play wide receiver and was dropping everything. I was excited when we drafted him too, but I don't think he has a future in the NFL.

Also, you didn't add him on waivers if he's on your practice squad.

Cutting a linebacker to make sign a longsnapper isn't a surpise seeing as our longsnapper went on IR and we were carrying 7 LBs. The choice of Hodge is a bit surprising though.

Also, DT Rocky Bernard and DB Jordan Babineaux were suspended for week 1, when they are re-instated, 2 more cuts will be made to make room for them. (Kickers Brandon Coutu and Olindo Mare, DE's Baraka Atkins and Jason Babin have 1 more week to battle for a roster spot it looks like. Justin Forsett might also be on the bubble.)

There will only be 4 WR's on the active roster in week 1, Nate Burlson, Courtney Taylor, Jordan Kent and Logan Payne....and actually I'm pretty excited about these guys, although I'm not sure why Payne made it over Michael Bumpus.

Wow, I did not expect that. Ryan has been pretty good since we got him and we didn't seem like we wanted to replace him. Last year Ryan ranked 11th in average, Frost ranked 32nd. I don't see it.

As for Hodge I would have liked to hold on to him, but we don't have any room. Bishop played surprisingly well in the preseason, maybe even better than Hodge, and he's a much better special team player. Sucks to lose him, but that one makes sense. He should get a chance to play somewhere else.

Funny thing about this guy is Mike Smith said they have "had their eye on him for some time" which is strange seeing as he has done nothing (according to stats) since comming into the league.
