As the cuts start coming in today and tomorrow, please post them here.
Look at that scrub DE they traded up for ahead of the Giants to draft in 2010 (Brandon Graham). The Giants stayed pat at 15 and took their guy JPP.
The Eagles and especially the Pats always got kudos from the national media for trading up and down the draft and accumulating picks. They were good at accumulating picks alright, but they didn't do what the draft was essentially about: pick good players. Look at the amount of disappointing picks and busts those two organizations have made in recent years (particularly Philly).
Unhappily, DE Graham has been developing into a quality pass rusher. He may be a handful this year for the Giants.
Look for for LB's are Seattle and 49rs
He's developing into a good player.
And there are some really quality backup offensive linemen on the market
Either it's utterly bizarre that the Bills had 2 Brad Smiths, both played QB & both ended up Reserve/Injured or else the 1 Brad Smith must have been severely injured to get Reserve/Injured twice. :)
Dwyer. I guess they like Jones.
Ian Rapoport @RapSheet 1m
Bills releases: Cut veteran LB Bryan Scott after trying to trade him. Also release QB Thad Lewis
I'm blame that on Dan Leberfeld on Sirius who reported it.
Because of his attitude and lack of commitment. That won't impress Coughlin. An interesting cut is Tennessee dropping Velasco. While nothing special he did grade out as middle of the pack among starting C when given a shot
We need a veteran over McCants, Cordle, etc. I think Caldwell and Rachal can get more done then our back up O- Lineman
for a look ar RB..he got cut by the Skins..
cut by the Bengals. I know a lot of people were enamored with him a couple of years ago.
Baltimore Ravens @Ravens 1m
The #Ravens have cut WR Tandon Doss, Safety Omar Brown, RB Bobby Rainey, TE Billy Bajema & OL Antoine McClain.
was cut. Man, that guy fell off of a cliff. Especially being in SD with their lack of depth at WR that speaks volumes about Meachem.
He never has a top pick. He's always at the bottom and he moves down to gather picks.
You can't cherry pick some misses and claim his drafting is poor. He plays the odds. And the odds say a good portion of 2nd-4th rounders won't make it so he gathers more of them.
Bottom line is he finds plenty of young talent and he uses it early. And it works. How does that add up to bad drafting?
Could not help Drake Nevis keep his job
The Patriots are gifted 5-6 wins per year with the current state of the AFC East and by constantly trading back in drafts he has left New England with questionable depth if and when their starters get hurt or retire. In particular he has sucked drafting DB's high
Jay-- I was one of those who were enamored of Moch. He had measurables that were off the chart.
these wins for the past 10+ years?
McCourty is an excellent player. He picked a couple of CBs in rounds 2-4 that did not work. Dowling was hurt so he gets a pass on this one.
Every year there are young guys making plays on that team.
Jay Glazer @JayGlazer 28s
Antoine Winfield has informed the Seattle Seahawks that he is going to retire.
Definitely worth a look if Baas is slow to recover. Kid can play.
ProFootballTalk @ProFootballTalk 50s
Saints announce that WR Courtney Roby and S Jim Leonhard have been cut, among others.
from Rutgers was cut by WAS. Strong inside runner. We need one until Brown gets back!
Just trying to keep track of a local kid.
we're very short at safety ATM
Kid should have never come out. Too small and slow.
take Douglas back and cut JJ. Douglas can at least return punts. I remember Reese saying they were high on him.
I thought alot of guys were high on him during the draft
Short isn't small. He plays big!
Staying in school would not have helped. He needed the money. He left. For a guy like Jamison its all about going to the right team.
He has good quicks and is strong. He can make it in the NFL right now. I think he'll get another shot. A good comp for Jamison is Chris Polk in PHI. Plenty of people said he was too small and slow. But he know how to run. So does Jamison.
...is worth a look-see IMO.
Strong runner. Opposite of Scott
A year on somebody's practice squad.
Seriously who do you think would help the Giants more this year. Dwyer from Pitt or Jamison?
Kid was talked into coming out early with the hopes of helping his family out financially. Really sad because he's solid but not sure he's any better than Cox at this point.
Tauren Poole,RB - Liked him coming out of Tennessee
Chris Harper,WR - Think he got caught up in a log jam out in Seattle.Also had some drops
Ras I Dowling - Belichick gave up on him pretty quick.I liked him more than Prince the year he came out.Heard he had a good mini camp, than he got hurt again.
Da'Rick Rodgers - Saw him against the Colts not chase down someone on a fumble,ever since than he was in the dog house.
He had some good games for Pittsburgh, and he is a strong, physical back. He can get tough yards and would be a good complement to Wilson. Maybe he could help our RZ performance.
He has played 7 and 2 games in two seasons.
Hardy AND Talley(leaving JJ)?, Bosworth(like we have an abundance of LBs)? James AND Fredericks AND Sash?
Just surprised by some of the survivors.
Especially where we NEED depth.
cut is Center Fernando Velasco from the Titans. He started every game for the Titans last year and was an RFA kept with a 2nd round tender.
Here is an article from March, when the Titans agreed to pay him.
He is only 28 and played his college ball at Georgia
Type of veteran player that will likely be signed following Week 1. Baas has had it easy as Giant-there has never been competition at Center since he was signed. Link
- ( New Window
The Giants have Kiwi who can play LB so they went with 5. Talley it looks like they will try and bring back for the practice squad if he is not claimed.
but as bad as cutting our second rounder from 2011 was, at least we didn't cut our first. Fly Eagles Fly
