    Wow there sure are a few suprises on that list.

    But it is good to see they are dumping Thomson and going with 2 QB's and freeing up a roster space. Not to meantion dumping Manuel It's about time he's gone.

    I was half surprised but all thrilled to see his name.

    Thompson isn't afraid to admit his mistakes. Atleast that's what I'm getting from these type of moves.

    Deshawn Wynn makes the final roster?

    5 halfbacks now including Grant as well as Morency, Herron, and Jackson.

    Yeah, how the heck does Wynn make the team? Maybe Wynn will be the Koren casualty?

    I'm surprised we couldn't find any willing trade partners for any of these guys.

    I like Corey White better than Wynn.

    Oh well, I trust TT\MM.

    I think the big news here is Patrick Dendy was cut!

    lol



    I must say I'm surprised Miree is gone. Does this mean we could start TWO rookies in the backfield? Jackson AND Hall? Hall being a former LB'er right?

    If I'm correct, we are "light" at QB with 2, tight end with 2 and linebacker with 5.
    The roster includes 6 CBs and 11 defensive linemen.

    Maybe TT\MM have their eye on a newly waived player, and will bring him in to share the FB duties with Hall.

    I don't think this ends with Ryan Grant.

    I'm surprised Tramon Williams (over Dendy) and Wynn made the final roster.

    Makes sense to keep a lot more defensive players. That's probably because we are pretty well set, talent and depth wise, at all the offensive positions.

    Are you saying we need 3 QBs?

    Why do you have to come in here and piss in our cheerios?

    Is that right, Lare?

    Yup, someone's got to be the fall guy. Surprized he made the team.

    Why give something up when you know the guy will be cut and you can pick him up for virtually nothing?

    I think Wynn will become the second fullback.
    I be surprised if they don't sign another TE and possibly put Williams on the pratice squad. I mean even the emergency TE Moll has injury problems.

    They will pickup players from other teams and put them on practice squad too so I would expect some new faces on the practice squad as well as some old ones.

    I can't believe they kept DeShawn Wynn. In my opinion he's gone IF Koren is allowed back and once Morency gets healthy.

    I think that too.

    Makes sense since the FB reads are really similar to HB reads in the ZB scheme.

    But I wonder how the newly acquired RB Grant fits in to all of this... that's 6 HBs in total currently on our roster.

    I'm glad we're going with 2 QBs. That's all we need. Will free up another position.

    Now, we don't have a burner WR. My guess is our peeps know that Koren will be coming back, which is a good thing.

    My only question though is we have only 2 TEs, right? Can we make due with only 2? Maybe we'll pick one up.

    Let's keep in mind that there will be more personnel moves in the next few days. The cuts mostly make sense to me. I would rather have two fullbacks, though. Maybe Wynn will fill that role, but I don't know that he's played at fullback at all yet in practice.

    Mostly I'm glad Manuel is gone, and I'm glad Peprah made the cut (at least so far). It was time for Dendy to go. He was getting beaten constantly in practice.
