Thought just for fun as an exercise if you had 3 second guess on players you thought should be cut or didn't want to be cut who are they and why? This is not a exercise saying you know better or to be called a troll it's just for fun so calm down. If that's how you feel you don't need to participate. Mine:
Finch - We haven't had a real returner in a while and our starting field position has suffered. I thought Finch should great potential as a Washington type of returner. Additionally I don't think you can trust Vereen to stay healthy all year and White can't seem to stay up on his feet so I'm a bit worried about our 3rd down backs. Finch showed good vision and some quickness in the holes. Now I don't think he'd be a special runner but I think he showed he could generate his own holes in the draw and has decent hands. Hopefully Finch clears waivers and makes the PS but if he doesn't and another team grabs him I could see this as something similar to when the Jets tried to sneak Woodhead to the PS.
Mallett - Now the season hasn't started so he could still be traded or released but to me I have more confidence Garp could lead us to 50/50 games if Brady goes down than Mallett can. Since Mallett is gone next year anyways I just don't see a valuable roster space is worth spending on a player we're going to lose next year and who might not even be the first option off the bench.
Vellano over Worthy - Just seems weird you traded for Worthy (btw anyone confirm if it was a conditional or a guaranteed late round pick?) then release him for someone who just seems like another JAG. Worthy isn't fast by any means but to me has more upside than Vellano.
Short of that no real complaints about the cut downs. A bit shocked about Aikens getting cut. Esp, since we don't have any other LSs on the team. Maybe Stork was practicing as a LS before he was hurt?
So how about you guys? and remember this is just for fun so if you don't want to for fun you don't have to comment.
Btw -Sam got cut in StL. I knew BB had interest before the draft and given we are a bit thin on pass rusher any chance they might give him a shot? To me he has already shown more as a pass rush this preseason than Buchanan over the last 2
Trust me, I'm an engineer!
