Cowboys | Q. Butler released
Wed, 23 Aug 2006 11:35:53 -0700

Mickey Spagnola, of DallasCowboys.com, reports the Dallas Cowboys have released CB Quincy Butler.

Quincy Butler

COLLEGE POS. HT. WT. PICKED BY ROUND/
OVERALL

TCU CB 6-1 190 /

Butler is still learning the cornerback position and needs to develop his skills in single coverage. He knows how to react well in a zone, and he could slide into the safety spot at the next level if scouts think he's too raw to be a cornerback.
http://www.msnbc.com/modules/sports/...p?playerid=229

Position: CB
Class: Sr
School: TCU
Conference: Mountain West
Ht., Wt.: 6-0.5, 190
40 Time: 4.55
Grading System


BIO: Junior college transfer who immediately moved into the starting lineup at TCU. All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 53/5/8.

POSITIVES: Athletic defensive back with solid ball skills. Effective facing the quarterback and quick breaking to the throw. Fluid flipping his hips and loses nothing in transition turning to run with receivers. Aggressive, supports the run and works well with safeties. Effective pedaling in reverse and quickly gets his head back around, finding the ball.

NEGATIVES: Quick out of his backpedal and prefers to side shuffle. Lacks the great recovery speed. Does not display a decisive move to the ball and gives up positioning to opponents.

ANALYSIS: A zone cornerback with potential at safety, Butler has displayed progress the past two seasons and is a solid developmental prospect.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

Cowboys | Saldi released
Wed, 23 Aug 2006 11:34:51 -0700

Mickey Spagnola, of DallasCowboys.com, reports the Dallas Cowboys have released LB John Saldi.


Position: OLB Number: 05
School: Texas Tech Height: 6'5
Status: Declared Weight: 239

This is a outside linebacker that is very intriguing athletically speaking, he has all the measurables you look for in a player at his position
What is so frustrating is to see him on the field and show all the characteristics of a excellent athlete but not show the instincts nor the aggressiveness needed for even the collegiate level
His agility and lateral hip movement from side to side for a player of his size is rare, he even has the ability to drop in pass coverage pretty well, he just plays the game too passively
I guess I am hoping for the light to come on for this player, and he develops and works on his technique & film study, along with becoming a more aggressive player on the field, I will look for his progress and followup on evaluating him

Cowboys | Peterman released
Wed, 23 Aug 2006 11:32:13 -0700

Mickey Spagnola, of DallasCowboys.com, reports the Dallas Cowboys have released OT Stephen Peterman.

OVERVIEW
Peterman was the anchor on an LSU offensive line that returned four starters in 2003 … He moved to right guard during the spring and played there in 2003 after starting 25 games over the previous two seasons at left guard … He is a big and strong player who plays with a great deal of intensity … Tough as nails competitor who is relentless, he was called the "the heart and soul of the LSU line" by the team's coaching staff … A throwback player who thrives in the trenches, he is a converted tight end, who has also played on the defensive side of the football during his career with the Tigers … He blocks with equal effectiveness on running or passing situations … Appeared in 48 games for the Tigers, starting 35 times.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Has a barrel chest and thick, muscular arms … Has adequate initial quickness to gain position coming off the snap … Powerful drive blocker that will strike with good force and pop … Mauler-type for the ground game who can get low to base block and root out the defensive tackle … Plays with an aggressive nature, showing a very physical hand jolt on the short pull to take defenders down … Can easily anchor vs. the defensive tackle and looks to help when uncovered … Can strike and get movement on a defender in his initial burst … Uses his hands with great efficiency to get under the defender, locking on with force to sustain … Will not hesitate to use "any means possible" to take down his man … Has the anchor and wide leg base needed to defeat stunts and the bull rush … Very hard worker in the weight room who leads by example.
Negatives: Needs to be monitored, as he tends to get overweight (his large mid-section prevents him from generating lateral agility) … Loses balance and does not sustain well when asked to block on the move (much better at the line of scrimmage) … Has limited body control working in space (frequently on the ground in attempts to get to the second level) … Has limited lateral slide ability, which causes him to get beaten by defenders coming off the edge … Borderline student who needs to be pushed … Looks a step too slow when asked to pull on sweeps, but stays low in his pads and compensates with a very punishing hand punch … While he generally gets away with his over-aggressiveness, his tactics have resulted in costly penalties (nine in 2003).

AGILITY TESTS
5.38 in the 40-yard dash … 405-pound bench press … 550-pound squat … 275-pound power clean … 21-inch vertical jump … 7-foot-5 broad jump … 32½-inch arm length … 10-inch hands … Right-handed
http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/stephen_peterman

We know the kid but how is the knee? sat out 2005 and had it rebuilt.

One of the four in there was Peterman. Had to do a double-take. The guy could move. He had pretty good feet. Moved laterally really well. Was really quick. Seemed to have more agility than I ever imagined.

"That's me, that's how I was before (the injury)," said Peterman, reminding of how he tore two of the right knee's three major ligaments (ACL and MCL) that final preseason game of what was supposed to be his rookie year. "For a while there, it was hard on my knee"

Titans | Holt released
Wed, 23 Aug 2006 10:47:10 -0700

Jim Wyatt, David Boclair and Paul Kuharsky, of the Tennessean, reports the Tennessee Titans released CB Cedric Holt Tuesday, Aug. 22.

Position: CB Number: 13
School: North Carolina Height: 5'11
Status: Declared Weight: 190


He is a player at the cornerback position who shows good ball skills
He is a thinly built athlete who moves fluidly around the field, who possesses quick and fluid reactions to plays on the field
The one time I was able to see him in game action he showed more of a strength on pass defense, where he was active, aggressive and provided tight coverage
Though I would have liked to see him more physical at supporting the run, because until he improves in this area of his game he will not be considered a complete corner to me
Though there is a good chance he will not be drafted, his natural athletic upside and seemingly effortless movement during pass defense, should make him a player NFL teams should be intrigued by and want to bring into their training camps

Falcons | Lake released
Thu, 24 Aug 2006 22:01:02 -0700

AtlantaFalcons.com reports the Atlanta Falcons have released DT Antwan Lake.

Standing an impressive six foot four and over three hundred pounds, Atlanta
Falcons defensive tackle Antwan Lake has been waiting for the 2006 football
season all his life. Undrafted three seasons ago, Lake was signed as a
restricted free agent to compete for the starting defensive tackle position
opposite Pro Bowler Rod Coleman this preseason. Lake and incumbent
Chad Lavalais are the front runners to claim the position that coach Jim
Mora declared up for grabs at the start of the off-season. One of the biggest
weaknesses of the Falcons in 2005 was their inability to stop the run up the
middle, which is exactly where Lake fits in. Although Lake has the ability
to get to the quarterback, he is more useful to Atlanta as a run stuffer. The
Falcons have one of the quickest defensive lines in the NFL with newly
acquired John Abraham and Falcon veteran Patrick Kerney, however the
cost of sporting that lineup is being soft at stopping the inside run.....
http://www.thelinemen.com/featured_d_lineman2.html

2005 Season (Falcons)
Played in 13 games with two starts and registered 21 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one safety.
Started third career game vs. New York Jets (10/24) in place of an injured DT Chad Lavalais (back spasms) and led the defensive line with five tackles in addition to posting his first sack of the season. The sack on QB Vinny Testaverde forced a fumble that was recovered by DE Patrick Kerney and led to a field goal.
Registered five tackles and a career-high 1.5 sacks at Detroit (11/24).
Recorded the Falcons lone safety of the season vs. New Orleans (12/12) as he sacked QB Aaron Brooks in the endzone.
Inactive at Chicago (12/18) and at Tampa Bay (12/24) before being placed on Injured Reserve (shoulder) on
December 27.

Panthers | Toeaina waived from team
Sat, 26 Aug 2006 11:54:48 -0700

Panthers.com reports Carolina Panthers OT Albert Toeaina has been waived from the team.

Class: 4Sr
School: Tennessee
Conference: Southeastern
Ht., Wt.: 6-5, 350
40 Time: 5.35
Grading System


BIO: Junior College transfer who started the past two years at right tackle.

POSITIVES: Big, nasty blocker best in confined quarters. Strong at the point, gets movement from run blocks and seals defenders from the action. Patient in pass protection, jolts opponents with hand punch and effectively uses angles. Rarely gives up an inch of room and works hard to annihilate opponents.

NEGATIVES: Ineffective in space, lacks lateral blocking range and has trouble in motion. Stiff, which hurts his ability to finish blocks.

ANALYSIS: A solid prospect on the right side, Toeaina has the skills for a power running offense. A likely backup who can see action as a spot starter at the next level.

PROJECTION: Early Sixth Round
