All excellent cuts and all one year too late. If these cats had been cut a year ago, we'd easily have beaten Seattle.

Looks like Loomis took my advice and is finally doing his job. Bout time.

Now cut PT, Bunkley and Hawthorne and I can call it a night.
I'm glad you're not the Saints GM

Re: Could Sproles contract be next in line to be terminated?

Sad, but I agree with everything Loomis is doing. Also, quite frankly, if someone were to give us 2 1st rounders for Graham I'd be happy with that too. Retooling the offense seems like the best route. I just didn't like how our offense looked last year, it felt flat. Nobody ever seemed open We need WRs. We need linemen.

I'm not so sure about Strief or DLP either ...

We are losing some key players however sometimes change is good.

These are not cuts, this is a team over haul. Man this is surprising but interesting as well. This team will look completely different next year especially on offense. The offensive scheme will look different I think. More ground and pound and less screen game.

I guarantee 2 of the 3 of PT, Bunkley, and Hawthorne will be cut.

Time to trim the fat and get some young fast athletic players to compete with the Mighty NFC West.
Bunkley just turned 30, and Hawthorne is 28.

Hardly ancient sport.

Re: Could Sproles contract be next in line to be terminated?

With needs at Corner, Safety, and more help along both lines and receiver, all of these moves make sense. I agree with Mr. Magic, Piere and Bunk could be next. Hawthorne played well last year, so I don't think they are going to move him.

I think we are in a lot better position this off-season as we know what we have along that defensive front. Cam and Gallete had strong seasons, and Hicks and Jenkins will hopfully continue to play well next season. The backers need to be upgraded as time goes on. We can survive with Lofton, Hawthorn and I would think we will try to bring Haralson back. Butler will finaly take the field this season. Our back end needs more work.

Once again, we need to hit home runs with out draft picks and quality buys in free agency.
