Loewen is probably why they rolled the dice on cutting McDaniel.

Veteran DT's on life support just don't get claimed before the season starts since their salary becomes guaranteed.

Don't know who gets the ax after that tho. Tony should be back after week 1.

I feel like we need better quality receivers.

Out of Ted Ginn, Brandon Coleman and Tommy Lee, we could lead the league in dropped passes.

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

Is anyone a little surprised that Edmunds made it over Victor?

Both looked great, but I thought Victor shined a tad more in the games. Edmunds must have splashed more in practice.

My initial impression is that with the 3 game suspension of Snead, Saints have opportunity to look at Edmunds vs Lasco for a few weeks - one likely gone by the time we fly to London...

I liked Victor, reminded me of former G'nats great RB Joe Morris and if we hadn't signed AP, he makes this roster...

Lampmann was a late cut because Lampmann vs Lasco are even gunners, Lasco had better position performance than Lampman...

Had Jake had more reps, and made the few he had count, I think Lasco was in deeper trouble...

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

According to NFL.com, the Broncos are going to cut Ward Saturday. Ward was entering the fourth year of his $22.5 million contract, but the team felt that Justin Simmons, a third-round pick in 2016, was ready to take over the role so they were comfortable parting ways with the veteran.
Broncos reportedly release safety T.J. Ward | NFL | Sporting News

Just had to post it. We traded from the third to the second to get Bell and could have just taken Justin Simmons in the 3rd

Had Simmons rated higher Bell in that draft. Just tooting my horn before the kid even starts LMAO. could end up eating crow

Bell looks to Williams back up

My short list round 2 on was
Sean Davis
Justin Simmons
Deon Bush
Mils Killebrew
Darian Thompson
Von Bell

2016
1 - Laremy Tunsil ROT Ole Miss 6050 310
2 - Jarran Reed, DT/DE, Alabama 6034 307 5.21
3 - Justin Simmons DB Boston College 6025 201 4.53
4 - Matt Judon, DE, Grand Valley State 6030 275 4.73
5 - DJ Reader NT Clemson 6025 327 5.33
7 - Kalan Reed CB Southern Miss, 5111 192 4.42

Round 1 Laremy Tunsil vs Sheldon Rankins is still developing

Round 2 it was hard to argue with Michael Thomas pick though i did go with Jarran Reed almost took Sean Davis but thought he would last till the third. wrong again.

Round 2 Justin Simmons vs Von Bell. Bell still has his rookie contract to prove me wrong, i hope he does. Simmons is getting his shot.

David Onyemata vs Matt Judon is a fight one i am really enjoying watching. both are looking really good

Stray thoughts

Go sign Ward already. He has a dead cap of $1,250,000 already. I se the Pats going after him. They are all in for another ring
