Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

[QUOTE=hagan714;762239]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


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

I wanted DT Reed and NT Reader, too. Wouldn't that have solidified the front!

I expect some churn along the line next week though. There has to be a tackle better than Harris out there somewhere.

Cyril Richardson was cut

C 63 - Cameron Tom
TE 46 - Braedon Bowman
TE 45 - Garrett Griffin
LB 59 - Jonathan Walton
CB 35 - Malik Foreman
CB 37 - Arthur Maulet

Good list but you think Lampman is better than Carr (NE cut), Victor Cruz?

Fingers crossed for Victor.

Should take a cut QB (but not Grayson or Nassib).

Thinking TE Bowman is under-rated.

Hope they can rescue SS (hat tip to you) Erik Harris.

Hope we get the chance to re-sign DT McDaniel.

Looked up numbers of players who blew it and too often it was Maulet.

Moore is good. A very accurate QB. Not a lot of arm strength, but accurate as hell. It doesn't matter anyway, they'll keep Chase. No way someone unseats him.

Amstead just came off PUP. They don't know if he'll be ready for week 1 but way ahead of schedule.

I thought Victor beat out Lasco by a good margin in preseason. I hope we can stash him.
