Post Draft Warm Up
 
It will take a bit to take in and analyze everything about the draft. One of the next thing on the agenda will be June 1st cuts.

Who do ya think might be need to be chopped?

Gandy 5.25mil base, rework?
Thomas 2.1mil base, THAT is why they wanna trade him
Conwell, 1.1mil base, $100K per catch last year
Ruff, 1.1mil base, spendy for what ruffness he did last yr
D. Rodgers, 1.1mil base, back surgery at age 34

I think these are 5 valid reasons Mike McKenzie\'s contract is not being addressed at this time. There are bigger crawfish to boil right now.

If Fisher looks completely healed, or we draft a WLB day 1, I could see Rogers cut.

If we draft another MLB I can see Ruff cut.

If Hilton looks good in camp, and we don\'t move Boo, I could see Conwell get the axe. Conwell is a very good blocker though. Something Boo isn\'t. Boo may be in more danger than Conwell.

Gandy needs to restructure, but he has us by the nads right now, so he may not.

Thomas\'s salary is OK. If he\'s completely healed I\'d say he\'s a keeper. But if we draft a young CB on day 1, I say we shop him.

I think Conwell and Rodgers could very well be goners.

As I hear it Danno, Thomas is already being shopped. He may be gone on draft day.

Gandy has to rework. I don\'t care if he think he has us by the balls. He can redo or be cut. Especially if we draft an OT. Sorry Stinch, no more free rides. Time to get under the gun if something can\'t be done with Gandy.

Rodgers can go. I don\'t see him contributing on D or special teams again. Ruff can be kept for goalline or jumbo formations to plow in against the run, but that\'s it. Needs to redo his deal also or be cut.

oh, i forgot about sullivan. i can\'t remember, did we conclude he will have to be kept into the season? i tell ya, if he doesnt get on the stick i would get all of the $9mil of abuse i could get in. have the o-line strictly practice double teams and pancake blocks on him.

Yes, we are basically stuck with Sully, at least for this season. :mad2:

I say any or all the last 3 on your list.
Gandy could be like the Gallery deal in Oakland (if we draft a good one and the first mistake he make\'s then bye bye.)(wont be let go, yet still would be a killer backup)
I see Thomas returning to his old self. (hoping anyway)
Either what i\'ve said will happen or they all will start (hard to tell with our FO)
Boo and Sully will get one more shot.
