It was a massive gamble. Payton usually pulls at least one of these a season. It's normally 50/50 working out. I bet he does it again before PS. There are some decent Veteran that are going to be cut or available for trade. Jerrick McKinnon would be a nice pickup if available. Not exactly healthy but could come in handy down the stretch.

I think this move was more about freeing cap for the Thomas deal and the emergence of Butler early in camp than Meredith himself. He has to have been cleared on the injury front or his release would have had to have been tied to an injury settlement.

Or possibly Theo Riddick.

That's a darn shame. I was rooting for the guy but injuries are tricky stuff.

I'm ok with this, because I predict that Tre'quan will be a pro-bowl caliber player.

Exactly what I was going to say.... After Drew Brees, the benefit of the doubt sticks long term in regards to medical judgment.

Sounds like it was a good decision to cut Meredith now and give him a chance to catch on somewhere else. If nothing else we will still keep tabs on him, can't rule out bringing him back down the road. I think he still has #2 WR potential but the injury recovery has made it difficult.

Theo is great in the passing game, can't believe he shook loose from the Lions. Put him and Kamara in the same backfield and along with Cook ... dang ... it's a 2B, 1TE set, but in reality it's more like 4WR, 1TE set . Man if this works out I can't wait for Sean to eff with defenses!
