I do believe we are having one more player cut at some point today. So who do you think it will be?

With the news on Hartwig....I gotta think that Legursky is about to get the "ol shoulder tap.

Isn't Legursky already gone? :noidea:

No idea who "The Turk" is gonna visit today.... :noidea:

Legursky was cut...resigned.

I just checked the roster to make sure...as of 10:02 a.m. he still has a job. Check back with me at 10:05.

In another thread I guessed either Patrick Bailey or Donovan Woods, both LB's, because of the depth we already have there.

Another good possibility is Drummond.

You may be right about the LBers....Good call.

I'm gonna stick with Legursky...simply because he has ZERO special team worth.

That would be my guess, one of the MANY LBs we have in camp.

Drummond.

He hasn't looked good returning punts... And he wasn't expected to do anything BUT return punts. So, what else is he good for? Not much.

Yeah, and I know you and I were hoping Legursky would be a diamond in the rough...but after watching him play, he is just a lump of coal.

Buh Bye.

You know, my quandry for the final 53 is if they keep only 9 O linemen the odd man out has to be one of either....Hills, Stapleton or Mahan. I just dont know who they are gonna cut.

Cody Boyd

Well, I was a bit suprised. I guess this opens the door for either Vickers or Sherrod.

I didnt realize Boyd's injury was that serious...I would have never guessed that it would be a TE...with Dekker already waived after the torn ACL.

Maybe that's why Ben lined-up as a receiver last week? Of course, Leftwich becomes our starting QB and Arians moves Big Ben to TE. Genius, that Arians is I tell you.

we could poss only keep 2 te's on the roster.. if need be on goal-line set put in starks as a 3rd te for him to block.. russell could be big enough to block and do routes..

August 30 Roster cutdown to maximum of 53 players.

I'm hoping that Dez Sherrod makes it as the 3rd TE

I would have to go with drummond or woods I think one of them will be the next one cut.

In your view Gonz could that potentially make Carey Davis a bit of a chance to be cut with Sherrod being a TE / FB? That would allow an extra OL to be kept?

I think this kid has a future with the team, great blocker in college, I'm just not sure if it's this year. He's missed some time in camp due to injury which doesn't help.

I keep thinking, and I know you've mentioned the same Gonzo, this kids stature lends perfectly to Hback (that is what we call our FB position nowadays, right).

Good point Aussie. Hills situation will be tricky, as Gonzo has pointed out, the fact of whether he would clear waivers.
