i mean i like greg warren and all, but getting rid of his vet minimum could save $200,000 and was he really missed after the giants game?
I think Legursky was on the practice squad once Simmons and Smith were on IR and Parquet moved to the active roster. I think Warren is better, but Legursky was working with a former Bears long snapper to improve his skills.

Imagine if we have a backup center who can actually long snap. It frees up a roster spot for somebody else, but I dont think you wanna just toss Legursky in right away without any game experience. I hope he gets some reps in camp and preseason.
