Default A surprise cut coming?

Ryan Clark hinted in a tweet that a surprise cut is coming. He said "its a blessing to have a job today. Trust is a funny thing! So hard to gain so easy to lose. Stay tuned. You'll see"

Hopefully it's Ward or Farrior. It's likely Aaron Smith though.

That wouldn't be a surprise at all.

I would have to believe it's Foote.

But I'm not sure how that's surprising at all. And from what Clark said it sounds like it's someone that has been on the team for a longer period of time like Smith. I'm not sure if Smith would be a surprise either though...

I'd say Foote, Farrior or Smith. Has to be. But none of them should be surprised.
If you make more than you produce, you get fired. Nothing new about that.

Why would that be when he said "happy to have a job?" That doesn't
seem to make sense.

I was happy when Foote left the first time. I was PO'ed that they brought him back last year with the other rejects, Randle el and McFadden. Unfortunately it will probably be Aaron Smith who I have always liked a lot but it is hard to keep paying a salary to a player sitting on the I/R list year after year. It doesn't make good economical sense.
