The cut to 53

Recommended Posts

Tomorrow by 4 EST teams need to make the cut from 90 to 53. That includes placing players on PUP to start the season (as we are expecting for S Clayton Geathers). In order for a player to be placed on PUP they would've had to be on the preseason PUP list. As of now Luck and Geathers are the only players left on that list. 

I've also seen Mike Chappell retweet someone that has a source saying that RB Josh Ferguson was going to be waived/injured (essentially going to IR if he clears). 

12 noon EST is the deadline for waiver claims and from there teams can start signing players to their Practice Squad. 

I figured I would at the least get the topic up that way tomorrow I can just edit this post with the list and respond with tweets about cuts/IR/Trades/waiver claims etc

 

Cuts 

- ILB Sean Spence, QB Phillip Walker, WR Bug Howard, OLB Akeem Ayers 

 

Waived/Injured

- RB Josh Ferguson (ribs) 

Trades

- WR Phillip Dorsett to NE for QB Jacoby Brissett

No surprise Phillip Walker gets cut. He never really had it together. Pelissero's tweet referred to Walker as a rookie/early camp sensation. That is what Chappell's correction means. I've heard someone say they don't think Walker should even be signed to the practice squad.

Cuts are still slowly coming in. 

 

Expecting Sheard, Simon, Basham, maybe Mingo and one more?

thought the Dorsett trade would help him. But 3 fumbles in the last preseason game didn't help.

Hilton, Moncrief, Rogers, Aiken?, Bray?

I seen that he officially passed his physical at 3:15 PM. Just ahead of the deadline.

Left it until the last moment then. 

Sounds like he's getting there, but we shouldn't rush him.

As I have said from the start of the PUP questions...if Luck will play at least a half of a game in week 6, he is going to be working with the team. 

As far as the trade....lol at the .com idiocy. Fans there have 95% trashed Dorsett and Grigs for picking him....and now 95% are whining that we got fleeced. Good god there are some idiots posting over there. Natson dropped the rock 3 times. In life, you make that mistake once in the most important exhibition of your career, you get it right and make sure you don't do that again. It happens a second time, you damned well make sure. 3rd time? 

I don't know why Dorsett was let go because he had potential, but it could be that he simply could not grasp and follow the play book. Perhaps some of those times he was open he did not even run the right route? We'll see how he develops with NE. 

I think this was Ayers last shot with us. Walker is likely headed for the CFL.

Biggest surprises....

T.Y. McGill and David Parry. I half expected Grover Stewart to go to PS.

carrying 4 QBs Luck, Tolzien, Brissett and Morris

only 3 RBs, Gore, Turbin and Mack

Ryan Kelly wasn't placed on IR-Des so carrying 10 OL

Kelly remaining looks good for short term outlook. Pope must not be able to pass protect...my guess? Parry was gone anyway, and Stewart may become  one of the better picks of that draft. McGill was serviceable, but Ballard is expecting more. Frankly...I like it. So far, signing Spence looks like the only oops....and it was a small oops.

The only cut to be claimed was T.Y. McGill (Browns) which means the rest that are eligible for practice squad are available to be signed.
