Its going to be incredibly depressing to IR Delpit.

BTW when does all of this have to happen by?

Final cuts are tomorrow.

 

if Delpit goes on IR-Return he can come back after 3 weeks I believe

Got it, its going to be incredibly interesting what happens with the RB/WR depth and even the TE/FB depth.

What to do with Jano/Stanton--what to do with D'Ernest/Kelly--what to do with Billings/Togiai--what to do with Hodge/Davis

There are a looot of guys in that 3rd string rotation that I feel like are going to get cut who def. played like they could make the 53 man roster on 75% of the NFL teams.

Marvin Wilson and/or Billings get cut.

Hodge gets cut.

Stanton gets cut.

I wonder if Berry tries to trade some of these guys before cutting them for a late pick. Especially a guy like Hodge and D'Ernest who could maybe fetch a 6th/7th rounder.

Maybe to put them somewhere far away from us. Would rather not see someone like the Ravens pick them up and have it hurt us later.

Since we're on the phone, I would be comfortable with Landry/DPJ/Higgins/Hodge/Schwartz as our top 5 WR so if there is a receiver we have that isn't in that group and you are interested shoot us an offer.

It's always worth exploring, but the reality is also that teams may be reluctant to trade for a guy that they feel good about getting for free in a few hours.

We still have to have him on the 53 dont we to do that?

The initial 53, yes. SO you risk losing another guy by doing that. It's going to be a fascinating game of chess. Nice to have the nerds on our side!

If Delpit is IR'ed prior to the final 53 - he is done for the season. He must be on the 53 man roster in Sept. (and I think it is through game 1) to be eligible to return.

He can go on IR-Return starting Wednesday. Just has to be on the final 53 tomorrow

I think the idea is you hope a team likes him enough to trade a late pick as opposed to roll the dice that he chooses to sign with you once he’s cut.

I agree it’s unlikely.
