Jacoby got cut because Kubiak was pissed that he muffed the punt or they had to get under the salary cap.
Trindon was cut because they needed the roster spot for someone who didn't finish the season on the active roster.
Most likely he wanted Ball, Braman, & if I remember, McMannis was pretty good too.
& he got stuck with Earl Mitchell.
