It's not a turn of events, though. This is what I think most people expected. They kept telling us how he was only on the sidelines running, and now the most he's done is fire off the line with some other offensive lineman - and from the video I saw, he was far and away the slowest one off the line.
I kept talking about how he was too big and not quick enough to make this team as a guard in the ZBS, but people told me I was wrong about that. It still might be wrong, but it sure looks like they're about to cut him loose. At this point, it's been almost two years, so I don't see the harm in sticking with the 'project', but with all that talk from Kubiak about having to only take 80 players to camp, it sure sounds like there's a decision coming soon.
I mean, there are going to be a LOT of guys in that final 80 who Kubiak KNOWS isn't going to make the team - so why not just cut that guy now and see if Spencer can make any progress at camp, then if he doesn't - PUP him again... then when his PUP time is over and he still isn't ready - THAT'S when you do an injury settlement and cut him loose.
