No, it's 75!

Till this year, after the 3rd preseason game, cut down was to 65 with a previous cutdown to 75. The 65 cutdown has been eliminated.

It's 75. But the NFL Europe exemptions also expire on Tuesday, whereas they expired on the final cutdown last season. I think the Texans will have to cut a dozen players, maybe more if they plan to make waiver claims.

Bruener stays. Kalu stays. Is it just me or did Cook play much better tonight? I think the rest are in trouble. Stone may stay if we don't pick up a better DB from other teams' cuts.

Will we cut down to exactly 75 or under 75 with the attention that we will be adding additional players from other teams?

I agree, I think simmons stays too. Its a coin flip between Luchey and Cook, Of course, I didn't watch the game so I don't know how they blocked.

I think they cut down to exactly 75, but the list they make will anticpate additional cuts to provide room for waiver pick ups.
