Default The cuts have already started

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

Quote:
Quarterback Trent Green and wide receiver Marty Booker are among nine players cut by the Miami Dolphins.

Other notable cuts by the Dolphins on Monday include tackle L.J. Shelton and defensive tackle Keith Traylor. Both played key roles for Miami this past season, when the Dolphins sputtered to a franchise-worst 1-15 record.

The Dolphins also waived tackle Anthony Alabi, defensive tackle Anthony Bryant, tackle Marion Dukes, defensive tackle Marquay Love and tackle Joe Toledo.

I'll take Keith Traylor for a stop gap DT. This guy is still a hoss, put him between Mario and Amobi and watch him eat offensive lineman.

The Panthers release Morgan & Wahle.

Quote:
The Carolina Panthers have released linebacker Dan Morgan and guard Mike Wahle, the team announced Monday.


"These were tough decisions, because Dan and Mike have been valuable members of our team and have done everything we have asked of them over the years," said head coach John Fox. "They are both very dedicated to the game of football and earned the respect of everyone who worked with them."
No word on the fate of Mr. Mittens.

EDIT:

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Holdman was drafted in the 1999 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. That year, Holdman started as nickel linebacker and on special teams before landing a starting spot on the weak side. He played in all 16 games, and had 75 tackles. He also had two sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 11 special teams tackles. Holdman had a superb sophomore season in 2000, in which he had 87 tackles. He also added 9 tackles on special teams. In 2001, Holdman came back strong after rehabilitating his injured left knee, starting 15 of 16 games, recording a career-high 145 tackles and 3 forced fumbles. Unfortunately, in 2002, he started the first four games before suffering a season-ending right knee injury. In his fifth season with the Bears in 2003, he returned from a knee injury to start 13 games and totaled 79 tackles. Holdman was then traded to the Cleveland Browns in 2004, where he appeared in all 16 games, starting 14, and posted 110 tackles, a half sack and three pass breakups. He then moved to the Washington Redskins in 2005, where he played in 14 games, starting 7 of them. On April 26, 2007 he signed a one-year deal with the Broncos. On February 11, 2008 the Broncos released him.

Sounds like a cheap player. I wouldn't be suprised if we signed him. xD

Houston ties as well (one of my clients).
We could probably land him for a minimum. Was actually a decent player when with the Bears. Tapered off late in his career.

Wouldn't suprise me if we took a look at him.

His athleticism is balanced by his lack of experience at tackle and it will probably take time to develop him into a complete offensive lineman. "

Yea that's his Achilles’ heel for sure, he's very injury prone. In college and then the NFL.
But because of his athleticism he's got ZB written all over him and new OC &
OLine guru Gibbs may like his physical profile enough and decide the Texans should try to sign him.

Andre Ware mentioned this morning that LJ Shelton tried out for the Texans preceeding the 2-14 season. He (Andre) also said at the time, he thought that the Texans would sign Shelton.... FWIW.
