Default Odd Man out @ RB

Well with the drafting of slayton who is going to be the odd man (men) out? Taylor, Green Brown, Slayton and Walker no way we have 5 guys on the squad.

Chris Brown and Slaton are the only two that are assured of positions.

Green might be a June 1st cut. If he's not, then either Walker or Taylor won't make it out of camp.

Well, I would prefer it be Ahman Green - but that's not likely to happen. My guess would be either Brown or, most unfortunately, Walker. Kubiak, for whatever reason, is very high on Taylor and would probably like to hang onto him. The penalty for cutting Green would be much too steep. This leaves Brown and Walker.

Brown is injury prone and has yet to prove that he is worth the roster spot. IMO, I don't think he is worth much more in depth than Walker or Taylor. I could see him not making it past training camp. The other option is Walker, who put up fairly good numbers last season and proved to be quite effective, especially in the passing game.

I can see cutting Green for the money bu tthey have been so high on Tyalor all this time, and he is still cheap I would be surprised if they cut him. What about Walker?

I don't see walker and Taylor both on the roster. One or the other of them will be cut IMO. Same with Green & Brown, it's one or the other. I think we will have those two winners and Slaton on the roster.

When do cuts have to be made to save against the cap?

I just dont see them cutting Taylor as much as they seem to love him unlesss he looks bad during camp. Hoever if they are going to cut Green dont they need to do it before June 1 to say cap money?

You can cut two players now and designate them as June 1st cuts. If not you can cut them on June 1.

They will start off with Slaton on the practice squad and when Ahman Green goes on injured reserve the third week he will move up. That way, no one has to be cut.

If we cut Green after signing his ancient ass to a ridiculous contract Smith should be FIRED IMMEDIATELY.

Signing Moulds, Green, all those zillion year vets who are going to be in wheelchairs by the time we make the playoffs, then cutting them, just pisses me off.

DO NOT sign veteran players who aren't going to be here in three years when we're making a playoff run. It's worthless. Sign and play young kids. Even if we lose more games it just means higher draft positions, and we're getting a look at somebody who might make the team long-term and really help us.

Unlikely. If anyone is going to be spending time on the practice squad, it will be Walker, sadly enough.

No one signs players with the belief that they'll be gone in a matter of a few years. Transactions just do not work out as planned, and Green; needless to say was a massive disappointment.

I would rather not lose more games. After seven years of talks about "next season" and "the long run", I am no longer okay with the idea of sacrificing wins to progress players. The job of the GM is to bring as much talent to the team as possible. The presence of veterans, in most cases, creates more talent by bettering the younger guys.
