If they sign Colvin, that would make 85, according to your list.

Despite starting only 8 games (out of 12) due to injuries, he was named 2nd team SEC on the AP team. All 'em DL guys are on NFL roster now.

"Scouts.com had him pre-draft when talking about the Miss St. Bulldogs:
The top pro-prospect on the roster could well-be defensive tackle Deljuan Robinson. A hard worker who chases to get involved in the action Robinson is a leverage lineman that quickly gets off the snap and offers a burst of closing speed. More of straight-line player lacking bulk, he has potential for a system which rotates the front four."

And the Bulldogs had two other guys in the NFL today: Titus Brown and Quinton Culberson.

Pete, some of your cuts blow my mind.... Pitts, Breuner, Earl.

You always have a very interesting take, are these cuts for cap sake or because you think they aren't amongst our best 73?

Because he has been at the hooka too long. Like they are or should keep a 5th string UDFA C over Chester Pitts. Or cut Travis Johnson for a 290lb UDFA DT.

These are the guys I expect to be most "at risk":

19. 53 Coley, Kevis LB 6-1 228 Southern Mississippi 2nd
30. 58 Fenton, Mark C 6-4 295 Colorado 1st
38. 62 Jackson, Scott G 6-4 302 Brigham Young 4th
57. 97 Powell, Eric DE 6-3 268 Florida State 2nd
67. 13 Simmons, Mark WR 5-10 187 Kansas 2nd
69. 77 Spencer, Charles T 6-4 337 Pittsburgh 3rd
70. 68 Stevenson, Dan G 6-5 300 Notre Dame 2nd
81. 41 Williams, Jimmy CB 5-11 190 Vanderbilt 7th

I'm not sure about these guys:
17. 16 Carter, Tim WR 6-0 187 Auburn 7th
47. 17 McCoy, LeRon WR 6-1 219 Indiana (Pa.) 3rd

I think what could happen with a player like Cox is that if he doesn't get picked up in the meantime, he could get another look after camp.

The reason I say this is that we know what Cox offers, very good special teams ability and little chance of contributing as an every down player.

After camp when they have decided who else isn't going to contribute regularly they might bring back the specials team specialist.

So, are we running the ZBS or not ?

Weaver's cap number makes him untouchable.

T.J. had arguably his best season last year. He is still a warm body, a rotation guy, who'll never, ever progress to be anything more. I don't know what we have with the 290 guy....I do know what we have in T.J. T.J.'s cap number makes him on the bubble.

Dump the under achievers, do not fits, under talented and let's move on.

"tough cuts", per Rick Smith...they ain't cutting the guys we don't know.

I know what you mean about the cap thing; and reading some of the posts on this thread, you're not the only one who believes that either.
But I'm not sure that anyone is "untouchable". Some might have a longer leash that the others - and Weaver (and Green) may be among them - but those who aren't pulling their weight (according to the coaches - not us) will not be tolerated. Those days are gone.

Travis Johnson would cost more versus the cap than he would to keep. It wouldn't take much research to find that out, if you cared to do so.
