    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Studdard should try out as a NT.

    What does that put us at in terms of roster size?

    Well, there goes the theory that Hartman will be coming back to do the kick offs. Guess we are stuck with short kick offs for the season if someone picks him up.

    I was thinking Meggett would be safe from this wave of cuts. I was expecting him to carry some of the workload for the final preseason game.

    Gaither played well on special teams. He in Megget were just caught in a numbers game. They should both go to the UFL and get some playing experience. Both should be in someone's camp again next year.

    Hartmann gone? I guess Graham will handle the punts now...wondering if we can resign Hartmann from the street once he is healthy?

    My guess is they all go to Grimes to see if he's worth a spot on the 53.

    I don't think anyone else is in a rush to pick up a P serving a suspension and coming off an injury. He might still be our guy...or maybe not.

    6th Rounder Mondek also got cut. Another draft bust. So we had 89 and now we down to 75. Anyone has the complete list of 14 players

    This doesn't mean Hartman won't come back. Just doesn't make sense to keep him on the roster. Then we'd have to guarantee his salary.

    I'm sure Hartmann is a safe cut for now due to the suspension. Nobody would pick up an injured AND suspended punter from the wire.

    As much as I liked Meggett during the draft process, I am not too surprised to see him cut. He must not have done at well at practice as Grimes did, because he sure didn't see a lot of playing time during the pre-season. I expect him to land on the PS though. He has talent.

    Hartmann is a bit of a surprise, but again, not terribly so. He is suspended for the first 3 games of the season, and Jones is a heck of a punter.

    Gaither, Johnson, and Studdard are not surprises.

    Mondek is not either, but it is too early to declare him a draft bust. I fully expect him to score a gig on the PS as well. Athleticism at his size is hard to teach.

    Glad to see Kubiak's growth and transformation to the Gordon Gecko phase of power wielding. He's cutting (ir-ing) guys who have personal ties. Godfather phase awaits. Recently demoted Capo Wade Adams quietly watches.

    610 hitting on all the insecurities precisely. TJ exposed but also acknowledging the team around him was weak as hell. Right side starting O-line struggling. Holliday saved by Martin fumbling twice.

    Yes, because we've done so terribly in the draft...:vincepalm:

    The guys on 610 are terrible. They reported that Bret Hartman was using steriods.

    And I thought we got an extra roster space for Hartman because of the suspension. It seems weird that if that is the case why we would cut him. But it is only a kicker...

    C Thomas Austin, ILB Omar Gaither, P Brett Hartmann, WR Bryant Johnson, WR Mario Louis, RB Davin Meggett, T Nick Mondek, DE Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, FB Derrell Smith, G Kasey Studdard, CB Torri Williams

    Called that one .... :kitten:



    Am surprised they cut Brett Hartmann .... but Jones has been really good holding PAT's and FG's .... Seen at least two bad snaps that he handled.

    Forsett and Grimes are going to see a ton of work Thursday.
