    Jordan Tripp got cut. F*** this team! Hopefully he gets stashed on the PS and gets the call up. He has too much upside to simply be tossed aside.

    I'm going to wait a while before seeing it as any kind of breakthrough, as Varga and Wegher are likely 53rd on their respective rosters or close to it. Either or both could still be cut, and even if not could be relegated strictly to special teams.

    Even Zenner may be only a special teamer, while Burkhead is perennially underused and Gerhart has been "caste" aside as the scapegoat for his team's terrible o-line and bad offense.

    But then again, there are scenarios where they could get significant time running the ball, especially Toby and Zach. Hope for the best but never be surprised by the worst.

    Did the Dolphins keep any of their White LBs? Retread/bust Kelvin Sheppard reportedly is starting inside, or at least competing with Misi, which says volumes about the agenda of the organization.

    Zach Vigil made it as I expected he would. Tripp should have made it over Hewitt as Tripp has far more upside. The problem with Tripp is that he's been somewhat injury prone and we know what that means for white players.

    You forgot Chase Reynolds. I don't think Reynolds has lined up as a running back(even as a decoy) during the regular season though.

    Arizona cuts WRs Jaxon Shipley and Trevor Harman.

    They also cut both of their quotabacks - Logan Thomas and Philip Sims which is good news.

    Leonardfan, someone may have already posted, but when or did the Rams cut Liberty University's FS Jacob Hagen?

    .....and is he all white? Some of his pictures look like he could be mixed. He was a great FS in the Big South Conference for Liberty.

    He was cut by the Rams. He looks mixed to me.

    Looks like Minnesota also has 22 whites on the final roster.

    Maybe Chip Kelly is thinking he will pick up Cassel as their 3rd QB. That is the only thing that makes sense. If you need a 3rd QB, which you do since Bradford is so injury prone, why wouldn't you keep Barkley, who's been on the team for a couple years and knows the system, or Tebow? Why would you go out and try to find a quality QB on the market at this point? Cassel is the only QB out there who would be a step up from Barkley or Tebow.

    I really hope Kelly doesn't want to trade for Griffin to be their 3rd QB. What a step down that would be. Not only does he suck, but he's as injury prone as Bradford.

    And that number seems to diminish when you realize they have a starting quota-back.

    I live in the Philadelphia area. One local sports radio "insider" said the Barkley trade was going to happen before it happened and he also said Tebow would be released the day before it actually happened; he seems pretty credible. Now, he's saying the reason is Kelly did not think Barkley was a player that fit his system long term nor did he think Tebow was good enough. According to this Eagle "insider," Kelly has his eye on a young QB who has/will be waived by another NFL team who could possibly be groomed as a starter or backup down the road. If he's not available they may try to trade for him.

    That is disappointing to hear. I think Tebow loves the game and should continue playing it wherever he can. The CFL got some guys real serious look back in the league like doug flutie and jeff garcia. He should really consider the CFL so can continue to improve and show the NFL he can become the qb is he perceived he can never become. By next year he could become the most coveted FA qb on the market if things go his way. The nfl needs Tebow. They don't want him, but they need the clean image because the image right now it not looking good with goodell in charge.

    I never thought of that before but you're exactly right. Between all the thuggish TNB and the buffoon Goodell and Deflategate, the NFL really could use Tebow and his clean cut image.

    The Bucs have deigned to keep Adam Humphries on the roster after his incredibly strong pre season. Even the announcers during the last pre season game were saying "Can he just get his jersey now!?"

    I wouldn't get too excited tho. As soon as some bum veteran DB or sumo gets cut, Lovie Smiff will cut Humphries to make room.

    This will be an interesting to keep an eye on. I hope it's not a quotaback. The only obvious connection that comes to mind is Bryan Bennett who played at Oregon when Kelly was there. Other than that it sounds like it could be gremlin the turd.

    It is Steven Morris an obvious quotaback selection.

    No way is he better than Tebow. Give me a break. I also saw the Dolphins got Logan Thomas on waivers - what a joke.

    Logan Thomas sucks, Even if I were a DWF, I could honestly say I've seen him enough to decide he's a bad pick up

    Huh, I remember his dad, Rich Mauti. He played wide receiver for the Saints in the late seventies, early eighties. He made his home in the New Orleans area after football.
