I guess that 6th receiver spot Is going to a running back. Both Boone and Thomas make the team.
Yeah. I was really surprised by them keeping 5 only.

Which is fine. I am amazed at how so many people are mad for some of the moves (not on here but in Facebook). They all say who should have stayed bit no one says who should be cut in their place.

I loved Roc when signed. I thought he would win over Boone but he should have been gone. I also think Kearse should have been let go (as much as I love his story). Lastly, I would have let Parry go and keep Ifeadi Odenigbo. Johnson can play both NT and 3 tech if needed. Additionally, Ifeadi Odenigbo had such an incredible pre-season.

I am guessing Isadora. I'm surprised they didn't keep Edison. He looked pretty good from what I could tell.

He was getting long in the tooth and
more expensive than upcoming guys ..

I'm not liking that they got rid of Beebe, Gossett and Robison. Robison was a fan favorite. I'm also surprised that they released Kendall Wright. The guy caught almost 60 catches last year. They better scoop of Beebe onto their practice squad, and they better sign another O-lineman before the start of the regular season!

My guess is Murray gets traded, probably to the 49ers since McKinnon got hurt. I think this because we kept 5 rbs.

They're not getting rid of Murray.

How? Newman shouod have been the cut. We have an abundance of DBs.
Well, he retired, so they didn't have to cut him. BRob had clearly lost a step (or two). I'm not terribly saddened by the news. The dude had a great career and now he gets to enjoy more fishing. I think our DL looks solid; the whole team does (though I wish our OL were stronger!).

Surprised about only 5 receivers while so many extras at other positions (RBs, DBs etc...).

I guess we will see what moves take place over the next few days and hopefully we get some of our promising young players into the practice squad.

I'm going to miss #96. Wish he could of last just 1 more year with us. I was convinced he would retire at the end of this year.
