Good Morning Gang Greeners!
So the final cuts were announced last night, and there really weren't too many surprises:
RB — Terrance Ganaway
WR — Royce Pollard, Jordan White
TE — Hayden Smith
OL — Paul Cornick
LB — Ricky Sapp
DB — Donnie Fletcher
These seven joined the 15 that were cut earlier in the day:
WR — Joseph Collins, Eron Riley
OL — Robert Griffin, Fred Koloto, Matt Kroul
TE — Tarren Lloyd
DL — Jay Richardson, Martin Tevaseu
LB — Marcus Dowtin, Brett Roy
DB — LeQuan Lewis, D’Anton Lynn, Julian Posey
P — Spencer Lanning
So what happens now? all of these players will make their way through the NFL waiver wire. If they clear waivers, the players who are eligible for the practise squad can be re-signed Saturday afternoon. We will continue to look at any players that have been cut from other teams and the 53 we have now may not be the 53 that we finish with.
The current 53 man roster was given the weekend off, and they will return to the practise facility Sunday night, ready for their first practise Monday morning. Football season is just a week and a day away. We will do our best to keep you up to date with any signings we may make over the next few days.
Are there any players in here you think we should not have cut? I was actually a little disappointed to see Donnie Fletcher get cut, I thought he had a better pre-season than Trufant. Jordan White was a little inconsistent through camp but then again at least he played unlike Chaz. Dowtin has some talent and I still find it such a shame that Ricky Sapp can't seem to stay healthy.
