    Ontario, Canada
    Tuesday at 2PM is the deadline

    My projections/Best guess;

    Offense 26
    3 QB; Tua-White-Skylar
    5 RB; Moster-Wilson-Achane-Ahmed-Ingold
    4 TE; Smyth-Saubert-Kroft-Higgins
    6 WR; Hill-Waddle-Berrios-Ezekuma-Anderson-Cracraft
    8 OL; Hunt-Armstead-Conner-Wynn-Jackson-Feeney-Lamm-Jones

    Defense 24
    5 DL; Wilkins-Seiler-Davis-Ogbah-Pili
    4 OLB; Chubb-Phillips-Ogbah-Reed
    4 ILB; Baker-Long-Riley-AJ Johnson
    4 Saf; Holland-Jones-Elliott-McInley III
    7 CB; Ramsey-Howard-Apple-Kahou-Smith-Noah I-Bethel

    Special Teams 3
    Ferguson-Sanders-Bailey

    Notes;
    -Once Ramsey is Placed on IR. I think We will add a 9th offensive lineman off waivers. (Or bring back Cotton.)
    -Hopefully Skylar is replaced by a waiver claim
    - I believe PUP players are not included in 53. So Needham doesn’t factor in until he is activated.

    Tough cuts;
    -Eichenberg; Time to cut bait here. Wynn and Jones are better.
    -Tindall; Didn’t bring an aging vet like AJ this late in camp for nothing. Fangio guy.
    -T.Williams and Campbell; Health concerns and Bethel is so valuable on ST.
    -Cedric Wilson and Braylon Sanders; Team can’t quit Cracraft. He earned it though IMO
    -Tanner Conner; Higgins gets the WR converted to TE spot.
    - Gaskin; We just can’t keep 6. He’ll get picked up by someone quick.

    Reed seems like an interesting cut, but I don't recall his name much during camp

    How about seeing if Arizona Cardinals would trade and give us Kelvin Beachum. They're having a fire sale.

    I'd see if Rams would trade Higbee, he would feel blocking and receiving TE need.

    I think one of the beat reporters said they may bring Reed back after cutdown day when Ramsey goes on IR.

    More cuts;

    I think Colt is valued around the league, and someone will show him the value with a decent contract.

    I wish it could be us, he is as solid as it gets for a backup qb. If we had him instead of bridgewater.. who IMO quit on the team with that finger injury and never wanted to be here… i think we win 1-2 more games that tua wasnt in..

    We are on the hook for 2M for Feeney. We signed him 4 months ago and he never played a down for this franchise.

    This team just can’t evaluate OL. It never fails to amaze. I know it’s a small miss. But it’s another one in a long line.

    Jake Fromm was cut… another QB I’d take a look at.

    The correct decision. But good luck to him. He should catch on somewhere quickly.

    I like him, but agree that he should be the one they let go. Wouldn't doubt if N.E. shows interest.:huh1:

    And that persists through multiple HCs, OCs and offensive line coaches. I know Grier goes out and gets them, but all the staff they have had can’t recommend even a couple of decent players?

    There are going to be quite a few interesting names in the backup qb pool by this afternoon. Definitely an area we need an upgrade in after this preseason.

    I would assume the new staff did which is how they ended up with Armstead and Williams.

    Still probably going to end up with two turnstiles starting though

    He should be back, but perhaps they reworked Wilson to let Chosen leave?

    Or to make room for Jonathan Taylor.


    Appears Nickerson and Brooks surprisingly made the team. Some good stories there!

    Not looking great for Noah I right now….

    Iggy is about as big a Draft Bust as I can remember.

    Dion Jordan is worse only because they traded up for him.

    His only highlight as a Dolphin:

    Close to as bad of a player but 3rd pick vs 30th is a world of difference. Few picks later and people wouldn't care as much about him being bad.

    It's weird, because even when we make seemingly good decisions it goes wrong. Remember when we drafted Eichenberg and the consensus in the draft community was that he wouldn't be elite but he would be the definition of solid and reliable. Then he came to Miami and now he looks like he's never played OL in his life.

    Exactly - it wasn’t a blockbuster pick, but no one was bashing us for making it, either. IIRC, he had some sort of impressive stat his senior season - either no sacks allowed or no penalties against.

    Just read that he was a passenger in a car that was involved in a drive by shooting, so good to see a pillar of the community heading to Miami.

    We know what Skylar and White are. Zappe has had some success. I mean, he can't be any worse.
