    I wondered if Bakari Grant might be expendable with the way a couple of the newer (cheaper) receivers had performed through camp.

        For sure. All part of the business.

          Anyone have those 2 on the surprise cut list? For imports that means Holley starts and a couple of the new guys are backup

            Tough day for the emotions. I won't argue with the decisions. Just sad to see Sixer go,

              People are going to be upset but we are at point when vets become expendable because of the play of new guys

                Doesn't mean Holley starts. Could be JWL. JWL excelled outside and a week into camp it seemed obvious he was going to find a home. They then moved him inside to Grant's spot. I figured that meant that they were going to groom him for next season, but maybe they feel he is ready now.

                    Bagg just because of the NI Rec shortage, but I could see Grant being moved if other stepped up. Liked both players

                      Man Grant and Baggs that is a tough pill to swallow. Yeah it's part of the business but it still sucks.

                        It's seems really weird cutting a 1000 yard receiver.

                          Everyone knew we were deep at receiver. Stronson used “embarrassment of riches” to describe them half way through camp. A vet cut that makes a decent salary shouldn’t be a surprise. I like Bakari but he’s no DC or Rosy, he was really a good third / fourth option who performed very well last year but not irreplaceable. Was probably making around $100k too

                            I can see Grant getting cut; JWL and others seem to be moving up. Bagg is a surprise as I am thinking we need to start a Can receiver and I thought he would be that guy and mentor the young guys. Plus we don’t have a lot of Can depth at that spot.
