Re: Recent League Salary Cap Cuts

Sportscenter just threw up a list of potential salary cap casualties. At the tope of the list were Derrick Brooks and Simeon Rice. Also, Billy Volek and a couple other names I recognized, but can't remember right now.

I think Bugel was the o-line coach back in those days, but he couldn't get Kleine to measure up to his potential. I'm not saying Bugel isn't a good coach, but a player must have the motivation, character, and work ethic to improve before a coach can fix his problems. That might be the problem with Mike Williams from the Bills.

i remember kleine well... you could also add andre johnson to the list. lasted barely 2 season with the skins despite being a first round pick..

you need feet to be a good lineman, not just size

And Pat Yasinskas, of the Charlotte Observer, reports the Carolina Panthers have released LB Brandon Short.

Re: Recent League Salary Cap Cuts

I don't know if this has been brought up, but are teams being perhaps too hasty in cutting players? I mean you cut a guy like Will Shields thinking you have to because there's no CBA in place. But then what if a deal is reached?

Re: Recent League Salary Cap Cuts

Re: Recent League Salary Cap Cuts

Just saw this on ESPN.


"A high-level source with one NFL team told ESPN.com the league has informed teams that any player placed on waivers during the period of uncertainty (which includes players in this story) can be recalled from waivers until there is more clarity about the pending free-agency period."

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2351727

Also has Shields been offically cut?

"(Rotoworld) Despite a FoxSports.com report to the contrary, Will Shields has not been released by the Chiefs.Impact: Perhaps the announcement will come later, but Shields may at least have a three-day reprieve to see if a new CBA can be worked out."

Re: Recent League Salary Cap Cuts

Thanks SkinsFanfrom 21122, I got the Shields story from FoxSports, so I'll remove his name until another source verifies it.

Also, I guess this list may be wrong now that teams can "take back" their cuts. What a friggin mess. Anyone reminded of Election 2000? News story, retraction, news story, retraction.
