Roster Cuts Announced

Over on redskinsTV they have announced roster cuts...most surprising:

Robert Johnson, TE
Kevin Simon - LB (7th rd)

All others not real surprising other than Lonie (P)....guess Frost has won the job.

Looks like ortega might have won himself a job.

Lonie is gone because they are going to find someone else to compete with Frost. Frost only makes this team if they can't find anyone better in the next day or two. God help us if they don't.

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

The Redskins are apparently bringing in some guys not currently on the team to punt in Thursday's game

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

So when is the official cut deadline for the first and second cuts?

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

I think first cuts are due this week. Maybe Tuesday? The new CBA changed stuff so I don't know for sure. I do know they have to cut to 75 now rather than 65 on the first cuts. That excludes NFLE players.

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

I am pretty surprised Ortega made it over Johnson. I guess the injury bug just couldn't escape him.

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

Nothing suprising here. Cooley/Furia are the 1/2 at TE anyways; I'd like Ortega too.

Re: Roster Cuts Announced

i was suprised that antuan edwards got cut already. He's a veteran i thought he would at least make it to the next set of cuts. Who do we have left at the safety position other than taylor, arch and prioleau.

Why be surprised with Ortega escaping the first cut. He's caught the best passes in the preseason with the exception of Jimmy Farris. That 44 yd. reception from Jason Campbell in the first game is still the best offensive play. Ortega will probably make the practice squad if has a good game without mistakes against Baltimore.

i think he makes the 53 man team. if he doesn't then we only have 2 TE's on the roster. Would we do it?
