Working to get a few more things confirmed, but here are 5 guys they have signed for the 8 man practice squad.

DE Alex Buzbee (Georgetown kid showed well)
CR Byron Westbrook (local kid was an immediate hit but has a ways to go)
LB Anthony Trucks (he worked his butt off in camp and glad to see him rewarded)
LB Matt Sinclair (he and Chris Wilson often last two guys off the field adn out of the building on defense)
CB John Eubanks (went neck and neck with torrence for 5th CB spot)

That's a pretty good haul for the defnese and seems like they were able to keep most of what they wanted.
I would think Bell the FB and Jordan Plamer (QB) would be there as well unless someone else signed them. Maybe Lefotu, too.

Skins also looking around at WRs and other options for the roster.

Will post more when I get it.
I am EXTREMELY happy that Trucks and Eubanks made the practice squad. I really think Trucks especially could develop into a really solid backup, and Eubanks into a 3rd or 4th CB.


Oh yeah, you should credit JLC on that too.

Of course JLC gets the credit for breaking the news, that's a given. I'm very happy Buzzbee, Westbrook and Trucks made it, let's see who else we add.

Moses is gone dude, Cardinals swooped in. I agree, that kid could be a real find.

They need a WR and should trade W/ Tampa Bay for Michael Clayton.

Im gonna disagree with you, unless they would let him go for a 6th rounder, we need to keep our picks for once and build this team's depth.

Oh most definitely, I'm looking at giving at most a 5th rounder, no more. I worry about Gabriel having been cut twice by the Raiders and once by the Patriots.

I dont know how waivers works...is it like a lottery?
Did the skins even have a chance to pick him up or was it not their turn or something?

Yep, there are 31 other teams right now in addition to the Skins looking at who's available.

Waivers works like this. Remember the draft order from this year and how the Redskins were 6th? Well, it works the same way for Waivers. Oakland is first on the waiver wire, and when they say no, Detroit gets a chance, and etc. You should get the point. If the Cards had said no to Moses we would've been able to pick him up because we were next in the pecking order.

I hate hearing "Why should we look at another teams trash"

So much in this league has to do with the system, how you fit in, and things surrounding you. Look at Trotter. He played great for the Eagles, came here and sucked, went back and played very well for the Eagles again. Sometimes a player just needs a new home, a change of scenery, or a system they work better in. Mosses is worth the look, the contract will be reasonable.

Lets also remember, the raiders have arguably the best defense in the NFL. It's a hard squad to make.

The Raiders do have a great defense, they just get frequently overlooked due to the teams success.

I have to be pretty wary of any first day pick who got cut. Those guys get the chances and every opportunity to show what they can do. If that investment of time and money isn't enough to keep them on the roster alone then there has to be something seriously amiss. It's not like a 5th rounder who was going to need to impress to make the team. First day picks are supposed to have the talent to start eventually. If they got cut then someone doesn't think they do.
