Well I hope the game wasn't the only reason for his being cut. He must not have been showing too much during training camp either.

Particularly for the back-up free safety, the Skins want a guy who plays at a higher speed and attacks the ball.

"We give our safeties here a lot more freedom. In Oakland it's more restricted and confined," Jackson said. "Our system is -- you've got the green light to go make plays. His was, 'I have to back-peddle like this, I have to move like this I have to stay right here.'"

One wonders why he was ever brought here in the first place if the systems are so different.

Thankfully the 'experiment' didn't last as long as Archuleta's did.

Re: Schweigert released...

Apparently the Giants have signed him. Probably trying to get some inside intel before week one
