Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

Link: Redskins' 53-Man Roster, Version 1.0

Quote:
When the Redskins open training camp July 29, fans who attend the practices better bring a roster. Familiar names are gone, either to other teams or into an unofficial retirement. Nearly 40 players have been acquired since Mike Shanahan was hired in early January.


The makeup of the roster will have a different look, and not just because there are so many new players. Shifting to the 3-4 defense means fewer defensive linemen and more linebackers.


But it's never too early to guess the 53-man roster.
In this first version, I have 23 players who weren’t on the team for last year’s opener – turnover caused by going 4-12, having an almost entirely new coaching staff and the end of the salary cap era. The adopted model is 25 players apiece on offense and defense and three specialists.






RECEIVERS (6)
Santana Moss, Devin Thomas, Joey Galloway, Bobby Wade, Mike Furrey and Terrence Austin.

Analysis: What’s the fun without throwing a couple curveballs, which is why Malcolm Kelly isn’t included. He doesn’t play special teams – that’s why Wade, Furrey and Austin all make the team. Guessing this position is a crapshoot – Thomas is the No. 2 receiver behind Moss by default, and Galloway needs to show he can make it through camp. On his last Denver team, Mike Shanahan carried only five receivers (four active on Sundays), but Austin makes it as the sixth player if he has a good camp returning kicks.
I'd really hate to lose Kelly

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

This is one hypothetical guy predicting the final roster.

I highly doubt that one of either DT or MK get cut in the preseason.

I suspect the final WR roster to look like SM, DT, MK, Joey Galloway, Austin, and Furrey.

Of course there is always a distinct possibility that the WR roster may change before the start of the season.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

I mean it makes somewhat sense though which got me thinking. I honestly would hope we wouldn't cut him, I do believe Shanahan said he was going to enjoy having Thomas and Kelly for the endzone plays.

Guess we'll find out.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

I think these 2 guys will step up this year and make some big plays for us.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

Kelly is going to make the team but he has to step up his game big time to survive after this coming season. I wouldn't bet on Kelly.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

I thought I remember hearing about how Kelly was excited after talking schemes with Shanahan and how he was going to utilize him? Regardless, Kelly obviously needs to earn his spot so anything is possible.

Ha Ha Ha, You just made a ton of enemies from all the fans who "know" there is no way Kelly will get cut from the roster.

Unless of course your talking about him getting a paper cut opening his mail.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

Doubt we'd throw in the towel on him yet. I still think there is some good in MK, hopefully he breaks it open this year. He's been injury riddled for most of his career...That said, this is a monster year for him, if he fails to show up again this year, or god forbid he gets injured again, I say we have to make a move and cut him or try to deal him...not sure for what, but that's a likely scenario.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

Kelly reminds me of a slower version of Roy Williams and that's not real good.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

I hope they watched tape of Kelly vs. SanDiego, he had a great game. This kid has high potential.

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

As we all know anything is possible. And all this competition is great. May the best 5 or 6 wide outs make the team!

I also am more concerned about our WR corp. than probably any position.

I would have to think though that unless another setback for Kelly, he makes the 53....

Re: Malcolm Kelly possible cut?

If you read the full article he also states that Willie Parker will not be on the team via trade to a team who's running back is injured in training camp.

Yes it is a possibility that MK is cut during the preseason, but I find it unlikely.

About as likely as a team trading for Willie Parker in the preseason. Of course, it is very possible Willie Parker does not make it on the final roster because he is cut.

if you look at just the stats yeah..

5 catches for 109 yards.. one of those catches was like... 84 yards or something? leaving the rest 4 for 25ish..

he showed several nice catches throughout the year but I don't think that he had a dominant game per se
