Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

As has been said many times this off-season, it's all about stability. Our offensive and defensive coaching staff have been here forever in NFL terms. We brought back 21 of 22 starters, and alot of the depth as well. But right now there are 90ish players on the roster, and in 7 days that number will be 53.

Do you see any surprises coming out of Redskins Park in the next week?

I could see a long term deal with Trent, to free up the necessary cap room for the season.

I could see us going bare bones at receiver(5-6 only) to give us more flexibility on the defensive side.

Does anyone have a shocking surprise that they really think could happen?

Pat White will start at QB.

More seriously, I'd be stunned if we kept more than 5 WR's since we are keeping 4 TE's.

Wilson could be cut but I wouldnt think that would be a good move. LeRiebus, McRib or Grimace whatever you call him, maybe a surprise cut, but I think we may keep him.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

Well I don't think Wilson, LeRibeus, or even Stallworth getting cut would be all that big a surprise

Maybe Chris Thompson gets cut, with the hope that they can stash him on the practice squad. I suppose that may be a slight surprise

Pat White makes the team until we fully know that Griff and/or Cousins are ready? That's possible I suppose

I'll have to think about a big surprise

I think Wilson might be cut. Amerson's showing quite a bit of potential, and could start this year. Then there's Hall and Crawford. Wilson's only good for depth at this point.

Pat White's a guy who could be a surprise cut.

Maybe Aldrick Robinson gets cut? I think the coaches really like him, so it's doubtful.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

I guess the 'surprise' would be Josh Wilson. Has he even played during the preseason?

I would still be surprised if we cut LeRibeus. Even though he's played awful.

What about our other rookie running back? I hope he above all makes the team or practice squad given the reason why he left school early for the NFL.

I think he will be playing today, but that'll be his first time. HTTR24-7 keeps hinting that if Winfield is cut, we'd make room for him on our roster by cutting Wilson. Makes sense to me really.

I don't see any big surprises.

Meanwhile Tandler thinks otherwise:

Rich Tandler ‏@Rich_TandlerCSN 4h
No. Couldn't afford him then, can't afford him now. RT @rwj64: IF Seahawks cut Winfield do you think Shanahan might pick him up?
Expand
Jeremy Dean ‏@JDizzee 3h
@Rich_TandlerCSN @rwj64 if Wilson isn't in the future plans, why not cut him & bring in Winfield (if cut)? Upgrades slot for less money.
Expand
Rich Tandler ‏@Rich_TandlerCSN 2h
@JDizzee How does Winfield cost less money? Wilson took a pay cut. BTW, where is this talk of SEA cutting Winfield come from?
Expand
Jeremy Dean ‏@JDizzee 2h
@Rich_TandlerCSN I don't know cutting ramifications. Thought Wilson was slated for 2mill. Winfield's Seattle deal 1mill + play incentives.
Expand
Rich Tandler ‏@Rich_TandlerCSN 2h
@JDizzee Maybe AW would play for less than Wilson. Still not the way Shanahan usually does things and still doubt SEA cuts him w/$1mm gte.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

I'm really not concerned about our cuts..pretty sure there won't be any suprises. What i am hoping for is if someone decides to cut a decent zone blocking RT so we can try to upgrade our Oline by game 5 so RG3 doesn't get killed. Are there any chances of that happening?

I think he's more so saying he'd like to see that. And it could be good for both teams. But nothing really more than that

I think they're looking to sort of hide him this summer so he can get to the practice squad

That is helpful! I've been wondering why we've seen so much Keiland and so little Jawan.
