    Here is a link to where you can find the latest people who didn't quite make the team. http://www.nfl.com/transactions

    What players got released that surprised you the most? For me it was Reggie McNeal, Omar Jacobs, Charles Rogers, Marcus Vick, Jabar Gaffney, Tyrone Calico, and Antowain Smith. Seth Wand being released also caught me a little off guard considering he was being slated as the starting left tackle by some people. It makes me laugh a little to see Gaffney cut after he talked all of that trash about the organization on his way out the door. I guess he wasn't as good as he thought he was.

    Jay Foreman got cut by the Saints. He's a player I'd consider bringing back.

    We already have our LBs filled by Greenwood, DeMeco, Shantee Orr, Wali Rainer, and Charlie Anderson. Wong is on PUP.

    No room for Foreman.

    It seemed like I kept hearing about Kubiak trying to shore up our linebacker spots. I figured a guy like Foreman who was one of the team leaders in tackles a few years ago would be a logical pick up.

    These names surprised me...Reggie is an athlete and someone should pick him up...Same with Vick, but you have the baggage..Jabar and Rogers, crazy...I'm sure someone will take a stab at them...

    wasn't gaffney ragging on the texans organization once he got to philly? I seem to remember him blaming his poor performances on carr and co.

    It's all very interesting.

    I, for one, am shocked that Reggie got cut. After all, I've heard guarantees for years that he was a better NFL player than Vince Young and the only thing holding him back was the other talent at Texas A&M. How can this be? The Texans are idiots if they don't pick this guy up off waivers.

    :D

    Calico has been a big bust for the Titans. He had his chance this training camp and did not produce. He has suffered from injuries and not being able to catch and hold on to the ball consistently.

    He is gut all the physicial characteristics to be a good player for some team if he can put it together mentally. A change of scenary will do him good.

    Davenport is a big surprise. I know the Packers are rebuilding but that guy has been a very consistent hb/fb for them.

    A player's track record in the NFL, unlike any other sport, means NOTHING... all that matters is what have you done for me lately. There aren't many "second chances" dished out, and if there are, they're almos assuredly given by another team (not the team the player is currently on).

    Absolutely. Percentages are way lowered of even getting the third chance. Basketball there are several leagues around the world and a couple lower ones at home. MLB has many minor league teams and there a few baseball leagues in other countries. After the NFL, its Canada or Arena then NOTHING. 8 spots on the practice squad and maybe over to NFL Europe

    Not suprised at Omar Jacbos being waived. The Steelers are good at getting guys who NO LONGER play QB :p I guess the Texans are okay with their WRs in Andre, Moulds and Kevin Walter for the year, and Jerome Mathis coming back or I'd say give Tyrone Calico a look or Peter Warrick until Mathis gets back. I'm surprised so many vets have been cut from the Texans, especially Robaire. Even though they want a big turnaround from last year I don't mind seeing the new young talent give em a fresh look this year.

    I really wished the Texans would sign Reggie Mcneal and see if they could develop him at tailback.

    I would love to see McNeal back.


    He'd be a cheap third quarterback who could also see time at WR.

    McNeal gets high and drunk way too much. Not an opinion either...if someone has search capability they can check out me telling y'all about C Bensons weed smoking way before he got busted.

    Really, those are the only quasi-celebrity connections I've ever had: UT football players during the Roy Williams, Simms era, and A&M football for the last 6 years up til now...I think there's no one left.

    Yeah, so back to Reggie...he's naturally gifted and has buttloads of talent, but the mental and dedication is lacking---that is my opinion.
