    It would be nice if these articles mentioned if the players have fewer than 4-years experience and are therefore subject to being claimed, or if they are free agents.

    Breaking: Joe Neverhurdofhim has been cut and it looks like Jamaal Chanceinhell is going to be released also. Sad day folks.

  11. swive says: Sep 3, 2011 6:57 PM

    Jeez, is it me or is this really, really, really far behind as far as news goes? The Lions (for one example) have released their entire cut list but all there is here is a 1-in-the-afternoon partial update.

    Larry Johnson cut? I can’t believe it! (shaking head)
