  1. They must really be looking at the waiver wire! I thought that we when they let Colbert go that Exum would stay, now both are gone. Both Elijah Lee, and David Mayo gone at linebacker? Thought perhaps Mayo was the special teamer they would keep. D-lineman Damontre Moore and Givens both had a heck of a camp, but I know they have huge numbers, so somebody had to go. Hope they can get DL Jeremiah Valoaga onto the practice squad, he looked like a baller (at least against those he was playing against).
    Did they keep any reserve O-Line? Garret was not a big loss in my book, but they also let go Toran and OT Sam Young (who I thought would be the swing tackle after Coleman went down). Must be the young guys Brunskill, and Skule. VERY INTERESTING
