    Best of luck to Nacho .... he probably get a lot of playing time with Meriweather having the "suspension bullseye" on his back

    Hope he gets it right still not a bad player ..He stoped playing fast ..I figured it was mess ups when he was going balls to the walls ...he started to think because were allowing big plays and about that time 8 games in JDR started laying the hammer down on several players ..I think this was why we went out a bought a S this off season .

    Redskins cut 2nd year player Phillip Thomas who was a 2nd round selection last year and spent last year on IR.

    BJ Webb Dallas' 3rd rounder last year was also cut.

    They don't give ya 4 years anymore in the NFL.

    I was scanning rosters today to see who made it. It's crazy how many undrafted players make it in today's era. Kinda neat really.

    I like that Marcus Roberson and Louchiez Purifoy both made their teams.

    7th rd pick Brandon Dixon didn't make the Jets but his brother who was in this years draft class made the Saints roster undrafted.

    I wonder how Brandon feels about that.

    I think I read last night that 26% of our current roster are undrafted players. Not sure if that is good or bad...
