Really was surprised by the Dan Arnold cut, and Banjo. Curious who makes it to the full 53 in the secondary. Also, I thought I read Granderson was activated from the nonreport list and maybe on the 53. Need to see what else I can find on that. Weird to have him on the 53.

I'm surprised that we let go two very good looking WR in Butler and Humphrey. I hope we can stash them or one on the practice squad. Humphrey could switch to TE but Butler is a nightmare on seam routes but he does need work on his game to be more consistent in gaining seperatation and catch the ball.

Man, we are WEAK at OL depth...

At tackle .. but Peat is a backup tackle also.... versatility is the key, all the guards can play center.... I’m sure they have a plan if the injury bug hits

Saints just traded Biegel to the Dolphins for Kiko Alonso.

 

I liked Biegel, but with the Ellis kid playing so well I can understand wanting to upgrade at backup LB. I feel Ellis can start in a pinch but would prefer Alonso. I am excited to see the development of Ellis though. Curious to see Ellis on ST's. I guess Robertson will be ready week 1 or you don't make this trade. Because Alonso will not be ready week1.

Kiko put up some good numbers last year so I like this trade, especially since SP didn't get cute and trade away any picks. Man, the Dolphins are a dumpster fire as they trade away players... I heard Kiko has a rep for playing dirty? Is that true?
