Kerry Taylor was claimed by the Patriots. I liked him and he had a good camp. Will keep an eye on him under Belicheck.



Another one of our cut guys Ernest Owusu got claimed by the Browns.

As expected, Jackson agreed to restructure his contract as part of the deal:

Which is why there was no chance of him coming back to Minnesota.

QB Tyler Thigpen overcame a rough start to engineer three scoring drives for the Bills before his final pass was intercepted.

(disclaimer, I had this opinion before he was cut), guys like Arceneaux are a dime a dozen. Good football players, but lack the talent to play in the NFL. I'll eat my hat if Arceneaux (or Burton for that matter) ever make an impact in the NFL. They seem like guys destined to bounce around the league, camp bodies, practice squad guys, maybe 5th reciever in a few games.

Regardless, I wish Manny all the luck in the world in DC.

Tyler Thigpen, the Bills' backup quarterback who surprisingly survived last week’s roster cuts and made Buffalo’s 53-man roster, agreed to a $1 million pay cut to stay with the Bills, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

#Ravens release former #Vikings OT Bryant McKinnie, per @WNST.


No shock here, McKinnie is the definition of an uninterested and unmotivated professional.

is McKinnie still in debt too?

jeez, how many tens of millions did he make before the age of 30? with little to show for it.

Bryant McKinnie is due a $3.2 million base salary, but Ravens would ideally like to cut his pay.

The Ravens are attempting to restructure tackle Bryant McKinnie's contract, per a league source, situation could lead to his release.

McKinnie refused a pay cut so of course that led to his release per a text from Aaron Wilson to 105.7 the fan with Vinny Cerrato and Rob Long.

McKinnie got a top 10 pick contract and also signed a long term extension with MN. He got two nice contracts, not sure how he could have squandered both.

I wonder if the Ravens were foolish to release McKinnie without a backup plan in place? I know they have Jah Reid, but he is more of a RT. Michael Oher has shown he cant play LT very effectively.
