Has a weird feeling this might happen after he was shut down again early. Real shame.

Wow front 7 will see some draft picks for sure. LB and DT need addressing.

Been bitten twice now taking chances on oft injured draft picks, wonder if we'll shy away from taking those chances in the future.

Well DT is now a top need took one early last year will be interesting to see. I am a tad surprised while his numbers were never off the charts I felt he had impact on plenty of plays.

I now think we go RB DT LB WR CB

Since Bill Belichick took over in 2000, he has never before cut a first-round pick before his third NFL season until today.

He must be in trouble or something. This can't be just the injuries

I wonder if it was injury, performance related or something else.

Why not? Seems the obvious cause given his history.

It could be a culmination of several things.

Well this certainly says a lot. Injuries certainly had to have been a factor but it says a lot that he wasn't even given the offseason to turn it around. Doesn't matter how bad/injured you are if you're a first round pick, you're almost never released within two years of being drafted. Manziel is the only other example I can think of in recent history.

Regarding Easley, there is no one incident that led to release. Call it philosophical differences on following injury programs, etc

He was only in his 3rd year and they take a bigger cap hit by cutting him. They've kept guys around for longer who would get injured as often as he did
