DJ Ware will catch on with a team needing a solid 3rd down back

Remember the pre draft hype that Greg Jones got ...

Surprised Thomas got cut, he's a pretty good run-stuffer from what I remember...

I'd like to see the Rams pick him up, our DT depth is questionable. Even more so with recent injuries...

Thomas is a NT or UT? We could really use a run stuffing NT

Shocked DJ Ware got cut, wasn't he take 2nd string reps over Wilson?

Ahmad Bradshaw and David Wilson are the number 1-2 guys.

Very early on. But it was apparant that he was the same player he'd been every year. A really bad one. He can't really catch the ball that well, can't really run the ball that well, but he can pass block on third down! Needless to say the 1-2 is Bradshaw and Wilson, and with Andre Brown showing he can catch the ball and running tough inside and Da'Rel Scott showing he has ability also, he was an easy cut.

He was average to below average. Started some games last year and missed assignments and was bad in coverage and was replaced with Herzlich. Okay in special teams, but we have a lot of linebackers here (Boley, Kiwanuka, Blackburn, Jacquian Williams, Rivers, Herzlich, Paysinger) so there was no room.

Sucks to hear about Jones, I like rooting for the undersized guys to make it

My fantasy team is looking good about now. Wilson is guaranteed to started at least three games this season (assuming he stays healthy himself). Confused
