Don't know what's the point of signing that Kicker if you don't get rid of one of the other 2.

Even if he does stick with us for another week I highly doubt he'll get any kicking time.

I think this is good news. They won't cut Crosby until they are sure they have an upgrade. They are still looking. They may not be showing the sense of urgency that some fans would like - but they are still looking

If it is this Zach Ramirez he has got nice leg strength at least.

Ramirez/Brown was one of two PSU guys I brought up when Palmy asked about small school prospects. Cool

You know, I REALLY wanted Zach, and was upset we didn't sign him. After all the defense of Tavecchio's leg, this signing kinda says it all. Kinda surprised to see Pease get cut.

Pease looked terrible on the field. We've got 5 RB's who are head and shoulders above him, not sure how that could kinda surprise anyone.

Wonder if Pena will get PS'd or picked up anywhere else, I thought he looked pretty solid.

There's likely one player that we just cut that will make PS. Not a lot of teams are likely to ADD when they are supposed to be subtracting bodies.

If they had any intention of keeping someone on the practice squad, they probably would have made this cut and been kept until the 53.

That even though his start to pro football hasn't been great, he still has his head up (because of his God) and is going to continue to work? I don't see how you can read that ominously.

The twitter rumor mill is running wild, I don't think it's anything out of the ordinary, but when you've been underwhelming in camp you never know.

It's easy to forget how young these kids are and how much time we spend dissecting them. The ones who are all business from the get-go are the ones I don't trust.

I could post similar recent tweets from half the roster. Their friends just got cut, and they're preparing themselves for a possible cut, seeking solace where they can. This does not by any means we put all our eggs in Lacy's basket. We'll just have to wait for the reporters to do their job. Ted has cut 1 4th round pick in the past 8 years
