Someone is going to get themselves a good player. Spags and Ryan both didn't give Wilson a chance to succeed.

Lots of 3rd - 5th rounders cut from this years draft already.

One of our Beat writers, MIke Tripplet (who now writes for ESPN), was saying he was never able to settle into any of the places they put him (OLB, DE, and a little of ILB). Guy is a great athlete and I'm sure he will get his somewhere. I wish him the best. I really wanted him to succeed with us.

He was drafted in 2011.

Thought he looked pretty good rushing the passer (part time) in the past when I saw him. Interesting drop...

Does he still think he's going to be a hall of famer?

Not that he was playing bad, I think he just wasn't fitting the schemes. Guy is a great athlete, personally I would have liked to see him more at ILB in the 3-4.

he's a situational player that you can move around

Denver, bring this guy in.

They should also think about bringing in Isaac Redman.

Then, cut Hillman, and cut Paris Lenon, who is washed up at this point after a good career.

Umm right, I knew that. Just testing everyone. Embarassed Laughing

That's what happens when you don't actually read much of the OP or the headline.

Pretty shocking for two reasons.

1. I thought they'd at least keep Martez Wilson until the offseason.

2. Why are they promoting a QB to the active roster? Is there some kind of issue with Brees or McCown I don't know about?

Kind of a puzzling move unless Wilson did something to anger the coaches or FO or if there is something wrong with one of the Saints' Quarterbacks that would require a 3rd QB be on the active roster. I understand Wilson wasn't fitting the scheme, but I don't think they would cut him unless they had to, for some reason.
