Why? Aren't we in need of linebackers?

Asking the wrong person. I don't think he is healthy enough to contribute effectively, hence the cut. This opens up Powell from what I guess. Who knows...? Still have Haralson and Powell on that side.

Not surprising. He's not in my projected 53. I know lots of other 53 predictions left him out as well...

Our base package contains exactly zero 3-4 OLBs. I like this move because it means Ryan is sticking with what works, a 4-2-5 nickel base, and not trying to make this team a true 3-4 like everyone expected him to.

We can save 1.5 million on a guy who won't see many snaps in our scheme, assuming he can even get healthy enough to play. The move makes perfect sense. We can use Galette and Haralson when we use a true 3-4 look (which is rarely) with Powell and Johnson subbing in from time to time when we really need it. But for the most part, Galette is our DE and we don't use OLBs often, Victor was a luxury we decided we don't need.

Not surprised, guy just can't stay healthy since he's been here. A shame too, he could've been great starting here with Rob.
