No offense but Damon Harrison is an unheralded undrafted rookie FA. Even if he did outplay him in the preseason, thats not a great reason to cut a proven contributor.

How did Chaz Schillens do this preseason vs. White, Eron Riley, et al? Who's still on the roster?

And not for nothing, but there was room for both without this practice squadder claimed from Miami.

Anyway, luckily, Allen and White both made it to the Practice Squad, which is officially:

DB Fletcher, TE Smith, OLB Sapp, T Cornick, LB/S Dowtin, WR Pollard, S Allen, WR White



In a bit of a shocker, Bryant McKinnie has apparently been released this AM after a contract dispute. There should be a call made ASAP.

He hasn't been released just yet; the writer who reported it received another text from him stating, "not officially over yet just got a call."

If he is released, yeah, they should be on that. I think the Cardinals will sign him though.

Yeah I saw that, but then someone else reported (Schefter?) that barring something unforeseen, it would be official this afternoon.

However, now we have this:

Jason La Canfora @JasonLaCanfora 2m
Bryant McKinnie's agent, Michael George, told me he just agreed to a restructured deal for McKinnie to remain a Raven

So scratch that, I guess.




In a "you gotta be kidding me" move, Pats are working out Kellen Winslow today.

BREAKING: TJ Conley cut. To which we all say: "Thank God."

Couple of interesting names out there (no, not Spencer Lanning): Mat McBriar, Jeremy Kapinos.


How odd though that they didn't even really have a camp body in to push him, and now cut him with a few days before game one - whereas Nick Folk had a "competitor" signed almost immediately in the offseason, and remains.

Coz says its McBriar. I called for that way back in the spring:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=36560&p=1068465&hilit=mcbriar#p1068465

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=36560&p=1069663&hilit=mcbriar#p1069663

Terrible 2011, but was the biggest leg in the league in 2010.


EDIT: Or not.

Source said the Jets have NOT signed McBriar. So still digging on who new punter is. #nyj

McBriar had a cyst in his plant foot last season and it seemed to begin bothering him in Week 8 if you follow Rotoworld's timeline. For whatever it's worth:

Weeks 1-7: 41.5 net yards average, 49.7 yards average
Weeks 8 and on: 33.8 net yards average, 40.2 yards average

2012 preseason: 41.2 net yards average, 45.5 yards average

Yeah he was an All-Pro in 2009 and 2010. Excellent punter til last year. Was a victim of his own success a bit with cost, and the Eagles have a good young and cheaper leg in Henry. Jets are apparently still 8M under the cap or so, plus I would assume the price on McBriar comes in around what Conley costs at this point since he has some guaranteed money doled out to him from the Eagles upon his release.

However, as pointed out above, Coz now says he has confirmed they have NOT signed McBriar. That may mean its just not official yet - but you would think they would have signed someone as a precursor to the Conley cut. We'll see.

What's Ben Graham up to these days?

You can question a lot of Rex and company's decisions...but talent evaluation on the defensive line is not one of them....

And thank god Conley is gone, dude was horrible

Ugh Jets.

Cimini says Nick Harris or Jason Baker.

Both tied for 30th in Gross Avg with TJ Conley last year at 42.7 yds; both came in BEHIND Conley in Net Avg. Baker was dead last in Net short of Rich McGee and Robert Malone, who had 8 and 5 punts last year each, respectively.

Neither rated particularly well in directional kicking, with Baker at 25th in Inside 20 punts and Harris at 29th.

Now some of these stats are dependent upon location, coverage teams, etc. But neither is particularly appealing it would seem. Baker is an 11 year veteran who the Panthers cut after last season. Funny enough, Harris was in camp as Baker's replacement this year, but was cut for drafted punter Brad Nortman.

Jets just cut the DL they claimed off waivers and had to waive Dixon for.

Aaaaand Dixon is back, replacing the guy who's name I don't need to learn to spell, closing the curious loop that Slug first alluded to.
