    Who gets cut/released for 2012?

    I know this is not the most popular part of the business to think about....especially since we just won a SB, BUT it is what it is. Here goes my list:

    Paysinger
    Barden (HE HAS DONE NOTHING)
    Ware (NOT IMPRESSIVE AT ALL)
    Beckum (ALSO DONE NOTHING)
    Jacobs (even with restructure....doesn't he want to start?)
    Sintim (NOT FLASHED AT ALL)
    Cordle ( do we really need this guy? We have Baas to start, and Boothe can play C)

    I don't see us cutting Ware..... B.J. is about a 50/50 proposition that we retain him....other than that, I agree with your list.

    Barden may depend on what happens with Manningham. After that, he wouldn't be an immediate cut, but he'd certainly be fighting for a job.




    Beckum.....with the injury to Ballard (and him)....we'll see.

    Ok...why not Ware? What does he really bring to the table that BJ and AB don't? We can draft another RB with Ware's skillset, they might even be more exposive and have more dimensions to their game.....

    I'd say that (unfortunately), MM gets released too. We just can't afford him, and he can get #2 wideout money on most teams, even star dollars on some. JJ and Hixon will be battling for the #3 spot since we can't really afford any FA. Itll either be Nicks/Cruz outside with Hixon in the slot, or Nicks/Jernigan on the outside, slot Cruz. And, to be honest, I could see them switching up the formations there from play to play to keep things interesting.

    Jacobs will probably agree to restructure and back up Bradshaw. Yeah he'd like to start, but what team is going to take him as a starting RB? Kansas City?

    I also think Ross is going to be cut. He's done a lot for us, but we have a glut at corners right now and he's being paid so much money that it would almost be cheaper to franchise him than continue to pay what we have been paying. I'm looking at Webby and Prince as starting CB, and T2 as our nickel (switch T2 and Prince if the former heals to the level he used to be and Prince doesn't improve as he is expected to do with a full OTA)

    Released, not renewed, whatever. The point is we dont have cap money to afford these guys, FA or no, unless they renegotiate to something ridiculously low for their position and abilities.

    Why do you think they're cutting Paysinger? He's signed to pretty much bare minimum until 2014. Also don't discount the fact that these rookies had no offseason program. They signed him for a reason, I don't think they'll just give up after one year on him.

    Ware did pretty well actually. None of our backs rushed well so I have to call that on the Oline. Ware also had 27 receptions, not to mention a couple 2 point conversions. He'll be back.

    You listed a bunch of players that are under contract at or near the vet minimum. Making it extremely unlikely any of them will be released.

    It just seems to me that they have been grooming Ware to play a bigger role in the future.....
