Joe Don is 6'-4", not too short.
    I think sometimes releasing a player on the first cut might allow them to go "under the radar" and not get picked up. Also I think it is a little more difficult for teams to add players when they are trying to cut down to 75. He will have already cleared waivers by the next cut, I don't know but that might figure in the decisions?
    Thanks for that info I've been tracking and really have. Not had decent wifi access for that last week.
    Seems to me I heard something on the announcers group about him being in several camps and being cut.

    But then Most of those guys know less about the team than you all do.

    Foxy strikes again he was not very good here for two years. But Fox will fix him and make him cutlers backup. More power to him.

    That's just about all that happens around here sometimes ... during the full moon.

Not too short, but it's definitely on the lower range of NFL tight ends, which was the point. And the endgame here is that it means he doesn't have any quick-reference stats that would make him a particularly intriguing claim out of the ~450 players who've popped up on waivers the past couple days.
    1-02-2014 ... AP, Little All-American First Team, Troy Renk of the Denver Post had an article, Dixie St 2012 profile, Wikipedia. NFL combine profile has him at 6'-3" 268lb. Another Post article had him at 6'3" too.

    I've wondered if this was the intention as well.

    I've learnt from hard knocks that they keep the best 53. It doesn't matter how versatile Harris was or could of been, if he wasn't getting it done u can him

    Duncan's early release surprised me the most, too. I actually thought he'd be on the final roster, both because he's been a good special teamer and because I'm not super-thrilled with the idea of not having a backup should Casey get hurt. But as you said, it's unlikely he gets picked up elsewhere within the next few days (he's a little short for a tight end and not really a fullback, and I don't know of any other teams that use FB/TE/H-backs the way we are); the optimist in me is hoping that, believing him to be safe on the street for a few days, we cut him early to alleviate the number crunch with the intention of bringing him back to the PS.

    Pretty unlikely, I know, but if that's not what happens, we're going to need somebody on hand and versed in the offense to replace Casey in the event of serious injury.
    IIRC Duncan has been in several other teams and been cut by all.

    I was impressed with his play when he was on the field. For someone to short or ruff around the edges he played with heart.

    Perhaps we will see him on the PS. At least one can hope.

    Good chance he will, but you would think that if they wanted him on the practice squad they would have waited until final cuts to release him. I was definitely most surprised by his release.
