    I haven't watched much of the preseason but both have to be considered a surprise, no?

      Very disappointing. We could have drafted Mack Wilson with that pick we trade for Watson. Wilson, from what I have heard is killing it for the Browns.

        Surprised they cut Watson. I thought he was playing as expected. Looks like maybe they like what they see in DeShawn Williams as a backup at NT? Watson cut saves 1.5M in cap Kerr would be ~1.4M savings.

          Watson looked good at times but not great, I think they thought he was not fast enough to play the edge anymore. Plus they are looking for areas where they can save money.

          Mike Purcel has greatly impressed at the nose tackle position and so they want to keep him along with Malik Reed and Justin Hollins and I hope Justin Hollins gets to play more edge than being forced to play inside linebacker.

              Mike Purcell, too.

                Still can't believe he was there in the 5th round.

                  I think Watson is more of a surprise because he’s been a career special teams guy and we’ve looked pretty bad covering kicks

                    Depending on how well Elijah Wilkinson play in this final preseason game Thursday night, we just may see Ron Leary get the ax as well.

                    Barclays just stinks so it won’t be him but Wilkenson will be the RG for the majority of the season.

                    Yeah cutting Leary, they’ll take a loss but I think they’ll save more money against the cap this season because nobody sees Leary playing more than six or seven games this year with the injury history.

                    Cut Leary and Heuerman perhaps and maybe there could be a way to trade for Trent Williams if Bolles continues to fail. Just saying!

                      It was very cool them making the move now so these guys have more time to catch on elsewhere

                        Cutting Leary and Heuerman is only a savings of ~3.3 after dead money, still not enough to get Trent. And one of Trent's problems is more money.

                            Yes, he is actually more built to play NT than Williams but they do have him as a DE on the "depth chart"; maybe they will move him to backup NT? Purcell did play decent on Saturday.

                              Factor in the money saved from
                              Kerr and Watson as well but I know they weren’t making a ton but in today’s NFL you can tweak the cap quote a bit.

                              But I think Denver will soon be trading for one of San Francisco’s back up quarterbacks.
                              I heard a rumor not too long ago but there is no link since it was all word-of-mouth.

                              Anyway it could be that Money is being accumulated for that plus better special teams players.
