Wow, we're thin at DT.

Herron is the biggest surprise IMO.

So is the fact that we kept 7 LBs.

Trade anyone?

I expect another DT to be signed before our season opener.

I'm only a mild bit surprised we didn't keep one of Morency or Herron. I thought we'd keep four backs plus a fullback.

I think its kind of stupid to get rid of 3 DT. Also I don't get why we got rid of Herron. I think we really have to worry about those two positions because we don't have a lot of depth if something happens to picket, grant, or jolly.

I am just a bit surprised that both were cut. I thought Morency might be traded for a 7th. But he is good at protecting the QB and Herron was the 3rd down back.
Interesting.
