From a gent that had to run through that process, interesting insight.

I wonder if certain Packer fans would take pleasure in cutting say a Ahmad Carroll? :lol:

There are very few phone calls during our existence that are truly life-altering. For no fewer than 1,000 players on the cut line, one of those calls could be coming on Saturday, when NFL teams have to cut their rosters to 53 players. Take it from a guy who's been there, it is utterly amazing how disappointing a two-minute conversation can be.

Once you get the call and realize your fate is sealed, the rest of the process is just a formality. There is typically a check-out procedure, during which you hand in your equipment and playbook and sign-off on your health status with the trainers. The only thing left after that is the conversation.

There is a certain indignity to sitting in a room with a dozen other guys, waiting to speak with the head coach. It feels as if you are on death row, just biding your time before meeting the executioner.

When I got cut, it sucked. I knew it was going to happen, but that didn't make it feel any better.

I hope Ahmad Carroll meets the executioner. Other than that, this was a good read.
