    Never heard of either of these guys and a quick look at their numbers, or lack of, makes me think they are below average backups. Don't really like this decision one bit.

    *Prepares for the angry mop of Blount fans*
    seriously though, that really is surprising, i wonder if they think he can make it through waivers to PS or something

    No Thornton and Mcrath for four weeks is what did this. Blount isn't a good special teams player and Keglar was just an all around disappointment.

    I'm thinking one of those safeties are gone for another running back.

    This is interesting... Only 2 running backs could indicate an outside signing.

    If we cut Blount it's for a proven guy or a vet of some measure.

    Possibilities?:

    Marion Barber (Allegedly on block)
    Derrick Ward
    Willie Parker
    Julius Jones
    Someone unknown right now via trade

    I think Derrick Ward went to Houston.

    Where'd you hear that MB is on the block? I heard Dallas wasn't very happy with him a while back but I think he'd be a great addition to the RB corps. Very few people in the league work harder for their yards (Steven Jackson is the only one that comes to mind).

    Willie Parker is pretty much done and washed up, same with Julius Jones although I'd prefer the latter if I had to pick.

    Why cut Blount? There is a scrub or 2 that could have been cut to make room for "The Who's" we just signed.
