    Just curious as to when we are required to make a large number of cuts.
    I figured we would have to make a good amount by next weeks game but I haven't heard anything.
    Also who do you think will stick around on defense and which WR's do you think will get cut? Who else besides Darius Reynaud do you think has shown enough to make the final roster?

    Cut Michael Preston. Hate to say that because I like his size and he played very good in Training Camp. I can't find him in any of the games. I hope we can sneak DJ Woods onto the PS.

    It should be pretty clear what WRs we're keeping... Britt, Washington, Wright, Williams, Hawkins, Mariani.

    As for RBs I think Ringer is going to get cut.

    Also, Shaun Smith has got to go... then there are some other scrub backup o-linemen and d-linemen that will get cut. McRath is getting the axe too.

    Yeah I hope we get rid of McRath, also.

    I don't think we cut Javon though. He actually played quite well in the CJ slump last year. The RB issue may end up being the toughest decision.

    I think either Harper or Ringer gets cut, maybe they try to squeeze one of them to the practice squad. I forgot about Shaun Smith lol I haven't heard his name much and I don't think he has done anything, to be honest I didn't even know if he played last night, so I think he gets cut. Does SenDerrick Marks make the team? He looked good last night I hope he can keep playing well!

    Only Harper is eligible to go to the PS.. Javon is no longer eligible for that.

    The first cut from 90 to 80 players is August 28. That should be easy.

    They then go to 53 on September 2. I suspect the Titans will claim a couple of players off waivers before the practice squad is set.
