Cuts will be tough this year

Looking at all the rosters, and knowing the number of cuts that have to be made by Thursday, I am so glad I don’t have to do it. This talented draft class, and the persistence of players coming back to try again, has already pushed a few veterans on to waivers. It will happen again.

It looks like Atlanta might have the toughest job in making final cuts, given the number of talented athletes on their roster. We will see.
