None of these cuts really surprise me. I did, however, think that Slowey would make the team. I thought Kourtnei Brown was a longshot, but I didn't think he'd be cut so soon. Tyms, Giorgio Tavecchio, and Slowey will make a 53-man roster somewhere (maybe Deante' Purvis too).
I like the Slowey cut, not because wether me as a fan liked the cut or not. Just that they realized a bad pick when they saw it, and knew it wasn't worth the time right now to keep him on the squad. Very decisive.
