Outside Jennings, none of the guys cut were important parts of a Super Bowl contending roster. Most of the ones that were any good will get placed on the practice squad anyways.
Was just talking in general, every year a lot of people get upset over cuts. This year I would say some with Hawkins but yeah I'd agree main one was Jennings. Now if Daniels would have been cut a lot would have been pissed including me. It's not a Nate Davis, Tolzien crush. Think we really have something with him. He looked better than they ever did. Guy is making veteran throws, has the arm, can run and he's pump faking which is something Alex rarely did even in year 8 or whatever.
As for Jennings I get why we made the cut. We are in the middle of a youth movement and trying to save money for the 2015 FAs. Sucks we are going to have to lose some good players like Haralson, Jennings andpossibly Goodwin, Whitner and Brown after this year but if we have to do it to secure our future then that's what we have to do. Some people can sign the old guys who were our past and present... I'll go with Kap, Aldo, Culliver, Iupati, Hunter, Miller, etc. Tough way to save 545k though and if he makes one bad snap that costs us a game 545k will seem like chump change. That being said they liked him and thought he was the best LS in college. He's 23 so he will be able to grow with Lee and company and if all goes right he could be with us for 10+ years. He's signed through 2015 to start. If he doesn't work out who knows could always re-sign Jennings if he is out there. Might cost more but it's an option. Still think we will roll with Kevin even if he makes a mistake or 2.
