Again I get that argument but I would rather keep the player with more upside and dump Skuta.

Granted Cam isn't all world but I think he becomes better than Skuta.
I don't know if you saw all the preseason games, but over the course of the games and what was coming out of camp Skuta showed more than Cam did, plus he can play both inside and outside as well as ST. You can't say Cam was a good up and coming player based on one preseason game. Even the beat writters said he was on the bubble and that one game should have secured him a spot and it did. Skuta was never on the bubble. He may well become better than Skuta as an outside LB, but right now the niners need some who can backup the starters, play special teams. Cam can't play in the middle. Cam would never see the field anyway. Corey would see it before him, thus he would not be suited up. Its about versatility if you are not a starter or starter 1a. Its a numbers game.
I said it last year when people were oozing about Tolz over Kaep, all because he looked good in pre against scrubs.

Productive? He didn't produce yet unless you count one meaningless pre game that was the last one where teams play the 3rd and 4th stringers to see who stays and goes. We have Corey who has tons more potential and will see the field before Cam who won't even suit up. Niners weren't going to keep him. Every year teams have one or two that make the team temp., until a better player they been eyeing comes along. Right now - Skuta is the better player to have cause of his versatility and the fact that he had a better pre and training camp.
