NFL GMs Favorite Phrase When Players Seek More Money, “B$%tch, Don’t Make Me Cut You!”
The Rams, Jets and Bears Released Several High-Profile Veterans before the NFL Draft
It’s Not You, It’s Me.
The NFL is a shrewd and cutthroat business. As the rookie combine come to a close in Indianapolis, teams will begin to cut their high paid and underperforming veterans. DE Chris Long, LB James Laurinaitis, and TE Jared Cook were cut by the St. Louis (soon to be the LA) Rams, last week. As seen on ESPN.com head coach Jeff Fisher said,
“This is the time of year when all NFL teams are faced with difficult decisions regarding their veteran players,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement. “Chris and James are the epitome of what it means to be a pro in this league and it’s been an honor to coach them both.”
The Rams are expected to receive $24 million in salary cap space relief with the moves. CB Antonio Cromartie from the Jets and TE Martellus Bennett from the Bears were two of the other player whose cuts caught our eyes. Look, the head writer of First and Ten Sports is an unabashed New York Giants fan, I would have serious interest in all three of the Rams players. Obviously the G-Men need defensive upgrades, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a reliable TE for the offense’s quicker hitting pass game?
Local Impact for G-Men?
The head writer of First and Ten Sports is an unabashed New York Giants fan. When he saw the Rams players who became available, his eyes popped out of his skull. The G-Men need to upgrade their defense, but Eli Manning could use a reliable TE for the team’s passing game.
If you were GM Jerry Reese, whom would you sign?
