The Titans have started the process of trimming their roster down to 53 players. While not cuts are official yet, some of them have leaked out. The players that have been cut so far are Biren Ealy, Jamie Petrowski, Ingle Martin, John Vaughn, Cary Williams, Edward Williams, Tony Joiner, Omar Cuff, Marquice Cole, Tuff Harris, Jerrell Freeman, Isaac Snell, Jason Murphy, Enoka Lucas, and Fernando Velasco.
Ealy was a guy a lot of us rooted for last seaosn, but he didn't seem to improve any from when he first got here until now.
The fact that they cut Vaughn is a good sign that Rob Bironas is healthy enough to kick next weekend.
The Titans still have several moves that have to be made before the 3 p.m. deadline. Stay tuned..
[UPDATE]- DT Antonio Mookie Johnson has also been released. Good thing I had him down as a lock yesterday. Johnson was a 5th round pick last season, but missed the whole year after tearing his ACL in the preseason. He is a good candidate for the practice squad.
[UPDATE 2]- FB Casey Cramer, DE Sean Conover, DE Eric Taylor and FB Jeremy Cain have also been released.
[UPDATE 3]- Well, another of my locks, S Calvin Lowry, bites the dust.
[UPDATE 4]- WR Roydell Williams is the final cut to bring the roster to 53. This comes a year after he tied for the team lead in receptions. Jeff Fisher had said before last week that Roydell needed a big week to stay, but most of us here agreed that Fisher was just trying to light a fire under Roydell. Apparently he wasn't kidding.
