    It's not unusual for there to be further transactions after cuts are done.  If the team finds somebody they like on the waiver wire, they could pick them up.

    Voth confirms that Lee Ward went unclaimed on waivers.
    The only cut that's been picked up by anyone so far is Kevin Reddick.

    You are correct.
    This is what truly inept management looks like.

    As to the topic, yeah I'd be cool with us taking a look at Taylor.

    The most important thing about the last preseason game is the final chance it gives lower level guys to prove their worth and make the roster.

    Consider...
    In return for the #6 overall pick that the Falcons used to draft Julio Jones, the Browns received First Round Pick #27, Second Round Pick #59 and Fourth Round Pick #124 in 2011 plus First Round Pick #22 and Fourth Round Pick #120 in 2012.  Cleveland later traded up from #27 to #21 via the Chiefs (who actually wound up picking 26th because the Ravens let their time expire).
    With those picks, the Browns got...
    - DT Phil Taylor (2011, #21)
    - WR Greg Little (2011, #59)
    - FB Owen Marecic (2011, #124)
    - QB Brandon Weeden (2012, #22)
    - LB James-Michael Johnson (2012, #120)
    What happened to those picks?
    Johnson was waived by the Browns prior to the 2013 season and picked up by Kansas City, where he still plays.
    Weeden wound up benched in 2013 and released in 2014.  He's currently backing up Tony Romo in Dallas.
    Marecic was also cut prior to the 2013 season.  The 49ers picked him up but he never played for them and was released again just a few months later.  He decided to retire from football and go to med school.
    Little started out decent but declined and wound up released in 2014.  He spent time with the Raiders and Bengals, where he still is at the moment despite having previously been released.
    And Taylor was dropped today.
     
    The life of a Browns fan must be really tough.

    I've been known to ponder every once in a while.

    Yes, White could potentially wind up on injured reserve. Thought I saw where someone had already picked up Reddick though.

    Remember that big play in last year's playoffs?
    Specifically, the one where Ted Ginn - a member of the Arizona Cardinals at the time - fumbled on a punt return...
    Cornerback Melvin White made the hit that forced the fumble.
    Linebacker Kevin Reddick recovered the football for the Panthers.
    Anyone who watched the game would probably agree that turnover went a long way toward sealing the victory.
     
    Earlier today, the Panthers waived both Reddick and White.
    Meanwhile, Ginn - who came back to the Panthers during the offseason - is considered a lock to make this year's final roster.
     
    Football is a funny thing.

    PFT reports teams are "lining up" for a chance to talk to Phil Taylor.
    No word on whether we're one of them, but I'd say given that both our starting defensive tackles have had some injury issues recently, it's definitely possible.

    I'd add that I question whether RG3's ego would allow him to accept a backup role.

    He'd get broken in half the first time he went across the middle.
