You are hired as the interim GM.

JR comes to you and says "Cut 6 current starters tomorrow".

Assume we can replace those starters with average starters in this league, who do you cut? What positions would be the biggest upgrade to just average?


My list...

Fua
Hangman
Gary Turnstyle Williams
Nak
Munnerlyn
Armanti

Not bad, but I think the Cap'n has earned his keep this year. My 6:

Fua
Nakamura
Hangartner
Williams
Armanti
Anderson

I like James Anderson and don't mind him staying, but for purposes of this exercise he would go. Jason Phillips played fairly well in relief against KC, and I can't remember the last time James made a play. Also, with Kuechly at the Mike, James has become an.expensive 2-down LB. For his contract, I would look for either bigger production or go cheaper.

I dont think armanti counts as a starter, unless we are talking KR.

One could also gamble on a healthy Davis , Keek, Beason trio next year.

I mean i guess if you include the 3rd receiver but i would say the 5 down lineman, olsen, smitty, lafell, cam, stew, and tolbert would be my view as the "starters"

Do we get to make the cuts without worrying about the cap ramifications?

Hard to argue with your 6. But, if Munnerlyn is back at slot. You keep him.

If we can ignore cap it is a nobrainer to cut Stu (to bad DWill is not listed as starter) and Godfrey. Not beacuse they are the worst players but because the cap is the largest issue going into next season.

If the objetive is to play as good as possible next game after the cuts I just ship every starter listed under special team, as happens it is 6 of them.

After watching how bad our run D has been ever since he was injured, I just can't see how anyone with a functioning brain would proposed to cut R Edwards.

Can you provide more color on why you would make this decision? I just don't see it, but an interested in your perspective.

the guy has a low cap hit for the job he does.

R Edwards is not a starter (players on IR rarely are...)

Beside, we got totally killed in the middle against KC without him. Are you trying to tank the season or what is your reasoning?

Norman and Amini aren't average.....they are rookies.

Cutting them is silly. Patrick Peterson a prime example....below average last year but to be expected. Not this year.

You cut garbage guys whose ceiling you know. Piggy, AE, etc

I just don't think he will be around come next season. If there's a new coach, I doubt he will wanna keep around an aging NT with health problems the past two seasons.

The real diamond in the rough is Dwan Edwards. We absolutely need to bring him back. There are two very talented nose tackles at the top of the draft this year that could easily pair with Dwan and be an even bigger upgrade.

I guess I kinda contradicted myself though, I have us cutting Gross for the purpose of drafting his replacement with our first pick. A lot of weird stuff could happen though, I'm anxious to see how we rebuild out trenches.
