Last 7 In

8) CB Cassius Vaughn- he played fairly well throughout the preseason, and his game 4 was phenomenal. He was all over the place.

7)  RB/KR Terrence Magee- Looked solid as a backup RB, and Allen has been disappointing so far. Can help in coverage on special teams and return kicks too.

6)  DL Kapron Lewis-Moore- He played well enough to fend off Bilukidi and Tyson, and has more years of control.

5) ILB Arthur Brown- His special team performance has been impressive, and he has shown some flashes on defense. Neither Orr or McClellan has outplayed him, so I see him making the roster.

4) WR Jeremy Butler- has performed well in camps 2 years in a row, and had some moments in preseason games this year. His special teams contributions are the clincher.

3) ILB Zachary Orr- key special teamer and backup ILB showed flashes, essentially had to beat out either Brown or McClellan. Has several cheap years of control, so that plus his performance make him the odd man out at ILB.

2) OLB Brennan Beyer- OLB is weaker with Steven Means out for the year, and Beyer has looked good. Suggs and Dumervil will be more effective with more rest, plus Upshaw and Za'Darius will play some with their hands in the dirt. So the depth is needed.

1) S Bryden Trawick- the last spot for me was between Trawick and McClellan as key special teamers, and Tyson and Bilukidi as the 7th defensive lineman.

Last 6 Out

1) DL Christo Bilukidi

2) ILB/OLB Albert McClellan

3) DB Asa Jackson

4) WR Daniel Brown

5) DL  DeAngelo Tyson

6) DB Quinton Pointer

Rest of the Cuts:

Fitzgerald Touissaint, Bryn Renner, Zach Thompson, Nick Perry, Micajah Reynolds, Tom Nelson,. Konrad Reuland, Nick Easton, Jah Reid

IR: Tray Walker, Robert Myers, Brent Urban
