And Bryant was 88% last year. Don’t care what he was 10+ years ago before he got cut from TB. We aren’t Italian Ices first team to cut him so he can resurrect his career elsewhere. Different situations.

No, not different situations. Same situation. Matt Bryant was considered a "bum" when the Falcons signed him. HeIl, he only made 7/10 kicks in 2009 after the Falcons signed him and everyone said the Falcons had a major kicker problem. But whatever. Revisionist history at it's finest.

With stocker and ollison on the roster, I see no real need for ortiz. Would rather have kept tbj or Larkin'. Miles was a tough cut too.

Overall, it looks like we cut just about everyone expected, save for maybe Miles. He's probably the only one we're really holding our breath about over the next 24 hours.

I don"t know if we are done..

We aren't done by default (cut or keep shede after his suspension), but it wouldn't surprise to see us make 1-2 moves at the bottom of the roster. Can't think Ortiz feels completely safe.

Ortiz is my surprise, he must have the    F O favor. Man I hope we can keep Brooks, I really like him put him behind the1st team OL and zoom.

You know with all  the injuries in the NFL I'm surprised the union hasn't made them go up to a 55 man roster with everybody on Sunday eligible to play

I’m most surprised about Larkin not making the 53, to be honest. 

Why? Because of dl depth?   Never mind, I misread your statement.

Confused as to why we cut TBJ but kept Hill. Don’t see what he brings to the table as a 4th/5th RB. 

Coaches see what guys do in practice as well as in games.  You also may not be as good at evaluating RBs and positional needs as they are.  We are all susceptible to Dunning-Kruger effect.

He would've been a victim of depth. I've liked what i've seen out of him in general. Definitely turned in a good pre season. It will be interesting to see his snap count as the season progresses for sure.

Well they did try both Ollie and Stocker at FB in preseason, but seemed to like Ortiz more.

Yeah, okay.

Difference being Bryant kicked for 4 seasons in TB, and he had the longest FG in NFL history before signing here. Was not a “WTF is a Tevecchio” type of signing.

meanwhile Tevecchio has already been cut by: 49ers, Lions, Packers, Raiders, Falcons with limited in game experience.

like I said IMO different scenarios for these two kickers, and I have no faith that Ice will suddenly have a great kicking career.

TBJ struggled when running against tougher competition in preseason. Hes got a lot of upside. Hopefully a year on the PS will be huge.

Hopefully he makes it without getting claimed.

Hill is so useless we should have cut him instead of TBJ

TBJ will be on ps no doubt, and if a RB goes down he'll be on our 53

I like it more when he wrecks tacklers.

Ortiz looked pretty good this summer.

would be amazed to see TBJ, Larkin, Miles and Etling not hit the PS. The biggest worry is the claim. Usually that happens pretty quickly, will be an interesting few days. You could see all 4 making the 53 in some form down the line. All have upside.
