    Ballard has been very slow to recover from his blown-out knee.

    Looking at today's cuts so far on Weenieworld, there are very few notable White names, which is a good sign though there are a lot of players yet to be cut.

    Anthony Armstrong getting cut for Dallas is good news for either Coale or Beasley, and so far Eagles have cut two black WR's, so Maehl is still standing as of now.

    Ebert and Martin were not unexpected. Brandon Kaufman also cut by Bills, but does this mean that Chris Hogan makes the Bills?

    The Bills have already cut down to 53 and Hogan was not on the list, which means he made the final cut. This is good news. Buffalo has not had a white receiver on a regular season roster since Steve Tasker and that was long ago. Hopefully Hogan gets a lot of reps.

    Also, the Jags cut quoutaback afleet Matt Scott(DWF favorite) out of Arizona in favor of newly picked up Ricky Stanzi from KC. The Qb's for Jax are Gabbert, Henne and Stanzi. Stanzi has a real nice shot of grabbing that backup job.

    Maybe Wilikpedia has this wrong but Hardin was put on the IR. If you are injured you can only be cut if the team doesn't have any interest in you and states that to the player after he has been assessed by the team doctor and then they buy out the players contract(if the player agrees to this).

    Well it looks like Tebow's time is up in the NFL. I was hoping he would of been able to carve out a role with the Patriots but I was expecting this - just disappointed how he became a victim of the jew-sports media and the hordes of DWFs. I will reference Tebow when arguing against DWFs who want Pryor so start in Oakland.

    Thanks Tim - you were fun to watch in the NFL - you were written off before you even got into the league and led your team to the playoffs even though the Broncos were doing their best to sabotage you. You survived a joke of a year with the Jets and maintained your integrity and character. You dominated the coal black SEC and are the best player in CFB history IMO.

    Cuts rolling in. Disappointed to see Shaw and Solomon both get cut by Titans. Packers cut Vince Young, which is consolation for the Tebow cut by the Pats.

    Yes, Tebow's NFL career is over. The mantra will be, "If Belichick couldn't get anything out of him/make him into a QB, no one can." It's an absolute shame and a real disgrace.

    The orchestrated campaign against this kind, moralistic young man will be one of the ugliest examples those in the future study, when exploring how our civilization collapsed.

    Tebow is a good guy, and as such he is anathema to modern day Americans who comprise our Idiocracy. I know he "can play," and wish him all the best.

    I'm sure he'll have a long succesful career ahead of him as a mega church pastor. He'll raise millions for Israel, all the while never knowing who's responsible for ending his career.

    Can anyone imagine the type of career he would have had if he were used like Gremlin or Scam. I think he would have put up crazy numbers. 1k rushing with at least 15 touchdowns and 4k passing with 30 touchdowns. He would have been so fun and exciting to watch. He'd be the most popular player in all of professional sports by far. Every kid would want to be like him.

    Tyler Sash was cut - don't know why - he was a pretty good player. I guess with the addition of Cooper Taylor the Giants were already at their 1 white safety quota.

    And this post basically captures the whole Tebow in the NFL sticking point for the mass media, advertisers and NFL corporation.
    It doesn't fit 'the agenda' and mission statement to have legions of young Whites want to be like the winner, clean living, strong and successful Tim Tebow.

    Why would they want this when it would contradict 100% of the advertising and mass media/Hollywood regime's actions in the last 25 years?
    hmm..something to think ponder, huh?

    No, the perfect counter point is the adoration and pervasive positive attention and support of say College success Griffin.
    Not anywhere near as successful as Tebow with Florida, yet totally supported by the NFL, mass media, advertisers and pop culture public.

    There is nothing to 'read into' and no conspiracy. It is totally out in the open and obvious.

    The Tebow case study is absolutely amazing and impressive in its chutzpah and how this has been handled comparably to say Griffin is quite astounding.
    When Tebow was driven out of Denver, the Jets are a basket case franchise and a circus act.
    It was basically the worst place for him.
    I wonder if J-ville will pick him up...could he not be a very effective 'slash' style Wildcat style option there? Would he not sell tickets, merchandise, bring people out and media attention for a team which frankly needs all the help it can get?
    Didn't Tebow grow up in the vicinity of Jacksonville?

    It's too bad the many DWFs don't seem to have the ability to put the pieces of the obvious puzzle together.

    Tyler got a concussion in the 2nd half of the last preseason game.

    Not sure how long he will be dinged up, yet I hope he gets picked up sometime this year.
    Many of these last minute cuts need to just hang in there, stay in shape and have their agents or themselves work the phones and just stay on the radar for specific teams with obvious specific needs.
    The season is a battle of attrtion in many respects and players will get injured. Just got to stay on the short list of capable unemployed players and hope to get brought in and stay healthy.

    can we create a thread for White players who get picked up and signed by other teams after the usual end of preseason purge?

    thanks!

    Dan Gronkowski (TE) was cut from the Browns, and his brother Chris (FB) was cut by the Chargers.

    Zach Miller was cut by the Bucs.

    Dan Depalma (WR) was cut by the Chargers. He had a good preseason. I guess they would rather pay Robert Meachum $8 million/year to ride the bench. (Luke Tasker, was cut by them earlier in the week)

    Cory Lynch (S) was cut by the Titans

    Tim Toone (WR saints) was cut. This should increase Andy Tanners chances in New Orleans.

    Bengals release OT Roland and linebacker Schaffer (only one white man on defense at a time in Cincy), but cut Herron, so looks good for Burkhead.

    You called it bigunreal. The dwf media has already started with the "if he can't make it with the OC who drafted him then he won't make it anywhere" statements. It's preposterous!

    Mariani and Matt Johnson both but on IR.

    Roland should get picked up immediately.

    ridiculous, he was supposed to get at least ONE year of development, not one offseason. Maybe the Pats will sign him later on. He'll be one of those players thats signed and waived 4 times a week.

    Yes, I realized he made the 53 man roster, yesterday...But as Wes Welker found out in the summer of 2004 (cut the day before game 1 to make room for Tim Dwight), Hogan can still get cut in the next few days. Actually, if he makes to Wednesday, he's probably safe for a while. We should not assume the Bills black player personnel head isn't trying hard to claim another black receiver on waivers trying to replace Chris.

    Funny you bring up Tasker? How about the entire division possibly having at least one white WR?

    Hogan (Buffalo), Amendola (NEP), Spadola (NYJ) and Hartline (Mia)....

    When was the last time all 4 teams noted above had at least one white WR at the same time?

    Perhaps going back to the 1970's, when the Baltimore Colts were also in the AFC East? Heck, if Griff Whalen makes the Colts, all 5 "Old School" AFC East teams would have a white WR...

    Stunning?

    Maybe with the Jets ultra-wretched receiving corps, Spadola might make his mark as a rookie. Ethnic name, from the metro area, reminds me of Wayne Chrebet in '95, the only undrafted White receiver to start as a rookie for at least the past 35 years. But do the Jets have a quarterback capable of getting Spadola the ball?

    Jeff Maehl has made the Eagles with Salas cut. Will be interesting to see how many White offensive players will be on Philly's 53 man roster, likely the most since the 1960s or early '70s.

    It will be mid-season before I get used to the idea of hoping for anything good for the Eagles. It seems unnatural. If Foles or Barkley ends up starting, they will almost go from worst to first.
