Best kind of mentor.  He could have taught the kid how to coast until his contract year.

I like Miles, he's been a good soldier, he's just not very good, if we can upgrade you do it. 

I like Middleton.  He is a high level athlete and supposed to be a great leader.  His problems have been injury related, and with the low salary, that doesn't bother me much at all.  I like Miles too, but he is 30.  He's been with the Jets since 2013.  It has to be  unusual for an UDFA to be there through 3 coaches and 3 GMs. Miles time has to be running out.

I said it in the Luck thread. 

Two words. 

Davis. Webb. 

He sucks and he is getting cut.

Or Simien? WTF, if Darnold gets hurt we're facked anyway, why win more games when we could solve a CB,LT, or Pass Rusher problem at the top of round 1. 2020 & on we'll be perennial playoff contenders. 

You think a team is going to offer up a 1st for Trevor Siemian?  Those odds are worse than Derek Carr for League MVP.  Hell, they are probably worse than David Carr for League MVP.

Vikings release cornerback Bene Benwikere and wide receiver Jordan Taylor. 

Taylor's a former 1st rounder who hasn't panned out... Benwikere is a well-traveled CB who has played backup/depth guy on 7 teams in 5 seasons... 

Jordan Taylor is not a 1st rounder.  He was UDFA that hung on with the Broncos for  few years.

Actually, much of the time guys getting cut a little early are veterans who teams are letting go to give them a chance the catch on elsewhere before the season starts.

 

Benwikere is worth a look, if only to antagonize Beckham week 2

Benwikere is an interesting name.  He was on the Dolphins in 2016, but otherwise no link to the Jets personnel guys.

Oops yup, my bad, thanks. That's what I get for trying to read tiny text on a non-mobile website on my phone. 

I figured you were probably thinking of Laquon Treadwell who the Vikings are likely to cut.

Its sad that we are all watching cuts like hawks to fill out the Jets roster and we know that of the 37 players the Jets none of them are going to get claimed. McGuire might make a practice squad or a late addition somewhere since RB turnover is so high. Maybe eventually BB takes a shot at Sheppard and turns him into an allstar. But who would want anyone the Jets cut.

They certainly will.  There are still a whole bunch of Idzik guys hanging around on rosters throughout the NFL, and there have been five drafts since those guys were drafted.

Idzik players yes... Mikey Mac... not so much... He either hit or they are out of the league... 

Eh.  Simon is still with the Packers, Burris with the Browns. Devin Smith has been playing pretty well for the Cowboys.  Derrick Jones is with the Texans after failing the Packers physical.  Leggett caught a TD for Tampa last week.  Hansen has been getting catches for the Texans.  Yes, Hackenberg sucked.  Same for Hairston.  I am not fond of Donhaue and Stewart, but they are both out of the league more based on substance issues than lack of skill/talent.  Mauldin is a slug, with injury and arrest issues and I think he is playing up in Canada.  Make no mistake, I am not defending Mac's drafts, but plenty of these guys will end up on practice squads if/when they are dumped.

Wow, Devin Smith might make a team ... only 5 years too late... But still a long shot

Jones was cut again by the Texans, at least I thought I saw that

Hansen is not going to make the team

Leggett caught a pass but is still a long shot to make the team

Hack was a Hack

So ya... your defense is that these players are still trying out for teams when they have 90 man rosters so that constitutes them making the NFL?? Ya no... 

It's not a defense.  They suck.  Just pointing out that they will probably hang around for a bit on practice squads and getting try-outs.  It is not great accomplishment, but they will get more chances than try out players and the like.  I don't see any ending up as starters.  Smith and Leggett are the only ones I really see having much shot at a rotation.
