HERM EDWARDS: “We made two roster moves today. You know one of them: Jay Feely the kicker and the other is Michael Merritt. Hoyt we let go and Trevor Johnson we let go. We’ve got to do some more things tomorrow by 3 o’clock and we’ll make those decisions then.”

In his press conference this evening.

There better be, I think we're down to 9 with Hoyte being cut.

And another 5 that should be cut by Saturday...

I mean with the cap money we have - it is silly we are soooo thin at LB. CP must be gone.

Please tell us who you would sign.

It's not exactly like the 2008 version of Mike Singletary is waiting for a call from a team...

I thought Athan said Hoyte looked like the real deal out there!

I'm not asking for singletary at all... we have little but UDFAs as back ups... Nap is toast, no?

I was making the point that there's not exactly anyone decent to sign at the moment, nor will there probably be after Saturday's cuts. More late round picks and UDFA's.

So, with that said - who should they go out and sign?

Why wouldn't you cut Novak or Barth when you signed Feely? Hoyte and Johnson must be really weak!

There are teams out there who are deep at LB, the guys they cut might not be starters, but probably better than some of what we got.

They have to cut more by 3:00 PM tomorrow anyways, and I don't believe they have decided who to cut between the two. It sounds like Herm is going to have two kickers (Feely and either Barth or Novak) for the final Preseason game. They still must be indecisive on which one to keep...

Could they be keeping Barth as a KO specialist?

He's the only one of the 3 that can get the ball anywhere near the goal line.

We'll carry 2 kickers just because we don't have anyone else good enough to fill out the roster.
