Sam Williams makes it another season. He appeared comfortable at middle linebacker and plays good special teams, but we haven’t been good since he has been here. Slade Norris is the casualty to keep him.

I have to admit I thought about this one being possible.

Nick Miller will be the kick return man over Justin Miller, who was cut.

Todd Watkins also made it at WR, a surprise to me.

Garcia is out because Frye and Gradkowski were committed to JaMarcus, whatever that means.

Chris Morris is starting center. Not a surprise to me, but a surprise to some. I think he makes best line calls and plays more consistently than other centers.

  • @VicTafur There are no real deadlines until someone puts real $ on the line. Fact that Raiders aren't taking the lead is ominous.
