    I was hoping that A J Lindeman would make the team. It would have been nice to see a local guy make it from a small school.

    I'm concerned about the talk about Hardin possibly being cut.

    Yeah but unfortunately he really, really sucked big time. Most of these local guys are just camp fodder to provide enough bodies to run drills and such. There never is much hope for them.

    I think Hardin is just fine. Major Wright is a FA after this season, and you don't give up on a project pick like him when it also adds possible leverage and future security. Plus, I think it's a safe bet to carry five safeties.

    We could be going too far with this , we are under the assumption that right off the bat ... HALAS HALL knows what its doing.

    Actually this time around they might know what they are doing.

    Steve Maneri and Kyle Adams backing up Martellus Bennett, which basically implies that both backups have made the final 53.

    Considering Miller and Pope were both cut in favor of Maneri and Adams is an interesting topic of discussion all on it's own. Obviously Maneri is the perfect blocking TE as a former OT, but Adams has quietly become an interesting guy to watch. Realize, of course, that the bears signed him just two short years ago as an UDFA, few of which even makes the practice squad, but he saw action in 8 games (ST) in his rookie season. Last year he played in 15 games, and it wasn't all on ST. Now, this is his third season, and he is a potential lock for the 53 man roster pending any other potential signing from the cast offs of other teams. Interesting dynamic playing out with this kid.

    I love it when guys come out of nowhere. It seldom happens so its kinda cool to watch when it does, at least in my opinion. Similar story to Anderson and Tolliver (WR's) but they get a bit more attention at a premium position, so we've already been watching them.

    There have been a lot of rumors that the Lions have pondered cutting Tony Scheffler to save $2 million on the cap. I'm not sure how valid those rumors are. Assuming we could afford him though, he would be a good fit as a receiving type of 2nd TE that they'd hoped for with Onobun. Scheffler and Cutler have a history too.
