    Per The Score, he refused a pay cut so he will just be cut

    Wilson is the slot. Hixon is the ST/backup wr. They're a ton of better WR's out there then Weems/Bennett out there.

    Read that earlier. After the Hixon signing and reading that Wilson has been working his ass off with Marshall and Jeffery, I didn't really see the point in offering him a pay cut in the first place. I think he was always going to be cut by season start.

    Ric,
    Well then the days of short WR's are over. Look at the size of our current WR's.
    There are no short speedy WR's on DAA BEARRSSE anymore.
    This is going into a whole different gameplan built on the recent past.

    With the letting go of Weems and Williams ... no one is under six feet.

    Our new KR/PR Chris Williams can play the slot as well. I was surprised they didn't cut Weems earlier.

    Weems gone!!!! :stpat3:

    Where's the slot? Where have you been? On Mars getting a new supply of male chauvinism? :rofl2:

    Last year we drafted Marquess Wilson and just this week we signed Dominik Hixon. And we replaced his 10 special teams tackles by signing another two or three DBs all of whom excel on STeams. All five of them combined probably equal less in cap cost than Weems and Bennett. I'm sad to see Earl go but on this team he has nowhere to play that will use him as well as he should be used. And Weems was the biggest waste of a contract I've seen since Emery arrived. At least the chose not to use Bush as much as they should have. Weems played and still did less than an UDFA who would have made 1/3 of what he get paid.

    He was "welcomed back with open arms" .....poor sap. Where is the loyalty? It all started going down hill when Hester was replaced by Brandon Marshall as our #1 WR. :)

    David Haugh wrote that Ted Phillips had to stand in Phil Emery's office with a gun to Phil's head and force him to do it. :smilebig:
