    I figured since he hadn't been released yet that he had agreed or was being given an opportunity to shop himself before deciding. I don't give him much of chance of sticking this time around if Hixon shows well in camp. To me Weems has been over paid ever since he arrived. His days as a top KR were long gone and he makes far too much for a coverage guy who is as marginal a WR as Hester ever was or even less.

    Yeah, I was kinda disappointed he wasn't just cut outright. The pay cut is great and all but I don't see Weems providing much of anything for us this year. Like Soul said, his days of an elite KR are done and we can get a 6th round developmental DB to play on STs in coverage and do fine. Anyone know what we would save cap wise by cutting him?

    Approx $1m net of dead money pre-pay cut.

    I don't understand why this guy is still on the team, pay cut or not. He adds nothing on O and his chief ST talents seem to be committing penalties.

    Yep, graduated from return specialist to return killing penalty specialist.

    I see him as a camp body and not much more but maybe this will motivate him to play better.

    How can you say his days as a return man are long gone when he want given chances to be the return man?

    If he could reverse that and become a "penalty killing specialist" the Hawks might have an interest. They're down a few guys right now. LOL
