This should make Mock's day. We now have the legally required 3 QBs rather than 4.

McDaniels is killing this team, that's the second all pro QB he's let go.

F that.

You give up 2 picks for the guy and cut him before his 2nd training camp.

Seriously though, how long till the real first angry post about someone who couldn't beat out Chris Simms being released?

Wow. This is pretty telling, considering it's so early.

On a side note, we traded up for Brandstater. I don't like that we traded up for someone, even if it was a late round pick, that we ended up cutting. That's the kind of lack of restraint in the draft this FO has shown that annoys me.

I'm not saying it has any kind of long term negative impact, mind you. It just represents a missed opportunity due to a lack of patience.

While it's easy to look back and say this, I do agree with the general sentiment that this FO jumps the shark prematurely in many of the moves it makes.

I agree with the general thought, though most late round picks don't pan out obviously. I'm just surprised they didnt hold on to him longer.

Is it too early to place someone on the PS? Because you have to cut/waive someone before they go on the Practice Squad...

Does not compute. Need more input.

Why do we just outright cut this guy? Did we need the roster space?

Not surprised he was cut. Just didn't expect it this early. Must not have been showing much improvement during the OTA's.

We're doomed. He was our only shot at winning a preseason game this year.

I am not surprised. The number of QB reps is limited. Story should be.....Tim Tebow gets more reps

I have to agree, the FO have shown a tendency to trade up aggressively and more often than not giving up more value than what was called for. I do understand that cutting Brandstater now gives him an option to land on another roster as well as opens up more reps for the other QBs, this also puts a lid on any talk about trading Orton.

I am not surprised Brandstater was the odd man out, the timing is a bit odd though.

Would have preferred to trade him for a draft pick, but this was expected. Hopefully he can make our practice squad

that was my initial thought but I also think this FO seems to be showing a tendency to let players go in time to allow them to catch on with someone

my thought is that McD really likes Tommy B, and sees potential and knows he will land somewhere (I bet he is snatched up by Monday) rather than bury the kid on our PS

Well at least he stuck true to his word that he evaluates all draft picks on a two year basis. Oh wait.
