The OTC Potential Player Cut Series

Last January I put together a series of posts that looked at the possible salary cap casualties for each position. To make them easier to access I decided to put a link to each article in this post so you can quickly reference them during the lead up to free agency. Each article will detail the cap space saved by cutting a player and a brief explanation as to why I considered the player a possibility to be released.

Potential NFL Cuts- Offense:

  1. Quarterback

  2. Running Back

  3. Wide Receiver

  4. Tight End

  5. Offensive Tackle

  6. Interior Offensive Line

Potential NFL Cuts- Defense:

  1. Defensive End

  2. Defensive Tackle

  3. Linebacker

  4. Cornerback

  5. Safety

    Hopefully I’m not breaking any rules here, but this is a quick snapshot if you wanted to see all at once. I’m not sure if this is just my problem, but trying to open more than 1 tab here makes Chrome grind to a halt.
