On September 4th teams will be required to reduce their 80 man rosters to 53 players. However at least 5 players will not even get the chance to be on the roster that long, as rosters have to be down to 75 players by Aug 31st. If you get cut by the 31st, you may find another roster, you may even find yourself on the Jaguars' practice squad. However, in both cases your chances of being in the NFL at all take a big hit if you get cut during the first cuts.
Here's my list as to who might be cut:(I'll probably make an update after I get to see the Tampa replay)
Teddy Lehman - He's a vet that hasn't even seen the field much, much less made any plays.
Alvin Bowen - Hasn't shown the athleticism or hard hitting ability the rest of the group has.
Trevor Harris - If he's not cutting it, you might as well find someone to replace him with a future waiver wire QB. That is, if you still need another camp arm.
Kommonyan Quaye - He's young and he may still have a bright future, but the role he's meant to fill is stacked with competition.
D'Anthony Smith - For obvious reasons will be put on IR getting the team down to it's required 75.
I have to tell you, before I set out to make this list I had no idea how hard it was gonna be to cut the roster down just 5 players. Obviously, that is a good sign as to where this roster is going in terms of talent.
