The six veterans cut are QB Todd Bouman, RB Ciatrick Fason, LB Tony Gilbert, DT Jesse Mahelona, DE Kenny Pettway and DE Bo Schobel.
The rookies/first-year players include fifth-round draft pick DB Trae Williams and 12 others: TE Chris Brown, DE Mkristo Bruce, OT Andrew Carnahan, TE Charles Davis, CB Isaiah Gardner, CB Michael Grant, WR Ryan Hoag, G/OT Pete McMahon, C/G Drew Miller, CB Rashod Moulton, LB Lamar Myles and WR D’Juan Woods.
Put on the PUP list were DB Chad Nkang and DL Jeremy Mincey.
DT Jonathan Lewis was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury that he suffered in Thursday’s preseason game against the Redskins.
We kept six WRs which meant we had to go with two QBs for the season and that's always a little worrisome with such a long season nowadays. I really like Todd Bouman and would be a little shocked if he didn't sign as a back up somewhere because it is clear he's still got it.
The team's personal roadrunner (Witherspoon) is still on the squad despite two fumbles during the preseason. The front office must've figured that his speed just wouldn't clear waivers. He could end up being special... As a USF alumni I was a little sad to see Trae Williams go, but he didn't show much so he was shown the door.
Troy Williamson obviously earned a spot during the last preseason game. Ironic that the reason he's still on the team is that perfect pass thrown by Todd Bouman for a TD, and the reason Todd isn't on the team is because Troy is our 6th reciever. Go figure...
