The transaction wires are filling up with news of players being released by NFL teams in anticipation of Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline to cut from a maximum of 90 to a maximum of 80 players.
We have seen no transactions from the Redskins. And we shouldn't expect to see anything until after four tomorrow.
Mike Shanahan has every intention of keeping every player as long as he can. Actually, the team is currently three players under the limit with 89 players listed and two, safeties Kareem Moore and LaRon Landry, not counting towards the limit because they are on the PUP list.
But don't look for Shanahan to jump the gun and release players early. We still have the 90 guys all the way through our Tuesday practice," he said on Saturday. "That gives us the opportunity to not overwork players, but they will get a lot of reps.”
Given that they are cutting to the number of players they usually start camp with, don't look for many familiar names to be on the cut list tomorrow. Later this afternoon I'll take a look at who might take the hit on the first round of cuts.
