These early cuts show the class McCarthy brings to Dallas. He could have waited, hedging against injury before final cuts were due. Letting Smith, Thorson and Redmond go no will give each of them a leg up on other cuts in latching on with a new team. This philosophy will serve McCarthy and Dallas well in signing guys in the future….

As an aside.. Washington was the Redskins way back un 2019. Forgot huh?

I think Smith being cut comes down to no ST ability. I think we go with 6. You know Coop, Gallup and Lamb are 100% guaranteed. Ill say Wilson, Brown and Bryant are your other 3 to round them out. I can see us cutting Johnson but then PS him if he clears waivers.

Well, the 9ers could always use another WR.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/49ers-place-wide-receiver-tavon-austin-on-ir/ar-BB18Gjqg?li=BB15ms5q

So glad we didn’t re-sign him this season. Would’ve sucked up valuable reps better given to one of the rookies/young guys.

Was never a fan of T Austin. He had a few good yrs (with other teams) but always struck me as a small “gadget guy” who was one dimensional.
